About Stevendale

Let me invite you to take a moment to learn a little more about our church.

Hi there. My name is Stephen. I am the pastor here at Stevendale. I have been in ministry for 25 years. My family and I answered the call to come here a little over 7 years ago, after serving 11 as a missionaries in Minas Gerias, Brazil. 

Sometimes, I say I have been pastor of Stevendale for 3 1/2 years twice, because of the great flood in August of 2016. That event brought most of our ministries to a screeching halt and put us on a rebuilding track for both our church campus and most of our member's homes. 

Today, we are a smaller church doing big things. We have repaired and modernized 4 of our 5 buildings. Of course there still is much left to do, but we have re-established several of our ministries and begun some new ones.

Our vision is to become a church whose earthly gathering boldly reflects the future heavenly picture of Revelation 7:9 "I saw a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb."

Perhaps God is calling you to be a part of this family of faith. We invite you to join us as we follow Jesus!

Stevendale is a Southern Baptist Church that was organized in 1956 as a mission of (Green Oaks Baptist Church. Green Oaks renamed itself Florida Boulevard Baptist Church, and is now Renew Church.) We are an active member of the Baptist Association of Greater Baton RougeThe Louisiana Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention.  

Stevendale Baptist Church affirms the Baptist Faith & Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention. Further, because culturally and politically, there is confusion and disagreement on the issue of marriage, we offer the following statement of belief: 

We believe that marriage is exclusively the union of a man and a woman. Adam and Eve were created in God’s image, equal before God as persons and distinct in their manhood and womanhood. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and basic structure of human society. God's plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female.
