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 Brown Paper Tickets, and 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.
