200 N Howe Street, Southport, NC
Southport Baptist Church is a group of people trying to live as disciples of Jesus in the 21st century. Each of us is “learning to live as Jesus would live if He were me”. God’s Word informs us that life change is a process and we’re committed to that process as well as each other. We’re just a bunch of imperfect people on a journey following a perfect Savior. Southport Baptist Church was founded in 1871 as citizens from the local town, guided by John L. Wescott, began to recognize the need for a local place of worship. Many of the original members had attended Bethel Baptist Church which was several miles outside of town.
