Pilgrim Baptist Church brings people to God by sharing Christ’s message of love. It is a hopeful, healing, inclusive message — one that answers emptiness and cynicism with spiritual meaning and purpose. We eagerly share this message, individually and as a Christian community, through preaching, teaching, worship, prayer, and outreach. As a church we provide leadership to embrace diversity, to set standards of high quality in our activities, and to address the issues of our time. We invite everyone to join us on a life-long journey of spiritual growth.
