transforming lives, one soul at a time

Our vision is to become an intentional purpose driven church that transforms lives by engaging in worship, witnessing, word, works, and relationships; one soul at a time while carrying out the Great Commission.

Who we are

About Us

We the members of Eighth Street Baptist Church respond with our faith wholly in the Lord, Jesus Christ, for our salvation and believe in the teaching of the Holy Bible as the completely and verbally inspired Word of the Living God.

We voluntarily join ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to all humankind.

We are an intentional purpose-driven church, in pursuit of excellence, that will seek and save the lost, equip the saints, and be a safe-haven for the hurting and wounded, as we lift up the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ throughout our community and the world.

Prayer Requests

We offer prayer and support to those in need. Everyone needs help at some point in their lives. Whether it’s the loss of a loved one, physical illness, addiction issues, financial crisis or an emotional setback, sooner or later we all face challenges too difficult for us to manage by ourselves. You aren’t alone. Eighth Street Baptist Church is here for you.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7, NKJV

Tithes and offering

Giving makes a difference

The Bible says in Matthew 6:24 that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. Not having cash or check on hand doesn’t have to hold you back from giving.

Tithing is bringing the first 10 percent of our income back to God. It’s a way to worship God by showing Him that we trust His promises. It’s also a way to protect our hearts from greet. By bringing back to God what is rightfully His, we remind ourselves that everything we have comes from Him. 

Offerings are any gifts we give over and above the tithe. As we understand how generous God is to us, we’ll find ourselves wanting to be more and more generous toward Him.
