867 Congress Street, now used for our mission
Port City Baptist was started by the Jones family and 1 visitor in July of 2009. After hopping from one rented space to another until January 2013, God literally gave us a building on the corner of Congress and Weymouth! We were only 15 people with no money. God was showing us that this was His church and that He was going to provide. In November 2020, we took another step of faith by starting a downtown mission and relocating the church worship services to 413 Broadway, South Portland to provide more opportunity for growth.
We want people to know the blessing of knowing Christ as Saviour and how He can transform lives, so we are actively spreading the Good News of the Gospel and inviting people to church. God has the ability to mend broken lives, save families, and bring joy and meaning to life.
Our sole authority is the Word of God and we teach and preach from the King James Bible. As far as our music is concerned, we follow Ephesians 5:19 which instructs us to sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Our music can be both old and new, lively and thoughtful. We don't just stick to tradition but you won't find any strobe lights or fog machines either!
We are currently a small church with a big heart that desires to keep a family atmosphere no matter how large God allows us to grow. We take the Bible seriously, and love people. So, we hope you will prayerfully consider making Port City your church home!
