WE are Springfield

Listen to what God is saying through our prophet.
Leading the people of God to a culture of WORSHIP and EVANGELISM.


The Springfield Baptist Church is a Christ-centered congregation moving forward to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We will give service to all people, leading them to a closer personal relationship with Christ.


In the 21st Century Springfield Baptist Church will provide leadership to advance the spiritual development of its members and lead unsaved/un-churched souls to Christ through outreach ministries.
