"Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which
God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 3:13-14

Having entered the 21st century, Ridge Avenue Baptist Church faces many new challenges and new opportunities. The world around us continues to change. As Christians, we must be innovative enough to meet these new challenges and opportunities without compromising the one to whom we belong, who we are, and what we have been called to do.

Our church is about people, not buildings. As you browse through this website, you will see the faces of people whom God has called to serve Him. This is a body of believers with a vision to serve God and a vision for the future. Our desire is to fulfill the great commandment by loving God with all of our hearts and the great commission by reaching people where they are, and helping them become fully devoted followers of Christ. We want to make a difference in our city, our parish, our state, our country, and the world.

May God bless you and your family as we serve our Lord together.
