Founded in 1905, First Baptist church in Bayamo was one of the first four Eastern Baptist Convention churches in Cuba. It currently meets in a two and a half story building and has 800 members.
It is the home of a theological training school for missionaries and church leaders. This school ministers to the training needs of leaders in the whole province.
In 1928 First Baptist in Bayamo founded the first Convention Youth Board with one of their own members as President. Youth ministry and training is a vital part of the ministry of the church. The current president of the Eastern Baptist Youth is once again from First Baptist Church, Bayamo.
First Baptist has now planted 11 churches.
