G.O.'s Welcome Message

You are welcome to the Upper Room Baptist Church website. I am glad you have chosen to spend a few moments looking around, discovering our family church.

Our hope is that all people will feel loved and welcomed at Upper Room Baptist Church. And once here, we pray that people will meet God and as a result of meeting God, give their lives to Jesus Christ. Come as you are. Check us out, but more importantly, seek the truth of God that can only be known when one knows Jesus.

While you are browsing our website, you will learn about our programs and get a glimpse of who we are. To fully understand us, come to a worship service or to a small group and feel the up-close, in-person fellowship that comes when people share time together with the Holy Spirit present. Enjoy the website, then come. We’d love to meet you and know you.
