Bay Street Church of God in Christ (The City
of Refuge and Praise) has been ministering to the people of the
Metro Orlando area for
over 67 years. Our church has always had man’s best interest
at heart. Our prayer and confidence is that we will make a mark
that will last into eternity. We are a Pentecostal church with
its roots grounded within the Church of God in Christ (Memphis,
TN). If you are not already involved in a church, we invite you
to see what we're about…

God in new and different ways as described in God’s Holy
Bay Street “Family Church” is a church where family
needs are met. We endeavor to touch the lives of men and women

those values to be true as echoed in God’s Holy Word.
Our purpose as a ministry is to Exalt God, Evangelize the lost,
and to Edify and Equip believers to fulfill God’s purpose

Our Call for Civic Welfare
Our concept of human welfare is broad. We are committed to helping
people overcome barriers to full participation in society. We pursue
strategies of "service, advocacy, and empowerment" for
meeting basic human needs and promoting democratic participation
for people everywhere.
We firmly believe that God created earth for mankind. We seek
to inform, empower and equip this generation through instruction
and example to appreciate the environment thereby restoring what
has been broken and conserving that, which is left as that future
generations will be able to enjoy Mother Earth.
We are committed to civil and human rights. We believe that God
created all men equal and that no person should be discriminated
against for any reason. We believe that humans have rights, and
should be afforded the opportunity to enjoy those rights.
In a world where suffering and poverty is evident, we demonstrate,
through our many services, that God created us for a mission, and
that mission is to serve our fellow man who is less fortunate than
the other. We proudly provide services to the disadvantaged while
we work for delivering services that meet basic human needs. We
firmly believe in the “power” of “empowerment” through
education. We believe that if we equip those who are less fortunate,
that they will develop the “power” to achieve beyond
their greatest imagination.
We strive to exemplify excellence and balance in all that we do:
are Passionate, Artistic and Reverent in our worship.

of Biblical truth.
- We are Diligent in equipping the Saints for the work of the

for the hurting.
