About Us

Who We Are

Since 1963 Derbyshire Baptist Church has been a family of faith in the West End of Richmond, VA and a beacon of hope for our community, our state, and our world. Derbyshire's theology and approach to community are grounded in the traditional Baptist distinctives. We affirm that all people, women and men, are called by God to minister and to serve. Although we are proud of our Baptist roots, we affirm and celebrate the whole, ecumenical Body of Christ. We find our primary calling and mission as members of the Christian Church in actively being the presence of Christ lived out through the Koinonia Spirit - the union of the faithful with Christ and among themselves.

This is our heritage and our mission. This is what matters most in our life and work as a community of Christian faith.
