First Baptist Church of Barron Wisconsin is an independent, Bible-centered Baptist church, associated with the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches (GARBC). The church was founded in Barron in 1894, and has for more than 125 years faithfully spread the message of hope and forgiveness found in Jesus Christ.
As a church we exist for three reasons: to worship honor and glorify God in all things; encourage and build up one another in the faith of Jesus Christ; and to introduce others to Jesus Christ personally as Savior and Lord. All that we do as a church aims at one or more of these goals and purposes. you can find more about what we believe as a church on our belief’s page.
We meet on Sundays for worship, prayer, study of God’s word, encouragement and fellowship. We meet during the week with our youth group, children’s Awana club, and other opportunities.

My name is Floyd Lunde, and I am the senior pastor of the First Baptist Church in Barron, WI. My wife Becky and I have been serving here since October 2014, and have found the people to be a wonderful family of faith and a community of believers committed to honoring the Lord and advancing His work in this world.
Our Doctrine & Practice
Scriptural truth is the backbone of any true church, and First Baptist Church of Barron is no different.
As a foundational part of our doctrine, we believe in the authority and sufficiency of the Holy Bible, consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, as originally written; that it was verbally and plenarily inspired and is the product of Spirit-controlled men, and therefore is infallible and inerrant in all matters of which it speaks. We believe the Bible to be the true center of Christian unity and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creed, and opinions shall be tried.
(2 Timothy 3:16, 17; 2 Peter 1:19–21)
As a Baptist Church that is a member of the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches, we join more than 1,300 churches to proclaim God’s Truth.
First Baptist Church is modeled after New Testament churches in many respects, including issues of membership, baptism, sovereignty of the local church and our Great Commission.
