Welcome to Refuge Evangelical Baptist Church

The family of Refuge is a multi-cultural church in Philadelphia, PA that welcomes everyone to experience the presence of God as we Praise and Worship Him!

Thank you for visiting our website. We believe that your presence has been providentially arranged by God, and our prayer is that your experience will be spiritually uplifting, fills you with joy and leads you to a closer walk with Christ.

If you already have a church home, we thank you for taking the time out to stay connected with us. However, if you are ever in the neighborhood and do not have a church home, we invite you to fellowship with us and experience the electrifying presence of God first hand.

In all things, remember that God is our Refuge and Strength (Psalm 46:1).

In His Service,
Reverend Dr. W.S. Richardson, Pastor / Founder
and First Lady Gwendolyn L. Richardson
