What kind of church is this, anyway?
First of all, WE BELIEVE
that God is love.
Like most Protestant churches, we affirm the “priesthood of all believers.” More than most, we trust you to think for yourself – in effect, to be your own priest. As such, you’re free to talk directly to God, read scripture, and decide for yourself what it all means. And, you are responsible to God alone for your behavior and beliefs. But, good news! You’ll never have to actually be alone. At Augusta Heights, we promise to love you as God has loved us.

Frequently Asked Questions
Where should I park? How do I get in the building?
What do I do with my kids?
What are the worship services like?
Is Augusta Heights one of those contemporary warehouse churches?
Not so much. If you grew up Baptist, AHBC will feel pretty normal to you — except for the non-judgmental acceptance of just about everyone.
What’s the dress code?
What dress code? Be yourself. Wear what makes you feel good. Just so you know, neckties and high heels are more the exception than the rule — and are rarely worn together!
Do you make visitors stand up?
Nope. You don’t have to sing either, unless the Spirit moves you. But don’t be surprised if people smile at you or try to chat you up. We can’t help ourselves.
How does Augusta Heights observe the Lord’s Supper?
We practice open table Communion, which simply means that all are welcome to partake. The way we see it, it’s Christ’s table, not ours. Who are we to withhold the Bread of Life?
What's the deal with baptism?
At Augusta Heights, we happily dunk new members who make a profession of faith. (You’ll see the baptistry behind the choir loft.) But we also recognize the baptisms of other traditions. So if you’ve been sprinkled, poured, dunked, or otherwise baptized, you’re welcome to join AHBC – and you don't have to be baptized "our way.” How wet you get is entirely up to you.
Who’s in charge?
Good question. Like all Baptist churches, Augusta Heights is independent, self-supporting, and governed by its own members, who vote on all important decisions. (Like who will serve as deacons, for instance.) Our nine-member board of deacons oversees staff, finances, and other church matters.
