First Baptist Church of Painted Post is a historic Baptist church located at Painted Post in Steuben County, New York. The church was originally built in 1860 and expanded and remodeled in 1915 after a fire destroyed the mid-19th century building's tower and spire. The three-part church consists of the main block—a 40-foot-wide (12 m), 60-foot-deep (18 m), gable-roofed edifice built in 1860 and now containing the sanctuary; the front wing—a 40-foot-wide (12 m), 12-foot-deep (3.7 m) addition built in 1915 and now containing the foyer and narthex; and a noncontributing rear addition. The front wing features two massive square corner towers surmounted by louvered bell towers and bell curved roofs.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.[1]
