About Community Baptist Church:

We are an American Baptist Church but we function like many community churches: our desire is to follow Christ and to love our neighbors on Kodiak Island and around the world. As we've come through the pandemic, our numbers are smaller, but there is wonderful potential to draw others into fellowship with us. Our church initiated and hosts a large Trail Life and Heritage Girls program. We have a number of young Coast Guard families who attend. (Kodiak has the largest coast guard base in the country.) Our body is comprised of community leaders, educators, commercial fishermen, doctors, health workers---the gamut. Making us diverse, but deeply connected by our love for Jesus and our love of Kodiak.
