Philadelphia Baptist Church

A Little About Us…

Our Purpose

We believe that we exist to bring God glory by:

  • Loving God with all our hearts
  • Demonstrating God’s love to others
  • Sharing the Gospel with the world
  • Training believers to be true disciples of Christ


Worship Services

No matter what background you come from, you will appreciate our classic style of worship. Our songs are distinctly Christian. The focal point of every service is the preaching of God’s word. The Gospel is the central theme of our message. Each week we seek to learn how the truth of the Bible should affect every area of our lives.

Our main services times are:

  • Sunday School @ 10am
  • Sunday Morning @ 11am
  • Sunday Evening @ 6pm
  • Wednesday Prayer Meeting and Kids Club @7pm


Here are some of the core doctrines to which we hold:

  • There is one God who exists eternally in three person, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  • The Bible is the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God.
  • Everyone is a sinner and needs a savior.
  • Jesus Christ, who is God the Son, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died in our place on the cross, was buried and rose again to make eternal life available to all.
  • Salvation is by grace through faith alone apart from any work of our own.

Sunday School Small Group Studies

The truth of God’s word is best communicated from heart to heart. For this reason, we start every Sunday with Sunday School at 10am. The small group setting gives people a great opportunity to get to know people better and allows for more interaction between teachers and students.

Ministries for the whole family

We believe that everyone in the family deserves to be ministered to. We strive hard to maintain a balance in our ministries so that no matter you stage of life, you’ll find something that will be a help you.

Community Events

While it is important that we minister to those whom God brings into our church, we also recognize that the Gospel cannot be confined by four walls and a roof. We believe that we have a responsibility to reach out to the community and spread the message of the Gospel and show the love of God.

Missions Program

The preaching of the Gospel is the primary focus of our ministry. As followers of God, we take the responsibility to share the message of God’s love with all the world very seriously. We currently support 34 Missionaries and Organizations that are focused on sharing the gospel with the lost all over the world.
