The congregation was founded in 1855 as the United Baptist Church of the City of Kansas, MO when there were only 500 residents clinging to the banks of the river as the last outpost for travelers going west on the Santa Fe Trail and other Westbound trails. Today First Baptist Church is the oldest free-standing Protestant church founded in Kansas City. The congregation has occupied five different buildings including the current colonial designed building built in 1963 in south Kansas City.
