Serving God and the Community Since 1774 Blackwater Baptist Church is a small country church in the rural southern part of Virginia Beach. We think of ourselves as the small church with a big heart because we are all about Jesus! Our small congregation of wonderful people love God and have an active relationship with Jesus. Together we're learning how to live the new life which Christ has called us to.
If you are looking for a new church home with a large dose of Country this is the place! Come as you are - no frills, no fronts; just be yourself and you'll fit in just fine. There is always a place for you in this special church family. No matter who you are or what your situation, we invite you to visit BBC and discover how Jesus is being lifted up in this church and in our lives.
Please contact us anytime and let us know how we can serve you! We hope to see you soon and may God bless you.
