We are a body of believers committed to worshiping and serving the Lord.
The mission of East End Baptist Church is to minister to you and your loved ones and to help strengthen your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are a body of believers committed to worshipping and serving Jesus Christ. As a  Baptist Church, we join with likeminded Christians in spreading the gospel around the world
Our slogan, “A Church with a Passion for God and People,,” is more than just a phrase. We hope that it gives you insight into just who we are. Christ reached out to people of all ages and backgrounds and at our church we desire to do the same. That is why here you will discover ministries geared to various life stages and needs. That is why we have a place for everyone to study the scriptures, fellowship together, and minster to others through numerous service opportunities. We want  you to be a part of the blessings of God in the life of our church.
