Starlight Missionary Baptist Church of Slidell, Louisiana has been serving the needs of the Slidell community for over 136 years. It has a rich history which is exemplified by its location. Centered in the heart of "Olde Towne" it is an icon of the greatness and of the sustaining power of God. Starlight remains standing and serving because "it is built on nothing less than Jesus Christ and His righteousness." Starlight has its beginning in the year of 1878 and the Lord has and continues to bless Starlight Missionary Baptist Church by providing the things we need in order to be a blessing to the community and to the world. We pray that Starlight will always be a light to shine before men, keeping the faith as did our founders. "Depending upon the continued guidance of the truth, we work and pray for the transformation of the world into the kingdom of GOD and Life Everlasting." With such a faith, the pastor and people of the Starlight Missionary Baptist Church expect to meet the challenge of the FUTURE. In spite of hardships, we remain centered in Christ and based in the Bible; a church with one mission... TO LEAD OTHERS TO CHRIST.
