About Us

Sojourn Church Carlisle is a unique story of two church bodies joining together to partner with one another on mission. Carlisle Avenue Baptist Church started in 1911, serving as a staple in the community for over 100 years. In the summer of 2018, as the church recognized their dwindling size and the changes in the community they were trying to reach, they approach the Sojourn Collective churches aboutadopting them into this local family of churches. On Easter of 2019, Sojourn Church Carlisle officially launched, and the two congregations became one. In a unique way, Sojourn Church Carlisle is a new church with a long, rich history.

Vision, Mission, Values

Our mission at Sojourn Carlisle is to reach people with the Gospel, build them up as the Church, and send them out into the world. As we carry out our mission as a church, we hope to embody our values—Maturity, Multi-Ethnicity, Missionality—which come straight from Ephesians 4:11-16. Our vision (or hope) is that we would be a beacon of light in our neighborhood, seeing lives transformed by the Gospel of Jesus in South Louisville and beyond.
