Fredericksburg Baptist Association was granted approval in 1975 to begin a new mission in the Spotsylvania Courthouse area. In a few years, this mission became Spotsylvania Baptist Church.
Services were first held in the Spotsylvania Courthouse Volunteer Fire Department building. Land for the church building was purchased in 1977, and a ground-breaking ceremony was held at the site July 30, 1978. The mission was constituted as a church on December 17, 1978 and named Spotsylvania Baptist Church.
Spotsylvania Baptist Church members, members of other churches, and friends began work on the church building in 1978. The congregation moved into the basement of the building on October 17, 1979. The first service in the sanctuary was held March 22, 1981.
Our Statement of Faith…
Our Covenant Together…
Having been led, as we believe by the Spirit of God, to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord and, on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, in the presence of God, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love: to strive for advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, and the relief of the poor, and the spread of the gospel through all nations.
We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting and excessive anger; to abstain from anything that may cause our brother or sister in Christ to sin; and to be zealous to advance the kingdom of our Savior.
We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love, to remember one another in prayer; to aid one another in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and Christian courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay.
We moreover engage that when we remove from this place we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.

Pastor Jeff Parsons
Church: 540-582-5680 The Pastor gladly offers his services to all who are in need of prayer, comfort or spiritual guidance. He will be happy to visit the sick, aged, shut-in, downhearted and all others who need help, and will read God's Word and pray with them. He particularly desires to meet and help those who have not yet accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior, and newcomers in the community who have no local church home. He extends to you a double invitation to attend this church from the entire church membership, and from his own heart as well. God Bless.
