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.

The Royal Story

Cookie Stokes

I came to Royal Lane in 1969 at the invitation of my in-laws, John and Bettye Stokes. Bill and I had just returned from his Army days in El Paso and Okinawa. John was a deacon and the deacons had “Little Flocks”. These groups met in the deacon’s homes. There were quite a few people who came who could not attend on Sundays because of their work schedules. The people of Royal Lane were very involved in missions. The attic above our current kitchen was a clothes closet. This led to our being a founding organization of North Dallas Shared Ministries. We had our own kindergarten; we worked with Moses Reagan at Tabernacle Baptist Church in West Dallas; we were active with the Greater Dallas Community of Churches and the STEP (Strategies To Elevate People) program.
