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.
And our building is full of Dance! In 2000, the church forged a long term partnership with the José Mateo Ballet Theatre for their rehearsal, performance, teaching and administration uses. The church Sanctuary is transformed into a dance studio and performance space during the week, and converts to a worship space for the congregation on Sunday mornings. The JMBT truly enables prayer-in-motion to God at all hours of the day and night, expressing in their school, performances, and community outreach, their commitments to help create a more just and joyful world through dance.
