About Us

 Ash Avenue Baptist Church

is a family of followers

of the Lord Jesus Christ!


A Little History

The church was established in 1952 by First Baptist Church of South Boston

and the Virginia Baptist  Mission Board  for the mill workers of Carter Fabric

( later known as J.P. Stevens  Co ).

Originally founded as Faith Baptist Church, the young congregation

wanted it's name to reflect its trust in the Lord Jesus.

The mission of the church is still the same as it was nearly six decades ago.... 

to be a fellowship of believers in the Lord Jesus through serving each

follower and to work together in sharing His love in at least two ways:

1.)  telling all people of the saving grace of Jesus, and

2.)  backing it up with the visible loving actions of God 



It's often been said, When two or three Baptists are gathered

together there will be 5 to 6 different opinions.

Ash Avenue Baptist Church looks to

the Holy Bible as God's perfect word. 

Therefore, we don't hold to any creed. 

However, we do look to the

Baptist Faith and Message 1963 (1998)

as a reference to understanding scripture.
