First Baptist Church, Oyo (the Sanctuary of Praise) is one of the oldest baptist churches of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, founded in 1858 AD and strategically located along Iseyin bye-pass, Isokun Oyo.
The evangelistic foundation of the church is traceable to the pioneering work of:
- Rev T.A. Reid (1858-1864)
- Rev P.A. Eubank (1889-1891)
- Rev S.G. Pinnock (1891-1909)
- and the indigenous mission work of Rev J.A Taiwo (1933-1963) and others that followed him.
