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!

Experience HIStory Through Our On-going Social Media Initiatives
16th Street has begun a social media campaign to promote the 16th Street Facebook page and Pastor Price's newly created Twitter page. These efforts are to get our members, visitors and friends to engage with our church through social media and to create an open invitation for visitors across the world to visit our church. If you are on Facebook or Twitter, please feel free to check-in BEFORE church begins or share your thoughts about the service when it is over.
If you'd like to help work on this campaign, please see Sis. Candie A. Price.
