Welcome to Lower Providence Baptist Church! My name is Pastor CG Coats and am excited to meet you. As I describe LPBC to newcomers, I gravitate towards words such as “community,” “friends,” and “family.” We are a group of people committed to following Jesus Christ. This means that we worship Him with vigor and joy. We encourage prayer, both in church and throughout our everyday lives. We love people outside of the church through generosity, invitation, and compassion. Our hope is that all people will feel loved and welcomed at LPBC. And once here, we pray that people will meet God where they are at and, as a result, give their lives to Jesus Christ. We want this for you. Come as you are. Check us out on a Sunday morning sometime but, more importantly, seek the truth of God that can only be known when one knows Jesus.

Lower Providence Baptist Church dates back over 200 years. It originated back to the “Holy Experiment” of William Penn when Baptists from Wales settled in the township of Lower Providence.
The current stone church is the fourth building on the site, was built in 1877, and used materials from the third church.
