Old Cambridge Baptist Church is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts three blocks south-east of the redline Harvard Square T-Stop. We are a progressive and inclusive Christian community in the American Baptist tradition that seeks to answer God's call to hold fast to love and justice for all the earth and its peoples.
OCBC has been a welcoming and affirming church since 1983. We invite people from all backgrounds and walks of life to worship with us on Sunday mornings and in our daily lives.
We are a congregation of great diversity in economic means, racial and sexual identity, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. We maintain traditions of strong preaching, disciplined prayer, inspiring music, and a ministry of the laity which enables us to support each other in our spiritual journeys and to enact our individual and collective values in the wider world. We have a long tradition of honoring and empowering the gifts of women in our pastoral and congregational leadership.
