Southern Baptist Convention

Located in the fast growing community of Fredericksburg, Virginia, Goshen Baptist Church exists to glorify our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and to reach those people that do not have a personal relationship with God through the life-saving message of His Son, Jesus. We are also here to help those that are already Christians mature in their faith and walk with God. We make this our purpose as a church and accomplish our purpose of winning souls and helping souls mature in Christ by our mission of "Sharing His Love, His Word, His Way." We hope you will check out the rest of the information on our church, and we hope to see you soon!
