Organized in 1881 with nine charter members, this was the first Baptist church founded in the new town of Baird. Elder G.P. Johnson led worship services until the Rev. L.S. Knight was called as the first full-time pastor. After meeting in the town schoolhouse for a few years, a church building was completed at this site in 1889, and the first parsonage was built in 1892. The congregation continued to grow and produced several ministers from its membership. Active in mission work, the church has been a vital part of community life in Baird.
