We have a great team here at First Baptist Orangefield and we can't wait to meet you. Here's a bit more about us.
In the early 1900’s, three Baptist churches existed in our area, “Old First,” in McLewis, “Evergreen Baptist” in Duncan Woods, and “Burton Baptist” in Winfree Community, but none in the Orange oil field to serve the spiritual needs of the people here—the farmers, oil field workers and their families. On August 3, 1922, at a prayer meeting and singing in the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. Cay McGill, our church was organized as a mission of the Burton Baptist Church of Winfree.
