Our Story

Our History...

Leicester Baptist Church has been faithfully proclaiming the gospel in Leicester since the 1980’s. Leicester is an independent baptist church that is committed to the authority and power of the word of God to change lives. Independent baptists churches believe that the Bible is the church’s final authority–not a person or preacher or organization.

Brother Chad Ellege was called to pastor LBC in the fall of 2012, and the church is excited about the road ahead as the Lord uses Leicester Baptist to see people saved, grown in the Lord, and commissioned for His service.

Philosophy of Ministry

Leicester Baptist Church is committed to:

  • The Gospel
  • Bible preaching  (that’s how people are saved and built)
  • Independent Baptist distinctives

 If you have any questions, please be sure to let us know. We would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
