Priesthood of Believers
At Broadneck Baptist, we recognize that while pastoral leadership is important, everyone in the community of faith has the power and responsibility to explore, grow, and nuture as part of the priesthood of believers. We all work together to show Christ's love and help bring God's kingdom into people's everyday lives.

Is there such a thing as a “progressive Baptist”? At Broadneck, we believe there is. We are a community that honors asking questions, serving our neighbors, seeking justice, celebrating diversity, and welcoming all of God’s children. We seek to be a place where all people are embraced for their unique gifts and invited to participate fully in all areas of ministry. At the same time, we honor traditional Baptist principals such as the autonomy of the local church, the priesthood of the believer, the separation of Church and State, believer’s baptism, and congregational leadership.
