OUR VISON & MISSION
Original Providence Baptist Church seeks to become a healthy “Great Commission” Church where people of all walks of life, cultural and ethnic backgrounds can come together to worship and serve God.
1863 – Original Providence Baptist Church was organized by freedmen and fugitives and was called “Providence Baptist Church “because the name suggested divine guidance. The church began at 26 North Irving Avenue as the fulfillment of the hopes and dreams of a few fugitives from slavery.
