FBCMINIFirst Baptist Church is a unique group of people God has assembled in Benton, Kentucky. Since the church is 150 years old, many of our members have roots extending back for generations, but due to the industrial complex in the northern end of the county and the retirement allure of the Kentucky Lake region, an influx of people from other parts of the country now call Benton and Marshall County home. God has brought together a special collection of people who seek to serve Him as they employ their many gifts and talents to contribute to this body of believers. Young and old alike discover opportunities for worship, fellowship, and service both in our backyard and around the world. We trust this web site will provide you with some insight into what God is doing in and through His church.

After 22 years as pastor of First Baptist Benton, Don Wilson, retired on April 1, 2018. We thank the Lord for the wonderful ministry of Don and Carol!

Please join us each Sunday as our church prayerfully searches for a new pastor.


Dr. Larry Purcell will fill the pulpit in August.
