Our History

First Baptist Church - Haltom City was organized in December of 1951. The Pastor was W.W. Baker. At that time, the church was located on the north side of Fort Worth on 25th Street. It was originally called The Baptist Temple. God blessed this young congregation with many souls saved and lives changed.

Because of the blessing of God, it became necessary to seek a larger meeting place. In the early 60''s, the church moved to a new building located at 1800 Terminal Road in the Diamond Hill section of Fort Worth. At this time, the name was changed to Terminal Baptist Church. In the middle 60''s, Brother Baker resigned to take a church in Oklahoma and Brother B. W. Wallace was called as pastor of the church. About two years later, he resigned and left the church. At that time, M. M. Mosley was called to pastor Terminal Baptist Church.

Paster M.M. Mosley came to the church in August of 1967. Soon after he came to the church, a bus ministry was begun. The church grew and an addition was made to the church building to provide more classrooms and a fellowship hall. Because of several factors, the church began to look for another location. Finally, an agreement was made to purchase the Twin Oaks Baptist Church facility at 5800 Denton Highway. The church moved to that location on Mother''s Day of 1975 and the name of the church was changed again to its present name, First Baptist Church - Haltom City.

The Lord has been very good to us over the years. A Christian School was begun in August of 1976. Many graduates have gone forth from there in the last 37+ years.


Brother M. M. Mosley remained as Senior Pastor of the church until his death in February of 2006. At that time his son, C. M. Mosley, became the Pastor. We continue to serve the Lord and carry on the work for God.
