About Us

At Colonial Beach Baptist Church, our mission is clear:

We exist to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping believers to love God, one another, and the lost. We are committed to fulfilling the Great Commission and striving to become mature, multiplying disciples for the glory of God.


Our journey of faith is marked by a deep love for Christ, a passion for community, and an unwavering dedication to serving those around us.

Colonial Beach Baptist Church is more than just a place of worship; it's a home for people in every season of life. No matter where you find yourself on your spiritual journey or in life's journey, you are welcome here. Our church is a diverse and inclusive family, and we take pride in offering ministries that cater to various age groups and transitional points in people's daily living.

Our dedicated leadership team is committed to shepherding our congregation on our faith journey. Rev. Kenny Daniel serves as our Pastor, providing spiritual guidance, support, and teaching. Benjamin Swanson leads our music department as Director of Music, nurturing our worship experience. Our worship music ensemble, Infinite Harmony, is open to anyone interested in making music—singers, guitar players, drummers, handbell players, and other instrumentalists. Our leadership is dedicated to fostering a church atmosphere that is warm and continually evolving.

Our vision is to be a radiant light in our community, reflecting God's love, grace, and truth. We aspire to create an environment where individuals and families can come as they are and find acceptance, encouragement, and a sense of purpose. Together, we seek to grow in our relationship with Christ, deepen our connections with one another, and reach out to those who have yet to experience the transformative power of God's love.

We invite you to become a part of our church family and embark on this incredible journey of faith with us. Whether you are a seasoned believer or just beginning to explore your faith, Colonial Beach Baptist Church is a place where you can find spiritual growth, meaningful connections, and opportunities to serve others.
