Pastor Luter's Welcome

WELCOME!  I'm so glad you are here!

Hello and welcome to the website of Franklin Avenue Baptist Church in New Orleans, Louisiana! Thanks for taking the time to check us out through our website!

Franklin Avenue Baptist Church is a warm, friendly church where our main mission is to “Exalt The Savior, Equip The Saints, and Evangelize The Sinners”. On our website, you will see more details about how we will fulfill our mission.

As you view the website, you will see upcoming activities, calendar of events, a list of ministries, staff information as well as other activities that make us a very active church. We have ministries for all ages from the cradle to our Senior Soldiers.

After being located in the Upper Ninth Ward for over fifty years, we recently moved into our brand new state of the art Worship Center in New Orleans East that will accommodate seating for 3500 members and guests.

Included in our new facility are space for Youth Church, Children’s Church, Sunday School Classrooms, staff offices, and various locations for fellowship including a huge gallery that encircles the sanctuary.

We welcome you to visit us whether you live in New Orleans or visiting our city.

We would love for you to worship with us! Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our church or about our beloved city of New Orleans!

God bless you and yours is my prayer! Grace and Peace,


Fred Luter, Jr,

Senior Pastor
