Greetings from our Pastor Dr. Gary J. Payton, First Lady Christine Payton, and our entire church family!

We welcome you to the new website home of the St. James Free Baptist Church: a church that gives the opportunity for all people all over the world to glorify, praise, and worship our God and Saviour.  Here at our website, you will find information concerning St. James, its various ministries, and resources for the studying of the Word of God. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing! St. James is a warm and loving church, and we want you to feel comfortable and at liberty to call on us for anything you need. Feel free to browse through the various areas of our website and learn about our fellowship. 

We pray that visiting this website will allow you to recognize that it is a home for you to grow, to be enriched, and to gain hope and insight.  If you are considering visiting or relocating to our area, we would love to have you be our guest for our Sunday School and Morning Worship celebrations.  When you visit St. James, you will find (1) a caring congregation that will gladly welcome you, (2) preaching and teaching that is centered on the Word of God, (3) ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every person and age, and (4) a corporate outlet for truth-filled and moving praise and worship.  We are the church where love abides.

May God Bless You and Richly Dwell In You!
