a progressive congregation in Southwest Louisville

Worship with us Sundays, 11am.

Ridgewood Baptist Church is a growing, theologically progressive community in Southwest Louisville, Kentucky. We have folks who drive around the corner, the Highlands, St. Matthews, Butchertown, Iroquois, the East End and more. (A good church is always worth the drive!)

We pride ourselves on being a place of healing. Listen to Cheryl's story here. We are justice-focused and involved with area missions partners, advocacy programs, and donation efforts.

Founded in 1962, we currently most closely align with CBF (Cooperative Baptist Fellowship).  What does being baptist mean? Listen to this.

We have a well-blended worship service that emphasizes the Love of God through inclusive language and words of hope and challenge, not fear or militaristic imagery. We sing modern music and hymns together in one service, recognizing we all have diverse backgrounds. We share Communion every week together - it reminds us that all are welcome, always.

We are proud to offer a 6am-6pm, Monday-Friday Child Development Center ministry to the community, offering meals and 3C's options for ages 6 weeks through age 12 (before/after school). 



In April, we are focusing on "Holy Ground," a series on Ecotheology between Easter and Pentecost. On May 5th, we have an opportunity to worship "In the Garden" with our friends at the Food Literacy Project.

Ridgewood is proud to be a place where all are welcome: no matter what you look like, no matter who you love. We celebrate all God's children. We are an open & affirming community. We're not perfect, but we're committed to learning and caring for all God's children. Read more here.
