We would like to welcome you to Altoona Regular Baptist Church.

The purpose of Altoona Regular Baptist Church is to promote the worship of God by the preaching of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ; to promote the propagation of the gospel through Baptist missionaries at home and abroad; to have Sunday School and youth groups; to preserve Baptist doctrine, trusting that as a result sinners shall be saved and believers edified; to administer the ordinances of the New Testament; and to earnestly contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints.

We believe that, according to Hebrews 10:25, we are not to forsake the assembly of ourselves together and that, according to Ephesians 4:16-17, the purpose of organized worship is to equip believers to become better disciples and decision makers. Therefore, every member of our church is expected to use their talents and abilities to further the spreading of the Word of God and to encourage the saints.

We understand that your little ones are a gift from God, and we will treat them as such. Each of our volunteers who work with children is required to go through a child safety training course. We provide nursery for infants up to the age of two during Sunday worship services, Sunday School, and Wednesday evening programs. If you should choose to leave your child in our nursery, you will be asked to communicate requests and instructions to our staff in order to provide a quality and safe experience for your child.
