Make note, we are not a typical Baptist congregation!

At Freemason Street:

– Women and men serve equally in places of leadership.

– Worship uplifts and encourages through majestic music, thoughtful sermons, reflective prayer and a beautiful setting.

– Bible study seeks to grasp how God’s ancient words apply to our daily living. We are not afraid to wrestle with the hard questions of faith. We promote caring relationships and thoughtful dialog.

– We believe we are called beyond our congregational walls to mend souls with a compassionate touch while encouraging justice for all humanity. Because we affirm the great historical Baptist idea of the priesthood of all believers – that all souls are equal before our Creator – we encourage everyone to a personal encounter with the loving and compassionate God revealed in Christ which leads to lives transformed for service to others.

So, Freemason Street Baptist Church invites you to experience our ministry through the quality worship of God, small group Bible Studies, community service and vibrant fellowship activities. Founded in 1848, we are a vital, living church in the heart of downtown Norfolk.
