Providence Baptist Church
Providence Baptist Church began in 1954 with a group of young families who had moved to the Cotswold community of south Charlotte. At that time, Randolph Road was only two lanes, but houses were being built and those first families saw the potential for the development of this area of Charlotte and the need for a church. As the community grew rapidly, Providence grew into one of the large churches in Charlotte. In a matter of just a few years, extensive ministries and programs were initiated to minister to the families in this area of Charlotte. And the reach of Providence extended to other areas of Mecklenburg County.
From its beginning, Providence has been an inclusive fellowship. Persons from all walks of life identified with the church. Social ministries and mission outreach was at the fore-front of the church's vision. During this time, more than twenty-one acres were acquired in increments in order to develop a campus that could encourage and accommodate multi-faceted ministries.
Providence Baptist Church is a diverse fellowship. A few charter members can be seen every Sunday, and the preschool class rooms are full to capacity. We are building more space for all ages. Young adults, teenagers, children, and senior adults are the Providence family. We have individuals who have been members for fifty years and persons who have recently joined our congregation.
Our ministries are as diverse as our congregation. We have ministries to children in our congregation and community, and ministries to children who may never attend our church. Members of the church may travel to a local school for special programs or to communities in other states to reach out to those who need a special touch. Worship, Missions, and Fellowship are the three basic tenents of our ministry.
We invite and encourage you to be a part of this fellowship. In that way, our fellowship will become your fellowship.
