Welcome To Patterson Avenue Baptist

Welcome to the website for the Patterson Avenue Baptist Church. We aim to make this site a fun, informative, and interactive place where people can become more aware of God’s amazing love and wonderful grace.

Here at Patterson Avenue Baptist, we believe and teach that salvation does not come by our works, but has been completely accomplished through the Divine Grace offered us through Jesus Christ. Through our worship, study, and various ministries, our passion is to invite all people to join us in expressing trust in the sufficiency of God’s Grace.

A Word From Our Pastor

Cyberspace is a fun place to be, but it should never be a substitute for the joy of meeting and greeting in a more personal fashion. That is why I am writing this personal note of invitation. I am Bill Nieporte, pastor of this congregation for the last six years.  We are a young congregation with a very long and rich history. In1989, two historic Richmond churches (Calvary Baptist and Park View Baptist) united to become a new congregation. We are proud of the heritage we share as descendants of these two great congregations, but we are even more excited about our future.

We believe that God has placed us in Richmond in order to declare the Good News of God’s love for everyone we meet. Though we are blessed with a wonderful facility in which we gather for worship, fellowship, and study, we do not believe that CHURCH is merely bricks and mortar. Rather we understand CHURCH to be our expression and extension of God’s love to our community and world. CHURCH does not just happen in our building. It happens in the workplace, the neighborhood park, the school yard, and the grocery line. Basically, it happens wherever God actively loves people – and that is everywhere. - Pastor Bill Nieporte
