About Us

University Baptist Church will worship together in unity as a body of believers in Jesus Christ, reach out to the community to evangelize the lost and disciple all Christians through the power of the Holy Spirit. We realize the importance of reflecting Christ in all that we do. We believe that God has placed us here in Thibodaux, Louisiana to minister and encourage each other, in this area and around the world.

What We Believe

University Baptist Church believes in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Son of God and there is no other name under heaven by which we might be saved.
We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The bible being the word of God is completely without error and here for our direction, correction and conviction.
We believe the church is the Bride of Christ and God has raised her up in all His glory, that She might shine in such a way that others will be brought to Him through Her light.
University Baptist Church also believes in the Priesthood of the Believer and that god has placed a special calling on our lives.
We believe in worshiping the living God consistently inside and outside the church.

Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of University Baptist is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. UBC members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as to serving food at fellowships to things like missions days in New Orleans and the surrounding areas, where we serve others as Christ did and share the Gospel with them!


Mission Outreach

University Baptist is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in supporting missionaries with our money and with our prayers. One of the missionaries we support currently lives in Pakistan, where Muslim is the prominent religion, and he is striving to spread the good news of the Gospel with everyone in his country. The other missionary we support currently resides in India where he battles the over-riding Hindu religion and seeks to share the Gospel with everyone there. In addition to the support of these men each year, a small team from our church travels to New Orleans three separate times to feed the homeless on the river front in New Orleans and provide service work and assistance to other organizations in the New Orleans area that might need our help. During the summer months we are also involved in local missions, some in Thibodaux, Lockport and the surrounding areas. Our main goal is provide people with their physical needs, while sharing the Gospel, which will meet their spiritual needs (just as we see Jesus did –John 6:1-15).  We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community. For more information about missions and outreach opportunities, or to get involved, contact ubc@ubcthibodaux.net.


Worship Team

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of UBC, using their talents and gifts to glorify God. If you are interested in finding out more information about our worship team, or to get involved today, contact Lawrence Ledet at worship@ubcthibodaux.net



The usher team at University Baptist fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life. For more information on how you can become an active part of our usher team, contact ubc@ubcthibodaux.net.


Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of UBC. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. At each of our services we strive to use media in various different ways to help add to our services and be the best steward we possibly can of what we have been given. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication. With that being said, we are constantly looking for volunteers to help us run sound during our services, as well as some to run powerpoint during our services as well. In addition we also be interested in talking to anyone who might have experience in maintaining websites (including facebook and twitter pages) and would be interested in doing so on a volunteer basis. For more information, or to volunteer for our in service media opportunities please contact Lawrence Ledet at worship@ubcthibodaux.net. For more information, or to volunteer to assist with our website media please contact David Scott at dscott@ubcthibodaux.net.


Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. University Baptist is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each week we have a group of volunteers that is praying for the ministry of the Word at UBC and those who are in attendance. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Prayer Warriors team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study. For more information about our prayer warriors, or to get involved, please contact ubc@ubcthibodaux.net.


Children’s Ministry

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, UBC has three children’s ministry programs on any given week. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s ministry volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons. Our children’s ministry programs include children’s church, which occurs in conjunction with the 10:45am service on the first and third Sunday morning of each month, Kids Club for Christ, which occurs every Wednesday night at 6:30pm, and our AWANA’s ministry, which occurs every Sunday night at 5:30pm when school is in session. If you would like more information, or are interested in volunteering in any of our children’s ministry programs, please contact ubc@ubcthibodaux.net.

Our God is a God of abundance and He loves to give. He sacrificed willingly on the cross and then invited us into fullness of life. As His children, we are called to imitate Him. Our generosity in giving is a demonstration of God’s character and a response to what He has done for us.
