Welcome to Lake Avenue Baptist Church, a unique American Baptist Church, that responds to Jesus’ call by practicing Gospel hospitality, Christian mission, and ministries of care, education, inspiration, and reconciliation.


Several hundred people find a spiritual home here.  We speak English and French, Congolese and Burmese, Chin and Karen, Kachin and Karenni. Here and there you will also hear Spanish or German.  With African-Americans as well as Africans, and Latino-Americans as well as Euro-Americans, our multicultural banquets, musical offerings, and dances are spectacular!


145 years ago our congregation began as a mission to our neighborhood and we continue today to be a “mission” church!


Come and experience for yourself a multicultural worship of God, love of neighbor, and reconciling outreach to the world of a new millennium.
