In June of 1966, about seventy believers in Christ, organized by Rev. Clarence Jones, came together to grow spiritually. Since they had no permanent place of worship, they participated in worship services at Galatians M.B. Church, under the leadership of Pastor John Mosley. By the first Sunday in July, the group of believers had secured a permanent place of worship, located at 4218-4220 West Roosevelt Road. The group of believers unanimously voted on the name “United,” and on July 24, 1966 the church home was officially named United Baptist Church.

Over the next few years, the church saw steady growth. On April 28, 1974, Rev. Wilson Daniels became the pastor. Under his leadership the church not only grew numerically, but spiritually and financially. In the early years of Rev. Daniels tenure, the church was able to eliminate its mortgage debt, thus, allowing the church to look ahead to newer projects. An educational wing was added to the building for the further development of its members and ministries. Many surrounding lots were purchased which allowed the church to build houses that were affordable for people in the community.

In February of 1999, United entered into its current edifice, which was an additional building added to what it is now named after United’s founding pastor, Rev. Clarence Jones. The newly constructed edifice holds the current sanctuary, offices, and the fellowship hall. After faithfully leading the United Baptist Church for 44 Years, Rev. Daniels retired from his labor at the end of 2018. He was rightfully named Pastor Emeritus of United.


We believe God exists eternally and equally in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

(Matthew 28:19; Colossians 2:9)

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He rose from the dead on the third day to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended into heaven and will return to earth to reign as King.

(Matthew 1:22-23; Romans 1:3-4; Corinthians 15:3-4; Hebrews 4:14-15)

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He was frequently spoken of and promised by Jesus. He lives in every Christian from the moment of authentic conversion to indwell, infill, enlighten, empower, lead, guide, correct, convict, and comfort their lives.

(John 14:16-18; Ephesians 5:18; Romans 8:15; Acts 1:8)

We believe that the Bible is inspired by God. It is a collection of writings by human authors who were under the authority of the Holy Spirit. It is to be interpreted according to its context and purpose, and when “rightly divided” it is the ultimate authority for our faith, our lives, and the practices of our church.

(Matthew 22:29; 2 Timothy 3:15-16; Romans 15:4 )

Salvation is God’s free gift to humanity but as is the case with any gift, it must be received. The way we receive this gift is only by trusting in the death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ.

(1 Timothy 2:5; Romans 10:9)

We believe that tithes, offerings, and alms are God’s financial plan for the support of His work.

(Malachi 3:10; Matthew 23:23; 2 Corinthians 9:6-12)

We believe that discipline is a gift from Christ given to His church to promote its health and productivity.

(Matthew 18:15-20; Proverbs 19:18)


We believe that engagement precedes impact. This belief is the foundation of our ministry. By engaging with and serving our community in meaningful ways, we create opportunities for an eternal impact to be made. Do you want to be part of the unification of our city?


You have a gift. God wants to use you to further His purpose in reaching the world. Through your service, gifts, and partnership, your life and the lives of others will be changed forever. Together we can do great things, but we need you, because we do better together. Unite with us today and lets impact the world.


Thank you in advance for your generous gifts. We give back to God because He has given so much to us. We simply give back a portion of the blessings He has blessed us with. We could not do the things we do if it was not for your sacrificial giving. Partner with God in what He is doing through His church.
