Our name comes from Matthew 5, a portion of the Sermon on the Mount, known as “The Beatitudes”.
“Beatitudes” comes from Latin and means “the blessing of God”. So we state that we are the Church of the Beatitudes...living blessed.
We Are Living Blessed. The Church of the Beatitudes was founded on Easter Sunday 1962 by a group of northern Baptists. Historically the congregation has been affiliated with the progressive liberal American Baptist Churches USA. In recent years the congregation has found further relationship with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and the alliance of baptists. Both denominational affiliations affirm the four freedoms that we hold dear:
1. Bible Freedom
2. Soul Freedom
3. Church Freedom
4. Religious Freedom
We are a welcoming, affirming, diverse, progressive,
non-judgmental community of faith.
