About Sharon Baptist Church
Come and worship with us our Lord and Savior, the Christ, Jesus.
Originally the West Smithfield Baptist Chapel, we have been actively serving the community in Christ's spirit since 1958. We officially became Sharon Baptist Church in 1961. For
more than fifty years, our diverse congregation has remained committed to its common values of love, community, hospitality and compassion as we bear witness to the transforming experience of a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
We seek to be an inclusive Christian community and receive into membership anyone who publicly professes faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and has followed Jesus' command to be baptized as a testimony of that faith.
As a church with Baptist roots, we remain committed to the distinctive freedoms that formed us.
Though committed to our own Baptist tradition, we recognize and value the diverse gifts that other communities of faith bring as well. Because of this we strive to be an ecumenical congregation, warmly welcoming those who come from non-Baptist backgrounds, too. We hope that in the course of knowing us, worshipping with us, serving alongside us, and supporting one another, you'll find how God is doing new work in your life - and new work in our world through you.
