Gethsemane Community Fellowship Baptist Church | Community
Gethsemane is a place where you are welcome and where you will experience the love of Jesus Christ, spirit-filled worship, healthy relationships and fervent prayer. You will also encounter a church that is committed to ministering to the spiritual, physical, social and emotional needs of humanity. We are also a community serving ministry with major emphasis in the areas of jail ministry, ex-offender reentry, youth development services, and leadership development. We are centrally located in the heart of the beautiful city of Norfolk, Virginia, just two blocks from Norfolk State University.
Gethsemane's focus is centered around six major pillars of ministry inspired by the first century church in chapter 2 of Acts of the Apostles: we present the love of Christ through evangelism, praise the Lord through worship, petition the Lord through prayer, provide for the needs of people through missions, prepare the saints through Christian Education and Discipleship, and protect the unity of the body through fellowships.
