Istrouma's Centennial Celebration

1920 - 2020

Istrouma Baptist Church is grateful for a century of sharing the gospel of Christ with the city of Baton Rouge. Celebrate with us all year long!


As part of our Centennial Celebration, Istrouma is giving back to the community. To celebrate our anniversary, we are giving away a total of $100,000 in 2020 -- $1,000 for every year of our existence. Each month we will give a sizable gift to a partner ministry or organization, so stay tuned for those announcements.

Our first Centennial Gift helped eradicate over $1.5M in medical debt for 670 needy families in South Louisiana. That's 670 families who no longer have the burden of unpaid medical bills. These families live right here in East Baton Rouge and surrounding parishes. What a blessing it is for us to have the opportunity to help others. Soli Deo Gloria -- to God alone be the glory!
