Who We Are

The mission of Broadway Baptist Church is to share in Christ’s work of reconciling the world to God. This mission is accomplished by the church through its members.  We are supported by an environment that provides:
Personal and corporate worship experiences that encourage an on-going relationship with God;
Proclamation and education that promote spiritual growth and development;
Fellowship that provides care, support and nurture of individuals in their journeys of faith;
Preparation and support of persons for mission, outreach and ministry in their homes, neighborhoods, workplaces and the world.

Since 1882 Broadway Baptist Church has been located between South Main and South Jennings Streets in Fort Worth’s Near Southside. Our Gothic style sanctuary inspires and uplifts with its high vaulted ceilings and beautiful stained glass windows. Sacred worship is led by Bible inspired preaching and the sounds of our world-class Casavant organ.

What We Believe

We believe God is known through Jesus Christ. We believe that through Jesus Christ, men and women are called of God not only to the ministry, but in service to our church.

We hold to the historic Baptist principles of Religious Liberty, Soul Freedom, and Local Church Autonomy. All people are welcome to worship with us.

We are affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, and a significant portion of our work and our giving goes to missions. We believe that the good news of Jesus should be spread around the world. We regularly send mission teams around the world and the Navajo nation to do that work, and we support several missions organizations.
