We're All About Ministry

Sixteenth Street is blessed to have various ministries. Our ministries are designed to edify our fellowship and evangelize a lost world. It is our desire that everyone in our church be interconnected into a ministry.


 The Word of God states; God’s desire is that no man should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Pet. 3:9) Our mission is to introduce people to the saving faith of Jesus Christ. We engage the community prisons, shelters, and homes with volunteers from among our membership to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. These efforts are to encourage the Community to make a Decision to Know Christ.
