WE ARE MISSIONARY
“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus” – Colossians 1:27-28
We are missionary means that we believe it our responsibility to reach our families, peers, communities, cities, states, nation, and world with the gospel and love of Jesus Christ. There were no boundaries for Christ and we are here to follow His example!
Quaker Avenue Baptist Church is a place to belong, a place to fellowship, and a place to serve. It is our goal to provide a place where you can be led into a growing and fruitful relationship with Jesus Christ while building relationships with others who are seeking a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
