Dear Friends and Family Members of Village Parkway Baptist Church,
Even though Village Parkway has invested extra time and money to ensure the health and safety of every member who would attend our services, we cannot guarantee an exposure-free environment. We are requiring facemasks to be worn, and social distancing for in-person Worship and Sunday school.
The decision to limit in-person meetings is not based upon fear or a lack of faith, but on the available data provided by those who desire the health and safety of the populace. The Worship service will remain online as well as in person, the Bible studies, and Worship service will be available on Facebook live also.
Above all, stay faithful to the Lord, seek His face during this time, and find ways to honor God through the unique opportunities this pandemic provides. Never forget, you are not alone. We are here for you. We love you. We care about you and what you are going through. If we can help you in any way, or if you have questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to us.
With all the love we have in our hearts for you, our family,
The Staff and Covid Response Team of Village Parkway Baptist Church, April 2021

Dr. Steve Branson, our Pastor, delivers the message which is both challenging and relevant. back to top
What are your Sunday School classes?
Sunday Morning Bible Studay classes offer, for visitors and members alike, an opportunity to meet new people in a small-group setting and grow deeper in their faith. Classes are offered on Sunday mornings at 9:30am for children, youth, single and married adults of all ages.

Do you offer child care?
At Village Parkway, we care about our children and strive to offer care and learning that will demonstrate the love of Christ for each child and strengthen their faith. We have a full complement of Sunday School classes during the 9:30am hour for all ages that allows you, the parent, to attend your very own Sunday morning Bible Study class without worrying about your child(ren). We know your concern for the safety of your child(ren). As a result, every adult who works with our children must undergo Safe and Secure training which includes a background check. back to top
How do I become a Christian?
Romans 10:9-10 says, "that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation." It is as simple as that. If you want a fuller explanation you can find more information on "Our Beliefs" page. If you have just prayed and confessed faith in Jesus, please call to let us know. Our phone number is (210) 680-7813. back to top
What do you believe?
What we believe about God, Jesus, the Bible, and other topics is explained in the Baptist Faith & Message (2000). You can read the entire document in the "About Us" tab and then select "Beliefs." If you have questions after having read it, please call the church office. We'll be happy to sit down with you and answer your questions. back to top
How do I join?
Village Parkway Baptist Church is a family of believers in Jesus Christ. You can become a member in one of four ways: Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior and being baptized by immersion. If you have already accepted Jesus, but have not been baptized by immersion, then by following Him in believer's baptism you may be accepted as a member. We can have your membership changed to VPBC by Transfer of Membership by letter from another Southern Baptist Church. Or you may become a member by Statement of Faith having previously accepted Christ and experienced baptism by immersion. For those who desire to join in any one of these ways, an invitation is offered at the conclusion of each worship service. A pastor will be happy to speak with you about your decision, and a counselor will work with you to gather all needed information. We are blessed to have you become a part of our family here at Village Parkway! back to top
