University Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist church at 1197 University Avenue, Fairbanks, Alaska 99709 was established in 1959. Our pastor is Gary Cox, who joined us in September 2000 with his wife, Jennifer and three sons.

Sunday Worship times: 9:45 a.m. for Sunday School (all ages), 11 a.m., and 6 p.m.

What to Expect Sunday:

Our Sunday Services are at 11 a.m., and 6 p.m. All blend traditional elements and hymns with some more contemporary choruses. Over the course of a month, you can expect to hear a mix of congregational singing, choir, ensembles, trios, instrumentalists, and solos.  There is no rigid dress code, though evening services tend to be more informal. Services last about one hour. There is also Preschool Worship (age 4-K) every Sunday (except the fifth) in room 210. Bible Study for all ages begins at 9:45 a.m. There is also a Children's Church meeting at 11am in room 303 all Sundays but the fourth and fifth. The church has a "cry room" equipped with closed circuit TV of the services, as well as a nursery for birth through age 4 during all services. All nursery workers (paid or volunteer) have passed background checks. During the winter, in the evening, during the 6 p.m. service, Mission Friends meet (for age 4-K) in room 210, and CA's for grades 1-6 in room 311.

The congregation itself is a mix of ethnicities from all walks of life. While predominately "anglo," we have a Chinese Mission, with outreaches to the Philippines and Africa. Church members include African-Americans, Filipinos, & Koreans, to name just a few.

We have complete church information available by phoning 907-479-2440 and surfing our menus when the phones are on "auto attendant." Extension 502 will take you to special announcements, and 503 will give you regular weekly events, for example. Our staff page gives staff extension numbers.
