- About Us
- Spiritual Growth
Our service of worship honors the two thousand-year-old traditions of the church, yet also embraces the progressive theology and open-mindedness reflected in our Church Covenant. We seek to reach the mind and heart of every person through sacred music of many different genres; meaningful, relevant preaching; and carefully planned liturgy. We celebrate the “freedom of the pulpit” and want worship to be, as Jesus put it, “a house of prayer for all people.”

Sermon TalkBack in Heaton Hall (Summer only)
TalkBack takes the place of Sunday school during the summer months. After the 10:00 a.m. service in the sanctuary, everyone is welcome to “talk back” to the preacher about the sermon, ask questions, or share an experience connected to the topic. This is an excellent way to participate in and hear the diverse voices that make up our community.
Traditionally Myers Park Baptist Church has honored the flow of The Christian Year as our basis for planning services, including Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Eastertide and Pentecost. We use symbolic colors on the altar, the pulpit, the lectern and ministers’ stoles to remind us of the time of year we are celebrating.
We worship in a beautiful sanctuary, the architecture of which makes its own profound theological statement. Even so, we constantly are reminded of the tension between the beauty of the place in which we worship and the ever-present call to respond to the poor and those in need in the world.
