The doors are open to you at Royal Lane Baptist Church. We invite you to come share the adventure of faith with us. We see ourselves as a family. We disagree some, but we still work, worship, minister, and play together. We are a diverse people united in Christ.

We believe that a meaningful commitment to Christ is best exemplified by a genuine commitment to one another.

If you need a place where you can be yourself, ask questions, find support, and not get lost in the crowd, Royal Lane is the place for you. We could tell you more about our church, but the character of any church is best observed from up close. Come and see!

As we learned in a recent CNN video, Lake Providence is home to the greatest income gap in the country. We felt the call, so we went.
