Southern Baptist Convention

Germantown Baptist Church is a Family -- a place you can call "HOME." You are greeted by people who are really happy to see you. This is a family where all are included. It is a diverse body of believers -- all ages, all races, all loving people!! Our blend of traditional hymns, gospel and contemporary songs, dramas, relevant preaching, and people looking for a friend, makes it easy to fit in. Our mission is to develop passionate disciples of Jesus Christ, with a heart for God, and the zeal to reach out to others to bring the Good News to them. The Good News? God Loves You and GBC Does Too!!
