About Us

Founded by sixteen Welsh Baptists on April 22, 1711, we are proud of our almost 300 years of continuous Christian service in this community. We worship and study on ground rich in American history. While we strive to revere and learn from the past, we endeavor to have a creative program that meets the needs of the present.

We worship each Sunday morning at 10:30 AM in our Meeting House. Nursery care is available during the worship service.

The Baptist Church in the Great Valley is a place to meet new friends, to discuss ideas and concerns and to find spiritual renewal and strength to face the demands of our modern world. We seek to be a warm, outgoing congregation, concerned about people and their lives. Believing deeply in the Baptist tradition of individual freedom, we have open membership and invite anyone to join our fellowship through a profession of faith in Jesus Christ, a letter of transfer from another Christian church, or believer's baptism.

We are part of over 1.3 million American Baptists in the United States. There are over 6,000 churches, 112 of which are in the Philadelphia area. American Baptist Churches value independence, with each church choosing its own style and emphases of ministry. American Baptists believe strongly in the separation of church and state. They are ecumenical in spirit and cooperate with other churches for fellowship and mission.

Our Affiliation: Our church is a member of the Philadelphia Baptist Association. Please visit their website at www.philadelphiabaptist.info
