Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist church at 1197 University
Avenue, Fairbanks, Alaska 99709 was established in 1959. Our pastor is Gary Cox, who joined us in September 2000 with his wife,
and three sons.
Sunday Worship times: 9 a.m., 11 a.m.,
and 6 p.m.
What to Expect Sunday:
Our Sunday Services are at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 6 p.m. All
blend traditional elements and hymns with some more contemporary choruses.
Over the course of a month, you can expect to hear a mix of congregational
singing, choir, ensembles, trios, instrumentalists, and solos. There
is no rigid dress code, though evening services tend to be more informal.
Services last about one hour, and there is a Go FISH (gr 1-6) from 10 a.m.
to noon all but fifth Sundays. There is also Preschool Worship (age 4-K)
every Sunday in room 210. Bible Study for all ages begins at 10 a.m. The
church has a "cry room" equipped with closed circuit TV of the services,
as well as a nursery for birth through age 4 during all services. All
nursery workers (paid or volunteer) have passed background checks. In
the evening, during the 6 p.m. service, Mission Friends meet (for age 4-K).
The congregation itself is a mix of ethnicities from all
walks of life. While predominately "anglo," we have a Chinese Mission,
with outreaches to the
Philippines and Africa.
Church members include African-Americans, & Koreans, to name just a few.
We now have complete church information
