At Richmond Baptist, we believe that small acts of kindness done with the love of our Lord Jesus Christ are making a God-honoring impact in the lives of our people in our communities!
We practice living a life of kindness as the primary expression of divine worship. Therefore, we strive to live by one of our core values: Showing compassion - Loving people. Being people who care about others is key to living like Christ. Together we can impact more people with the love of Jesus, meeting physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs.
We reach out our city with the love of our Lord Jesus with following objectives in mind.
- To glorify the name of Jesus
- To make a difference in peoples’ lives with the love of God.
At Richmond Baptist, we do various church-wide outreach projects to demonstrate the love of God in our city. If you are interested to find out more information about our outreach ministry or get involved in one of the following outreach projects, please click on the following links.

Ride for Refuge
On Saturday, September 27th, Richmond Baptist will be raising funds for our various community outreach projects by peddling around the city! The funds that we raise through this Ride for Refuge Event go toward supporting those who are less fortunate in our community (homeless, single parents, families and kids from our low income housings). You will definitely make a difference in our beautiful city of Richmond by joining this ride for refuge event this year or sponsoring our riders. You can join the “Richmond Baptist Church Team” by clicking here.
Christmas Hamper Ministry
Every year during Christmas, Richmond Baptist reaches out about 150 low-income families & kids from our community with our Christmas Hamper (Agape Meal) project. Some in our neighborhood do not have a family, are alone, and many are struggling financially to even keep up with their bills. In reality, a lot of people are not so happy and peaceful during this time of the year. During this down time, your small ‘act of kindness’ through providing a simple agape meal to a family will definitely make a huge difference in their lives.
This year we are asking families and groups to make their own Christmas Turkey Meal Hamper. We will do the wrapping. Just give us the goods in a base box or basket. Please include all of the followng: A $20 gift card to Superstore or Save On, cranberry sauce, turkey gravy, turkey stuffing, mashed potatoes, canned vegetables, fruit juice, a family game or stuffed toy, and a Christmas card. Please drop off your hampers on Nov. 18 and 25 in the foyer.
We also need help wrapping and delivering the hampers. Please sign up at the foyer, or email Jun and Kelly Vivar.
