About us

Millfield Baptist Church is a moderate Baptist church located in northern Southampton County, Virginia.

Ours is an historic congregation—having been around for over 180 years—but we’re also an active fellowship seeking to serve the residents of Southampton, Sussex, Isle of Wight, and Surry counties. Some of our members’ families have lived on the same land nearby for generations. Others moved here within the past few months. Some of our members farm the land around our church while others commute to jobs in Suffolk, Chesapeake, and Newport News.

Our worship style might be described as casual–traditional. We sing the hymns of the faith, but we also make room for newer pieces. Some folks come dressed in their “Sunday best” while others come in “khaki-casual.” With 75–100 people typically participating in Sunday morning worship, we are small enough for people to know one another and large enough to carry out significant ministry.

Our children’s ministry (including Vacation Bible School) and music ministries are among our strongest programs. More information can be found about them under "Our Ministries." Our deacons, who are men and women, are structured around a ministry team model. These teams are also described on the Deacons page.

Millfield Baptist Church is exploring new ways to be God’s people in a growing and changing community. We are trying to discern the gifts God has given us to best be of service to Him in this place. We invite you to join us on this journey of faith as we seek to be the people God calls us to be.
