History of The Abyssinian Baptist Church

Our history conveys a rich legacy of leadership and faith, our activist commitment to serving the needs of the local and global community and a dedication to our mission of winning more souls for Christ.

AbyssinianWEST Moves Forward


Abyssinian broke ground on the AbyssinianWEST project. Following the initial appeal of a “3.0 in 24 Mo” funding campaign, more than 40% of the church’s membership responded to the plea to make a supporting pledge to raise $3 million in 24 months to begin funding construction of the new $12 million, five-story education and community center.

The center is expected to be completed in late 2017.
