About Us

University Baptist Church worships 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.
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.

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. For more information about our prayer warriors, or to get involved, 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.
