Our Story

The church began on November 14, 1915 as Seminary Hill Baptist Church and from that day forward has tried to love God and to love people.  Are you looking for a church where your whole family can learn more about the Lord?  Gambrell Street Baptist Church is a teaching church with lots of friendly people and great teachers.  Our worship services are traditional and authentic.  Members are an important part of our worship.  They participate in choirs, singing from hymnals, reading scripture, and praying.


"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.  Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, the right hand of the throne of God."  Hebrews 12:1-2

Our Ministries


No matter your stage or season of life, we want you and your family to join us!  Your family is always welcome here at Gambrell.


Children

Helping Children to Learn to follow Jesus


Gambrell Street Baptist Church is dedicated to sharing God's love with children and their families.  We offer support to our parents as they teach their children to love and serve Jesus every day.

We provide a secure and safe environment for children as they experience different ways to connect with God.  We hope you and your family will consider becoming a part of our church family.


Jesus said,

"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."  Matthew 19:14
