Welcome to

Unaka Avenue Baptist Church

We have been following Jesus Christ since 1915 – over 100 years.  Please join us as we continue to follow Jesus Christ, who loved us first, and advance the ministry handed down over several generations of Christian saints.


What to Expect

When we speak of “worship,” we are referring to the life of our congregation: attending worship services, creating music, honoring life.


Contacts & Members

Church life means faith, relationship, discipline, service, responsibilities of church leaders and members, and much more.

Beliefs and History

Love is a key attribute in Christianity. The love of God is a prevalent concept both in the Old Testament and the New Testament.
