Royal Lane Baptist Church is an inclusive, multi-generational community of believers in God as revealed in Jesus Christ. We believe in the inspiration of scripture, the equality of all persons, unity in diversity, and the priesthood of all believers. In communion with and through the power of the Holy Spirit, we follow the way of Christ and share the good news through worship, education, missions, and ministries.
We are a vibrant welcoming and affirming mosaic of ethnicities, racial identities, sexual orientations, and socioeconomics. We affirm the sacredness, dignity, and equality of every person.
Royal Lane is a progressive and autonomous Baptist church valuing the freedom to minister alongside other groups, both Christian and non-Christian.

Illuminations of “The Sermon on the Mount as Told by St. Matthew” and “The Lord’s Prayer” were donated to Royal Lane Baptist Church on May 11, 2016, by Lyle Henry “Hank” & Susan Alterman. These are from the collection of Dr. Lyle M. Sellers, a practicing physician and surgeon at Baylor University Medical Center for over thirty-five years and Chief of Otolaryngology from 1946 to 1963. Hank Alterman is Dr. Sellers’ grandson. Christine Nicolette-Gonzalez and Scott Gonzalez provided the framing.
