Thank you for taking the time to visit our web site. Onley Baptist Church is a vibrant and friendly Southern Baptist Church located at 25501 West Main Street, in the town of Onley on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. I have had the privilege to Pastor this wonderful group of people since January 2000 and have seen God do many exciting things during this time.
I want to personally invite you to join us for worship at Onley Baptist Church. Don't worry about what to wear. Whether it is blue jeans or a coat and tie, you will fit in and feel welcome. We seek to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth as we study His word and apply it to our everyday lives.
We have Sunday School for all ages each Sunday morning from 9:45-10:45 a.m. Our Worship Service starts at 11:00 a.m. On Wednesday evenings we have our children's ministry, "Treasure Cove," at 6:15 p.m, and we also have Youth Group and adult bible studies at 6:30 p.m.
If you have any questions after surfing this site, please feel free to contact us. I look forward to seeing you this Sunday!

2 Chronicles 2:4 (NIV)
Now I am about to build a temple for the Name of the LORD my God and to dedicate it to him for burning fragrant incense before him, for setting out the consecrated bread regularly, and for making burnt offerings every morning and evening and on Sabbaths and New Moons and at the appointed feasts of the LORD our God. This is a lasting ordinance for Israel.

And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.
And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.
But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.
