About

Welcome

We are so glad you're here

The Gethsemane Baptist Church is located in the outer urban area of Newport News, VA. While the church is Baptist in denomination, it is not a traditional Baptist Church in worship, style, and ministry offerings.  The Church holds to the Baptist organizational structure and beliefs, as those structures are in line with the Holy Bible. The structure of the church is congregational, which emphasizes the priesthood of all believers. Gethsemane is a church where you can grow spiritually, as an individual or with family and friends. It is a church where you will find freedom of worship and experience the presence of God. The Church welcomes all ages and ethnicities.
