What To Expect

We’d love to have you at our Sunday worship gathering. We come together to enjoy God’s presence and encounter biblical truth. Our time includes passionate worship through singing, the reading of scripture, prayer and the preaching of God’s word.

What We Believe

We believe “that any group of Baptists, large or small, have the inherent right to draw up for themselves and publish to the world a confession of their faith whenever they think it advisable to do so…confessions are only guides and interpretations, having no authority over the conscience…therefore the sole authority for faith and practice among Baptists is Jesus Christ, whose will is revealed in the Holy Scriptures”… “We do not regard this confession as a complete statement of our faith, having any quality of finality or infallibility…We hold ourselves free to revise our statements of faith as may seem wise and expedient at any time.”

Our History

Having prayed for weeks, a faith-filled group of believers met at the home of Miss Maxine Chism on February 18, 1953, to seek the Lord’s will in establishing a new church body. Each individual knew that such a move would take courage and sacrifice as they would be leaving a large, long-established church to start from nothing.

On March 15, 1953, University Baptist Church was formally organized. There were 178 charter members. The church first met in a rented building at 108 N. West Street. Dr. Walter Johnson, who had resigned his position at First Baptist, was called to be the first pastor. He served from March 1953 to January 1965.

Our Passion

Glorifying God by Treasuring Christ above all things and Reaching others that they may find lasting joy in Him. This statement is the passion and heartbeat of University Baptist Church. We believe that glorifying God is something we cannot assume, rather explicitly be passionate about in all things.
