Our Roots


First Baptist Church of Mount Olive is a church with deep roots grounded in our history and tradition. The church was organized in October 1863 by a group of Baptists in the Thunder Swamp Baptist Church. We have continued a commitment to tradition for over 156 years while embracing a new spirit of innovation in the 2020’s. We are affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF), CBF of North Carolina, and various local, state, and national ministries.
