A Word from Our Pastor


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!

Arthur Price, Jr., Pastor
