Hampton Baptist Church welcomes you to our web site. Although we are the oldest Baptist church in Hampton, modern information technology offers us this opportunity to expand our ministry in our third century of service, both to the wider community and to our members.
Our church is located downtown in "Old Hampton" and has a long history of ministry to the people of the Virginia Peninsula. It was organized in 1791, during George Washington's first term, and the sanctuary in which we worship was built in 1883. We are inclusive in outlook and maintain affiliations with the Peninsula Baptist Association, the Baptist General Association of Virginia, and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
If you are new to this community and are looking for a new church home or are just visiting, we invite you to join us for one of our services. Our schedule of activities, a map showing our location, and an historical sketch are included for the benefit of both visitors and members. Also visit our monthly events page for information about up-coming activities, meetings, etc..
Thank you & Welcome to…
