About Glen Iris Baptist Church
Glen Iris is a body of believers that meets in the heart of the city. We are an autonomous, historic Baptist church located one block from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) campus on Southside, and just minutes from Vulcan and Five Points South. We are a thriving gospel-centered ministry that desires to be a light to the city of Birmingham. Our goal is the glory of God, and "that in all things He might have the pre-eminence."
We at Glen Iris desire to honor and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ in all that we do. We endeavor to accomplish this by obeying His Word in the following areas: offering the sacrifice of praise, giving thanks to His name continually with the fruit of our lips, doing good and sharing our gifts and abilities, assembling together regularly for worship and instruction in righteousness, and encouraging one another unto love and good works. Our desire is to glorify God in all that we do and to make disciples of Jesus Christ in the various ways made available to us. This, we believe, is accomplished by holding fast the faithful Word in teaching sound doctrine (Hebrews 13:15-17; Mark 16:15; Titus 1:9).
