University Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church located in the new City of Brookhaven, inside the 285 Perimeter in NE Atlanta, Georgia. Our church is easily accessible from anywhere in the greater Atlanta area. Our church facilities are located on approximately 1.5 acres in Dekalb County.
The church was founded the last of September in 1928 and has had a strong tie to the community for 86 years. This year, 2015, will mark the 87th Anniversary of its founding. There have been many changes through the years. As with any community, the area is always developing. We are seeing new growth in our area which will bring many new people to our doorsteps. University Baptist Church has a great heritage and also a great future ahead. Our church has been blessed to have some wonderful pastors, deacons and families that through the years have stood the test of time.
There are more than 15,000 independent Baptist churches in America and at least 10,000 independent Baptist missionaries serving on mission fields worldwide.
Every independent Baptist church is an autonomous congregation. We are self- governing and self-supporting. The head of the church is the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible is our sole authority for faith and practice. It is our desire to be a truly New Testament church.
At the University Baptist Church, though we have one message-the message of the Lord Jesus Christ, and one ministry-the ministry He has given us to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, the church is also active in spreading the gospel in our local community as well as forty-five mission works in the U.S. and around the world.
