Boyd Avenue Baptist Church began in a west side Casper home with a Bible study on August 12, 1956. With rapid growth, those people called a pastor, purchased property on Boyd Avenue and CY and became a church with 25 charter members in February of 1957. Since that time, by God’s grace, this body of believers has grown, had an impact on many lives and weathered the booms and busts of the community it serves.
Boyd Avenue has remained true to the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout its history, and looks forward to ministering for His glory in the years ahead. To that end, we are currently constructing a multipurpose building which we pray will multiply our opportunities for ministry and fellowship. We invite you to come find out how you can be a part of what God is doing here at Boyd Avenue Baptist Church.
