Memorial Baptist Church, with an average attendance of 300-400, was founded in 1952. It is in the heart of Tulsa, the second largest city in Oklahoma. Tulsa has an ethnically and culturally diverse population. Approximately a quarter of a million people live within a five-mile radius of the Church.

The main Church building consists of a beautiful sanctuary, a fellowship hall, a choir suite, a nursery area, classrooms, and a children’s playground. The sanctuary was updated in 2007, and the nursery and classrooms were updated in 2004. The Church has also converted two houses into meeting places for the youth department. The Church maintains a mission home for visiting missionaries and has an activity center. The Church recently purchased adjacent property where we intend to build a family life center. The Church property is all debt-free.

Our Mission Statement reads: “To know Him, worship Him, obey Him, and make Him known.” Further information is available throughout our website.
