Clemmons First Baptist is a fellowship of Christ-followers who are committed to showing God’s love and Christ’s life example to each other, to our community, and to all the world. While we recognize and appreciate diverse perspectives, we are united by our common faith in God the Father as our Creator and Sustainer, Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit as the One who empowers us to be witnesses. We cherish the Bible as the inspired Word of God, our ultimate authority for faith and practice, and we encourage our members to read, study, and allow it to form and shape us spiritually. We affirm the traditional Baptist beliefs including soul freedom, local church autonomy, the priesthood of the believer, and religious freedom. We are Baptist Christians, and as such we align ourselves with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of NC, and the Baptist State Convention of NC as mission partners, along with a host of other local entities.
CFBC traces its roots back to 1863 when a group of Baptists met under the name Muddy Creek Meeting House. After relocating to Clemmons in 1874, Muddy Creek became Clemmons Baptist Church. The foundation of our present site was laid in 1905. Several building additions and renovations have taken place in the intervening years, but the rich history remains the same. Over the many decades of our beloved community, we have established a new Family Life Center, a three-story educational facility, and a renovated sanctuary. “Resilience in the face of difficulty” is the way many members have described the church. After our beloved pastor, Rev. Scott Hammett, passed into eternal life in 2018, the congregation was filled with renewed passion for our growing community in Clemmons, North Carolina. During this time, we adopted a simple slogan that sums up the spirit of CFBC: “Welcome to the Journey”.
