If you're new to the Baton Rouge area or just looking for a church to call home, you're in the right place.  Istrouma Baptist Church is simply a group of imperfect people, from all walks of life, who are being transformed by Jesus Christ. 


We are passionate about sharing the love of Christ by caring for each other and positively impacting our community, and we'd like to welcome you to one of our services this weekend!

Service Times

At Istrouma, we realize that one size does not always fit all, so we offer multiple worship services each Sunday morning.  At each service, you'll find the same warm greeting and friendly atmosphere, and the same great message from our pastor.  Try them on for size...we think you'll be glad you did. 


9:15am Worship Service

Led by the Istrouma Choir, Orchestra, and Praise Team, this service combines favorite hymns from our past as well as new and exciting songs from today, and a relevant, Christ-centered message from Pastor Jeff Ginn.

10:45am Worship Service

Casual in nature, this service features innovative multi-media, our Istrouma praise band, and a relevant, Christ-centered message from Pastor Jeff Ginn.


10:30am Worship Service

At our Ascension Campus, you'll find a casual service, led by Campus Pastor, T. Lusk.  Find out more about Istrouma Ascension.
