Welcome to United Baptist Church

First of all, thank you for visiting our web site. We appreciate you taking the time to see what we're all about. Here at United Baptist Church, our focus is multi-directional. First, we focus upward - on God and His plan for us as Christians. Next, we focus on you - our visitors; our goal is to help you grow in your relationship with the One who loves you more than anything, even His own life. Lastly, we focus on ourselves; we want to make sure we're doing all we can do to love God and love others - all for His glory. We hope this site is helpful to you.  Have a blessed day!
