We Welcome You!
City Of Praise
Who We Are
Welcome to Philadelphia City of Praise Baptist Church in Philadelphia, PA. Among Black Baptist churches in Philadelphia near Temple University Hospital we are a North Philadelphia City of Praise. As a place of worship among Philadelphia churches, we are here for Philadelphia church seekers seeking a place of Divine inspiration, spiritual formation, social engagement and personal empowerment.
Among African American churches and places of worship in Philadelphia, Philadelphia City of Praise honors its triple heritage as an African, American and Christian religious organization. In this sense, we are a congregation of color connected to Africa, America and Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. We unashamedly bring these triple traditions to worship each Sunday to bear witness to the Word of God that affirms our African, American and Christian identity.
For church worship, we invite you to come experience the power of Sunday worship at 1:00 p.m. Come enjoy contemporary gospel music and contemporary black preaching by our pastor Reverend Dr. A. Carl Prince. Both gated and side street parking is available. Our worship service is free to the public and you are welcome to dress formal or come as you are.
