About Stevendale

Stevendale Baptist Church  meets on the corner of Stevendale Road and Old Hammond Highway on the eastern edge of Baton Rouge and East Baton Rouge Parish. Map The five church buildings were devastatingly flooded in 2016, and are under restoration through the help of many volunteers. Our sanctuary and one education building have been fully restored beautifully. 

Bro. Stephen Young has been the pastor since October of 2012. Before coming to Stevendale, he spent more than a decade as a missionary in Brazil. He describes his preaching style as expository Bible storying.

Bro. Michael Peeler is the minister of music. Our worship style is blends traditional hymns with contemporary praise and worship.

Bro. Hardie Midkiff is our Family Ministries Pastor. His focus is to impact the world via growing relationships with Jesus; one family at a time.

A Simple Structure of committees and ministry teams means communication and cooperation are strong points of Stevendale Baptist Church. If you are looking for a church family, we invite you to join us as we follow Jesus.

Organized in 1956, Stevendale is a Southern Baptist Church and is affiliated with the local Baptist Association of Greater Baton RougeThe Louisiana Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention. 

In Doctrine, 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.
