Welcome to Middle Street Baptist Church! We’re a family of women, men, and children in and around Portsmouth, New Hampshire who are on a mission to know God and figure out what that means in our day-to-day lives.

We believe that the church is not a weekly meeting, an institution, or even a building; it’s a group of people committed to following Jesus with our whole lives. We’re a family, not a business. We’re about our people, not our steeple. However you want to put it, we hope you’ll find that we’re a safe place to worship, learn, ask questions, think deeply, and be challenged to seek truth.

Whether you’re a follower of Jesus, a spiritual explorer, or an outright skeptic (and we expect that people from all three groups are among us), you’re welcome to join our Sunday morning gatherings. During our services we aspire to encounter God through the Scriptures, collective singing, contemplative music, prayer, and some occasional, less-predictable sources. And of course, if there’s any way we can help you on your journey, please get in touch.
