Founded in 1922 in the historic Elizabeth neighborhood of Charlotte, St. John’s Baptist is a servant church that focuses on the love, kindness, and acceptance of the living God in action.  We believe that action is focused on you, and many like you, who have come to investigate further.

Please use the links below to explore our website and learn more about our doctrine, our history, and our people!  However, the only way to truly learn about our church family is to join us for Sunday Worship at 10:30 or for another church event.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
