Our staff recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.



Dr. Scott Wilson, Pastor

Pastor Wilson is a native of the Carolina’s born and raised just a few miles up the road in Hickory. He accepted Christ at the age of seven years old and answered God’s call to ministry at the age of seventeen. Pastor Wilson has been blessed with the opportunity to preach and serve in churches all throughout the Southeastern United States. He has a deep love for God’s Word and passion for preaching, teaching, reaching, and helping people have a more intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Joining our Pastor on his journey is his beautiful wife Anne-Marie and their daughter Elisabeth. Anne-Marie worked for 10 years in the public school systems of West Virginia and has served the Lord in many different areas throughout her life.
Our family is so excited about what God is already doing, and the endless possibilities of what he could do here at First Baptist. There is nothing like the joy of worshipping and serving the Lord in a church where everyone is treated like family and where God gets all the glory. That’s what you’ll find at First Baptist of Marshville. So, come be a part of what God is doing, and join the First Baptist Family!” – Pastor Wilson
Betty Manus, Church Secretary
Betty has been married for 49 wonderful years to Parks Manus (retired from Postal Service). Their only child, Chris, his wife, Tonya, and our grandson, Wyatt (14) live in Lincolnton.  She and Parks enjoy traveling to Wyatt’s ballgames — basketball and baseball. Last year they had the opportunity to go to Cooperstown, New York to see Wyatt play baseball. When Betty is not attending ballgames, she enjoys reading and shopping.
She retired after 19 years as Secretary to the President of Wingate University. Prior to that she worked in the poultry industry — Cuddy Farms and WLR Foods for a total of 18 years. FBC Marshville is so fortunate that she didn’t want to be totally retired!
Betty and Parks have been members of Deep Springs Baptist Church for over 40 years.  They serve as co-treasurers and Parks also serves as a Deacon.
