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
as a reference to understanding scripture.

Our church is autonomous, which means we govern ourselves
and are not subject to any other church body.
However, we are subject to the Head of the body,
the Lord Jesus.
In order to fulfill the work of the Lord, we believe
cooperation with other believers is
vital and biblical.
WE CAN DO MORE TOGETHER THAN
WE CAN DO ALONE!
