Welcome to Western Avenue Baptist Church!

Welcome! Since our founding in 1916, Western Avenue Baptist Church has served as a voice in the community located between Central Square, Harvard, and MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Western Avenue is a vibrant and multicultural church that welcomes people from all walks of life. We deeply value a casual and traditional worship environment in our appetite for dynamic preaching and worship, which has made our sanctuary atmosphere unmistakably diverse and intergenerational. We are driven by our founders' call to cultivate worship at the heart of Christ and the beloved community. We are a church committed to authentic worship, where people can encounter no uncertain change and spiritual empowerment.

There are a number of exciting things happening at Western Avenue, and we invite you to hear a welcome message from our pastor HERE.

We pray that you join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 10am or Wednesday nights at 7pm as we embark on this Christian journey together.

God Bless,

Rev. Jeremy D. Battle

Senior Pastor


Children's Ministry


Our children's ministry is the fastest growing area within our church. We have over 15 dedicated mothers, grandmothers, and daycare professionals in our church who volunteer to craft creative lesson plans and activities for our children every week during our Sunday morning worship service. Our children also participate in speeches, singing, and other performances throughout the Christian season.

Our church covenant calls us to pray for one another, and each week during morning worship and Wednesday evenings we invite anyone to receive prayer. We strive to create a fertile praying atmosphere that invites Godly transformation. 

Can we pray for you in anyway?                    Please join us Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings for prayer, or contact us, and we will pray with you.
