Located adjacent to the University of Minnesota, we are linked with the University community and beyond to the greater Twin Cities. An intentional focus on inclusiveness, peacemaking, and social justice guides our worship and ministries. Fine music is integral to our worship, with varied ensembles for self-expression.
Our affiliations are not only American Baptist but across denominations.... all are welcome here. We are intrigued and captured by the challenge and the whimsy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, while seeking to live out this Good News in our individual and collective lives.
Our congregation includes all ages from varied walks of life. These multi-talented, dedicated participants greatly enhance the life and ministries of UBC.
From the beginning, UBC has been made up of people committed to justice, first ending slavery, then gaining women's suffrage, ensuring intellectual and academic freedom--in the 1920s, the freedom to teach the theory of evolution, civil rights, human rights, peace and nonviolence, environmental justice, and equal rights for our gay,lesbian, bisexual, and transgender brothers and sisters. For many of us, working for the reign of God on earth is a spiritual act, a form of worship and of prayer.
