Commonwealth Baptist Church

Mission Statement

Commonwealth Baptist Church is a progressive community of faith that is open, welcoming, and affirming of all people in our worship and mission. We are a loving Christian fellowship that seeks peace and justice, equips ourselves and others for service, and seeks to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the greater community through radical acts of hospitality and uncommon compassion.

When Jesus is asked what is the most important commandment to follow, he says that there are actually two: love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, and mind and love your neighbor. At Commonwealth Baptist Church, we think this teaching sums up the heart of Christianity in a nutshell. We strive to love God and other people with every fiber of our being.

We believe that in order to love God most fully, we need the support, encouragement, and insights of other people who also seek to follow Jesus. At Commonwealth Baptist Church we worship, practice spiritual formation, and serve together. We are a loving Christian community that seeks peace and justice, equips ourselves and others for service, and seeks to meet the spiritual and physical needs of the greater community through radical acts of hospitality and uncommon compassion.

We believe that all people are created in the image of God as beloved children of God and are called to participate in God’s redemptive plan for the world. We welcome and affirm all people in our worship and mission regardless of age, race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, or social standing. Whether you are 9 or 90, cisgender or transgender, binary or non-binary, gay or straight, a committed Christian or someone curious about faith, whether you live in mansion or on the street, you are welcome here.
