About South Main Baptist Church

Fresh faith. Vintage church. South Main Baptist has a legacy of diversity going back more than a century, and a passion for service that extends across the seven counties of the Houston metro area and beyond. We are a vibrant, multigenerational family of faith that comes together for traditional worship every Sunday, and then seeks to carry the Grace we've experienced out into the world in all aspects of our lives. As a congregation, we strive to be inclusive, sharing the love of Jesus Christ and God’s abounding Grace with all, and supporting one another as we journey together along life’s path. We also value questions, realizing that doubt is part of faith, and believing that church should be the safest place to ask real, difficult questions about life and to grapple with the answers.

Our History

South Main has been a part of the fabric of the community here in Houston for more than 110 years. Located between downtown and the Texas Medical Center, South Main’s history intertwines closely with the development and growth of Midtown. The church’s congregation has been active in missions and ministries locally and abroad throughout its history and is known for its progressive mindset regarding issues such as civil rights and women in ministry.

Weddings at South Main

At South Main Baptist Church, we celebrate the covenant and the beautiful journey that you are beginning together. We believe that the union of husband and wife was established by God in creation and intended by God for your mutual joy, and for help and comfort in prosperity and adversity. Therefore we want to plan and build your marriage with as much love and care as we plan and celebrate your wedding.

Our Facilities

South Main Baptist Church is located at 4100 Main Street in Houston. Our campus sits at the corner of Main Street and Richmond Avenue, in the heart of Midtown. Halfway between downtown and the Texas Medical Center, South Main is a beautiful oasis in the bustling, cosmopolitan city of Houston.

Midtown Midweek


Midtown Midweek is South Main's Wednesday night weekly program that includes Fellowship Supper in our Turner Fellowship Hall, music programs across our Family Ministry, several kinds of Adult Discipleship offerings, and adult music opportunities.

Midtown Midweek resumes in August!

“Worship, discover, share” is South Main’s roadmap for Christian discipleship. Each week, we endeavor to worship God, discover God’s Word, and share with each other and those in need, as we seek balance, direction, and a sacred rhythm for our lives.

We're Right Here.
