Come check us out. You may be surprised to find that we are not even close to your typical Baptist church.

Welcome to West Kingston Baptist Church. Our church began over one hundred years ago on the fairgrounds just down the
road from the Kingston train station. It started with just a handful of people and a few children. As the years passed, it started to grow – in size and in its love for Jesus.
Our pastor, Keith Mlyniec, and his wife Ruth, began with us in May 2005. Before that, they spent ten years in Iceland, where they were helping to start a church. Actually, they came back to us since this was the church they both attended while they were students at URI in the 70’s.
Today, we have a fresh passion that is unfolding into a rich love for God, his people, and the South County community. We’re glad to be here. We welcome you!
