Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church extends a hearty welcome to you. We hope you find our new website a convenient place to explore our unique history and to experience His Story. It is this life-changing and world-changing message upon which we build our church and our lives.

When all is said and done, all that we aspire to BE and all we attempt to DO, is intended to glorify Jesus through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit to the glory of God the Father. Jesus really is our MAIN ATTRACTION. He is the reason we are!

Congregational Health and Wellness Ministry

You are invited to join the Health and Wellness Ministry @ Sixteenth Street for our weekly “Wellness Walk” every Saturday morning at 6:30 a.m. Research by Dr. James O. Hill of the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center shows that adding 2,000 more steps to regular daily activities prevents weight gain. Previous studies have reported that moving 6,000 steps a day significantly reduces the risk of death, while 8,000-10,000 steps a day promote weight loss. For more information please contact the church office or see Ms. Janice Calhoun White after service.
