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!

The Royal Story
Author Sue Monk Kidd instantly drew me in to her book “The Dance of the Dissident Daughter” from the first paragraph of the introduction. She recalls a question she heard asked on National Public Radio: “Once you wake up, can you wake up any more?” She then goes on to describe a period of her life when she felt like she was waking up “some more.” As I think about my life, especially my spiritual life, I can definitely see patterns of waking up and waking up some more.
