Loving Jesus and Making His Love Known

Who We Are


University Baptist Church is a community of people that gather together on a journey of personal faith in the context of Jesus’ teachings. We express our relationship with God through worship on Sundays and, through Community Groups meeting in homes throughout the week, and through service in our community and around the world.

          Our Mission:  "Loving Jesus and Making His Love Known"

          Our Values:  The Great Commission and the Great Commandment

               Jesus' Great Commission: "I have been given all authority in heaven and earth! Go to the people of all nations and make them my disciples. Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to do everything that I have told you. I will be with you always, even unto the end of the world."

               Jesus' Great Commandment: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. This is the first and most important commandment. The second most important commandment is this one, "Love others as much as you love yourself." All the Law of Moses and Books of the Prophets are based on these two commandments.
