Baptist, American

Old Cambridge Baptist Church is an American Baptist faith community inclusive of people from many religious perspectives and experiences. From those who identify as Christian, to seekers of truth, to agnostics who find the message and example of Jesus a compelling one to follow—all are welcome here. Since 1983, we have celebrated the gift of LGBTQ lives and all that they add to the rich tapestry of the congregation's life together, honoring the gifts of LGBTQ people in every facet of church life. As a progressive, inclusive congregation, we seek to answer God's call to hold fast to love and justice for the earth and all its people. Through our common life of prayer, worship, spiritual formation, and the arts, we strive to follow the example of Jesus and to work, through active nonviolence, for social, racial, LGBTQ, economic and ecological justice, and for peace. On Sunday mornings at OCBC, we join for services of worship that include music by instrumentalists and the OCBC choir, thought-provoking sermons, and shared community prayers. We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of each month. Our Sunday worship services begin at 10:30 a.m. We are located at 1151 Massachusetts Avenue and 400 Harvard Street (our building spans the block) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The church building is just five blocks from the Harvard Street T-Station. Free parking is available for the duration of the service.
