I’m Not a Baptist… Can I Still Attend?
Ideal Missionary Baptist Church is a church where everyone is welcomed. It is our desire to be a
church for everyone that has a desire to have a relationship with God. You do not have to come from
a Baptist background, or hold to any particular religious affiliation to attend services here. We are
convinced that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and it is sufficient to point any sincere
person to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. If you have a desire to know, have a relationship with
God and experience His best in your life, we invite you to join us on the journey. If there is any
way that we can be of help to you please feel free to let us know.
