Burke Memorial Baptist Church began as a Goodwill Center in the early 1930's, sponsored by First Baptist Church of Princeton. The church was constituted on June 17, 1945 and is part of the Mountain State Baptist Association, the West Virginia Convention of Southern Baptists and the Southern Baptist Convention.

We subscribe to the doctrinal statement of "The Baptist Faith and Message." Further, we believe the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God, that it is truth without error and will stand for all eternity, and is the basis for our faith and action. As a community of Christians we have joined together in covenant to be personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind, to laboring to make disciples who make disciples, and to support each other in prayer and encouragement.

Burke Memorial Baptist Church exists to see, savor, and spread the glory of God in Christ among all nations by making disciples who make disciples.
