American Baptist Churches, USA

Exton Community Baptist Church is an American Baptist congregation. Our denomination began in Providence, Rhode Island when Roger Williams established the First Baptist Church in America. During the Civil War we were called "Northern Baptists" because we opposed slavery and fought with the North. Our churches began ordaining women in the late 1800's and walked alongside the oppressed during the Civil Rights Movement. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is probably the most famous Baptist we can claim. As a denomination, we're known as one of the Seven Sisters of American Mainline Protestantism, but we also have evangelical tendencies. We're known for democratic governance, a commitment to missions, and wide range of theological orientations across our congregations.

Exton-Lionville Ministerium

Our church is proud to support our local Ministerium. We believe that we all benefit from working with our neighbors, particularly those who share a love for Christ. The Ministerium is presently composed of Baptists, Roman Catholics, Methodists, Lutherans, and Congregationalists from Exton, Lionville, and Chester Springs. Our clergy and lay leaders meet once-a-month to pray, discuss business, and find ways to work together, rather than apart. Every year we host a joint Thanksgiving, a service for Christian Unity, and one or two workshops.
