Our Story

How it all started...

Pastor Mark Doss and his wife Karen started Topeka Baptist Church in January of 1998 with 20 people. They met at Southwest Baptist Church during the hours before it was being used by their congregation. The church grew and soon two services were needed.

Our present property at 45th and Gage was purchased and in 2001 a sanctuary was built. Not long after, an addition was added to the south side of the church. In May of 2014 the new church building and present sanctuary was finished.

Expanding the vision...

From the beginning, Topeka Baptist Church existed to guide people to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We believe that Jesus is the answer to a broken world. Through love and God's Word we desire to see many come to the knowledge of salvation that is only found in Jesus.

Where we are headed...

As we teach the Word of God and help people grow spiritually in His truth, we invite you to come and grow with us as we serve the King of kings at Topeka Baptist Church!
