About Colonial Baptist Church
Since its inception in 1984 Colonial Baptist Church has been a Bible-believing church that emphasizes the importance of following the Word of God and not the traditions of men. God stands with His hand outstretched to all people. As a church, we endeavor to have that same love for all and invite you to join us in the worship of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Please Note: Our weekly services
are now being held "in person."
We are not currently having children's Sunday school classes.
The Pastor & Staff
Pastor Ed Leake
Ed Leake has served as Pastor of Colonial Baptist Church since 1987. He and his wife, Pam, are natives of the Charlottesville area. Pastor Leake considers God’s call on his life to preach the Gospel to be the greatest privilege a man could have. He has a heart for people and enjoys not only preaching, but helping others reach their potential as children of God. His strong Bible preaching and teaching is a foundation for the spiritual growth of the church family.
Besides the regular outreaches of the church, Pastor Leake has led Colonial Baptist Church to have a part in reaching the world through a worldwide missions program and through Colonial Press, the printing ministry of CBC. As pastor, he has led by an example of faith in the Lord to do the impossible, relying on the Word of God for direction.
Pastor Leake and the members of Colonial Baptist Church extend an invitation to you to come and visit this friendly, family-oriented church just east of Charlottesville. It just might be where you find home!
