WELCOME FROM                                      Pastor Richard L. Curry, Jr.                            & Kimberly Curry

We are glad you have chosen to spend a few moments exploring our website and learning more about our church family. When we describe True Tried to people, the words "community focused" and "family focused" are common themes throughout the conversation.  We are a group of people committed to following Jesus. This means, we worship Him with vigor and joy. This means, we encourage prayer in church and throughout life. This means, we love people outside the church through generosity, invitation, and compassion.

Our hope is that all people will feel loved and welcomed. We pray that people will meet God, and as a result of meeting Him, they will give their lives to Jesus Christ. We want that for you. Come as you are. Check us out! More importantly, seek the truth of God that can only be known when one knows Jesus.


While you are browsing our website, you will learn about our ministries and get a glimpse of who we are, but only a glimpse. To fully understand us, come to a worship service or to a small group meeting and experience the up-close, in-person fellowship that comes when people spend time together with the Holy Spirit present. Enjoy the website, then come. We’d love to meet you and know you.


It is vision of the True Tried Missionary Baptist church by the grace of God, to become a church active and focused on meeting the needs of families in our congregation and the community. It is the goal of our church family to continually strive to become a 24-hour a day, seven day a week kingdom building community church.

The mission of the True Tried Missionary Baptist church is to fulfill the biblical mandate as prescribed in the great commission to make disciples in order to repair and restore God’s kingdom here on earth.
