A Word from Our Pastor


Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church extends a hearty welcome to you. We hope you find our new website a convenient place to explore our unique history and to experience His Story. It is this life-changing and world-changing message upon which we build our church and our lives.

When all is said and done, all that we aspire to BE and all we attempt to DO, is intended to glorify Jesus through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit to the glory of God the Father. Jesus really is our MAIN ATTRACTION. He is the reason we are!

Adopt a Family

As the Holidays draw near, many families begin preparing for a big dinner, filled with old family traditions. However; for many the holidays mean a struggle simply to provide a Thanksgiving turkey for their children. At 16th Street, Thanksgiving remains a time to help those struggling families prepare for their own holiday traditions with a Thanksgiving food basket. You can adopt a family for $25.00 and be a blessing to a family in need. Also, contributions of canned and non-perishable foods are needed: cranberry sauce, canned corn, sweet potatoes, green beans, jiffy mix/corn muffin mix and 2 lbs. sugar. Our goal is to distribute 100 baskets! We can reach this goal with your help!  If you are a member and know of a family please submit their names to the church office. Baskets are limited. The Thanksgiving Basket will be distributed on Saturday, November 21, 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
