First Baptist Church of Barron Wisconsin is an independent, Bible-centered Baptist church, associated with the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches (GARBC). The church was founded in Barron in 1894, and has for more than 120 years faithfully spread the message of hope and forgiveness found in Jesus Christ.
As a church we exist for three reasons: to worship, honor and glorify God in all things; encourage and build up one another in the faith of Jesus Christ; and to introduce others to Jesus Christ personally as Savior and Lord. All that we do as a church aims at one or more of these goals and purposes.
We meet on Sundays for worship, prayer, study of God’s word, encouragement and fellowship. We meet during the week with our youth, children’s club, Reformers Unanimous addictions ministry and other opportunities. We also have a three M’s group (Ministry Minded Members) where we are learning to share our faith practically, live our faith passionately and grow in our faith progressively.

My name is Floyd Lunde, and I am the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Barron, WI. My wife Becky and I have been serving here since October 2014, and have found the people to be a wonderful family of faith and a community of believers committed to honoring the Lord and advancing His work in this world.
Our journey has been long and varied. My wife, Becky, was the daughter of a Pastor and heard the gospel of our Lord from infancy. At the age of 7, she understood that God wanted to forgive and save her personally and she put her faith and trust in Jesus Christ and became a born-again Christian. I grew up in Minneapolis, MN., with one older brother. At the age of 17, I came to trust the Lord personally as Savior and Lord. My life changed from that day forward.
Our church exists for three reasons: to honor and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ in all things, to build up one another in the faith and to introduce others to the Savior Jesus Christ. All that we do and all that we hope to accomplish must be focused on those three main goals. If you are seeking a church where God is honored, people are encouraged and the gospel is explained clearly, come and grow with us. Let's serve God together in our journey of faith.
