Welcome to Full Gospel Baptist Church!


Church in frame

Under the leading of Pastors Ron and Karen Higson, Full Gospel SDB is a sabbath keeping church that believes first and foremost in salvation by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. Located in the rural beauty of Western Maryland, we can be found on Hazen Rd, conveniently just off Rt. 220, near Cumberland.

We’re often asked, “Why keep the Sabbath?”

We don’t believe the day we worship is a matter of salvation–we obey the Fourth Commandment out of loving obedience, just as we do the other nine of the Ten Commandments. Though we are often confused with other Sabbath-keeping churches, the Seventh Day Baptist church traces its roots to England of the 1600s, and our first American church was founded in Rhode Island in 1670. With rich history and a love for honoring the Lord, the entire Seventh Day Baptist Conference is a big family that we are proud to count ourselves a member of.

Family is crucial to us as an individual church too, and we love to welcome visitors and new members into our congregation of Spirit-filled worshipers. With edifying praise and worship, well beloved hymns, convicting sermons, and Sabbath school Bible studies for all ages, we offer a place to come and grow.

Grow in the Spirit, grow in the faith, grow in the Lord.
