The warmhearted church with the heartwarming message!
7409 River Road Newport News, VA 23607 Phone: 757-244-2387 Pastor: Tommy Davidson
Who we are... We were formed in the 1940’s and have been a presence in this neighborhood since then. We have had 4 pastors over these decades, and numerous other staff members have served here and made vital contributions to the life of our fellowship. The congregation has always been committed to missions, both local and international, and we hold the scriptures in very high regard.
We consider ourselves a family, and we love people, constantly striving to draw new persons in to enjoy closeness and spiritual growth with us. We are members of the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia (SBCV) and locally with the Peninsula Baptist Association (PBA).
A typical Sunday morning worship service here lasts about an hour and 15 minutes. We generally sing a mix of praise songs and traditional hymns, and the messages are expository in nature, sometimes sermons coming from one verse and at other times from longer passages. Though some wear traditional attire like coats and ties or dresses, many come in business/casual clothing. Relax about that.
