HistoryThe First Baptist Church of Lakewood located at 1380 Ammons Street. A small group of Baptists used to meet at the Methodist Church at Colfax and Allison Streets until they decided to meet on Sundays. They finally moved into the Lakewood Grange Hall at 14th and Brentwood Streets. As the group grew, they planned for a regular church building. Land was acquired at 14th and Ammons Streets, July, 1942. A delay was caused because of the World War II. Dedication was November 1952. They have two residences for pastors.
