About Us

“A Church Determined to Live for Christ”

With more than 4,000 members and 70 ministries, Union Baptist Church is growing to meet the needs of all people.Under the leadership of Senior Pastor Dr. Sir Walter L. Mack, Jr., UBC focuses on dynamic worship, study, fellowship and evangelism.

We are a “prophe-charismatic” ministry. This phrase, coined by our pastor, combines the prophetic work of addressing racism, sexism, homelessness and politics with “Charismata” which is the Greek word for gifts of the spirit. Our programs break denominational and religious barriers, bringing together true worshippers.

We believe in ministering to everyone as we produce innovative programs to elevate and uplift the people of God.

Affirmation of Faith

We believe in God, the Father Almighty creator of heaven and earth.

We believe in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord;

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.

He descended to the dead. On the third day, he rose again.

He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Church universal, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Also, it is not uncommon for Union Baptist to build relationships with all denominations that are seeing to fulfill the will of God in their ministries.
