About Our Neighborhood

South Main Baptist Church is located in the heart of Midtown Houston, a vibrant, mixed-use community with a diverse population situated directly between Downtown Houston and the Texas Medical Center—the two largest employment centers in the Houston area. Midtown is also home to innovative collaborations of visual and performing arts such as the Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston (MATCH).

Since the 1990s, urban renewal efforts have led Midtown Houston to be a highly desirable and thriving area as both new construction and restoration of older sites continue to enhance the neighborhood. With the recent addition of the Ion building, the centerpiece of Houston’s new innovation corridor under construction near the church campus, South Main Baptist Church is a thriving place to be.
