Saint Matthew Baptist Church is a church with a long-standing history in the Piedmont area. For over 100 years they have been a landmark in the community. They pride themselves on being a Worshipping, Witnessing and Working church with a goal of Claiming the World for Christ one Soul at a time. Choosing to attend a worship service at St. Matthew will prove to be an inspiring experience, due to their hospitable members, stimulating worship and motivating messages. Visitors are encouraged to come with an expectation of being treated like a member of the family of God, which St. Matthew believes to be a family full of diversities that are to be appreciated.
