Welcome to University Baptist Church (UBC). Located adjacent to  the University of Minnesota, we are linked with the University community and beyond to the greater Twin Cities. An intentional focus on inclusiveness, peacemaking, and social justice guides our worship and ministries.  Fine music is integral to our worship, with varied ensembles for self-expression.

Our affiliations are not only American Baptist but across denominations.... all are welcome here.  We are intrigued and captured by the challenge and the whimsy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, while seeking to live out this Good News in our individual and collective lives.

Our mission at UBC is:

  • to be a loving and inclusive community
  • seeking faith, joy and action
  • nurtured by the biblical traditions, the teachings of Christ, and God's continuing revelation.

Our congregation includes all ages from varied walks of life.  These multi-talented, dedicated participants greatly enhance the life and ministries of UBC.  Please browse through the website to learn more about UBC, our ministries, programs and educational opportunities.  Better yet, come and visit us in person.  We'd like to get to know you.

Peter Mayer Earth Day Concert PDF Print E-mail

Earth Day Concert at UBC: Singer/Songwriter Peter Mayer will perform a concert at University Baptist Church on Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22 at 7:30 pm in the newly dedicated Adele Fadden Assembly Room. Tickets are $20, available at the door. University Baptist Church is located at 1219 University Ave SE, Minneapolis MN 55414.

Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet—songs about interconnectedness and the human journey; about the beauty and the mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of "folk", and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.

April 2014 Mission Offering PDF Print E-mail

April Mission Offering: Alliance of Baptists and the Tai Shigaki Mission Travel Fund

Although our primary denominational affiliation is with the American Baptist Churches, USA, we at UBC are also affiliated with the Alliance of Baptists, a grouping of progressive Baptist churches and individuals who describe themselves as a "vibrant movement of people, faith communities and ministry partners who are deeply passionate about ecumenism, partnership in mission, relentless hospitality and social justice." Founded in 1987, and now with over 3,000 individual members, 150 endorsed chaplains and pastoral counselors, 33 local and global ministry partners, 2 theology schools and 140 partner congregations, the Alliance is avowedly welcoming and affirming of all people. Basic support of our affiliation with the Alliance is included in UBC's annual budget. However we also make a separate contribution to the mission outreach efforts of the Alliance, which they call their "Bridges of Hope", through this special mission offering. Most of their outreach is through ministry partners, including more than 30 organizations in the USA and abroad, from the Baptist Convention of Zimbabwe and Al Ahkawayn University of Morocco to the Seeds of Hope Publishers in Waco, TX and the Rauschenbusch Urban Ministries of New York City. Let's help support the mission outreach of the Alliance of Baptists. Envelopes are provided in the pew racks.

This month we are also seeking support for the air fare and other travel expenses of the team which will be visiting us in September from our sister church in Leon, Nicaragua, expenses which are met from the Tai Shigaki Mission Travel Fund. We look forward to that visit and to the continued nurturing of our relationship with the members of the Second Baptist Church of Leon and the school which they run. Please be generous in your support of the travel costs for this visit and our relationship. Use the envelopes in the pew racks.
