Welcome to the Historic Congdon Street Baptist Church where a glad hand and a warm heart greet you in the worship of God.
Since its inception in 1819, Congdon Street Baptist Church has been more than a place of religious worship. It has served as a community center, a school and refuge for its neighboring institutions of higher learning. Known locally as "the friendly church on the hill", our doors have always been open to the community at large. We are one strong team working for Christ to win souls, minister to the poor, work in our community for peace and justice, and empower our youths so that they will face their future with hope.
Congdon Street Baptist Church is very pleased to welcome our new pastor, the Reverend James Edward Dove. Reverend Dove's first Sunday in the pulpit was our December 5, 2010 Communion Sunday worship service. An informal luncheon was hosted by the church after the service to provide an opportunity to welcome and meet Reverend Dove and his wife, our new First Lady, Rita Smith Dove.
In the community of faith we become the people of God and proclaim the acceptable message of salvation.
The Rev. James E. Dove, Pastor
