We were the first Southern Baptist church established in Johnson County, Kansas, and have parental ties to many of the large Baptist churches currently calling Johnson County home.

Our congregation represent multiple generations, from the charter members to a new generation of young families who come from a variety of church backgrounds, and, awesomely, no church background at all.

In recent years, we have started phenomenal community ministries such as Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS), Upward Sports basketball and cheerleading, AWANA Clubs, Trail Life USA (Christ-centered alternative to Boy Scouts) and Wednesday Night Dinners prepared by our professional chef.

As our ministries and service to our community has evolved, so has our building. Walking into our building, you will notice an eclectic mix of original and new construction, and we love the story it tells. Ask us about it when you visit.

We have been partners with the Kansas-Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptists as well as the Kansas City Kansas Baptist Association since 1953. We have long been known as one of the most faithful congregations in giving toward the Southern Baptist Convention’s Global Missions Fund.

Several of our current or former members serve as missionaries in foreign countries, including Russia, Guatemala and Thailand.

Our vision is to glorify God and make disciples by transforming lives, building relationships, and impacting communities through Jesus Christ.
