Our Story

About us

A grace-driven people for a grace-needing world connecting the heart of Montgomery County with the heart of Christ.

We’re a growing family of believers located in Derwood, Maryland, in the center of Montgomery County, with members coming from all over, including Rockville, Germantown, Gaithersburg, North Potomac, Potomac, Bethesda, Kensington, Silver Spring, Laurel, Wheaton, Aspen Hill, Olney, Brookeville, Ashton, Frederick, and beyond.

How it all started...

The church began in 1966 with 21 people meeting at a member’s home, and over the years, our church building has been built in several phases. Now hundreds of people gather each week on our 13-acre campus.

In 2016, Redland Baptist Church celebrated 50 years of active service in the Derwood area of Montgomery County, MD, a suburb of Washington, DC.

Expanding the vision...

Redland has established several local churches in new suburban areas in Montgomery County. Numerous programs and ministries have been established throughout the years at Redland.

We have sent a number of mission teams throughout the United States and overseas; our mission trips are now annual events.

And in 2011, we dedicated our “ROC” a multi-purpose recreational outreach center.  This facility hosts children’s camps, open gym sports and other events to engage and serve families in our community. Numerous programs and ministries have begun throughout the years here at Redland.

Where we are headed...

As the church has grown and changed, Redland members have remained committed to loving God, loving others, and serving Montgomery County and the world in the name of Jesus Christ.

It’s easy to fit into our diverse congregation, which is a combination of long-term members and people who have arrived in Montgomery County more recently. We have members of all ages – as shown by our strong programs for children, teens, adults and senior adults!

At Redland you’ll find some people who are lifelong Baptists, as well as many from other church backgrounds or who have had little previous experience with Christianity.

All are welcome here!
