Since 1854, University Baptist Church has welcomed the wise and the simple, the proud and the broken, the strong and the weak. We are a loving congregation, intent upon following Jesus and determined to encourage thoughtful, spirited faith.

We believe God speaks to every person through the mystery of Holy Spirit, and we see ourselves as spiritual midwives, assisting in revealing the personal grace-gifts we each have received from our loving Creator.

Come join us.

~ Dr. Mitchell Simpson
