A Congregation of Congregations
"Behold, a great multitude ... from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues..." - Revelation 7:9
First Baptist Church reflects the racial and ethnic diversity of our community and our denominational family, ABC USA. The Executive Minister of ABC Wisconsin, Rev. Marie Onwubuariri, is a national leader in helping churches welcome and include people of all races and generations. Four racial/ethnic congregations are nested in our facility: Christ Kingdom Ministry (led by Rev. Roberson) is predominantly African-American; First Baptist Church, Ministerio Hispano (led by Pastor Juan Diego Arcila) and Iglesia Cristiana Ebenezer (led by Pastor Norma Rivera) are Spanish language; and Waukesha Karen Baptist Church (shepherded by Gaw Paw) is composed primarily of Karen people who have emigrated from Myanmar (Burma). All are invited to meet quarterly for shared worship around the Lord's table!
