Broadview is a community of people expressing their faith in Jesus through acts of love for others. We have two locations in the city of Abilene. We exist to help people discover the living hope that is found in Jesus Christ.
We hope you’ll join us for a weekend worship service. You’re welcome to come just as you are. We’re not perfect people nor a perfect church. We do, however, worship a perfect Savior who loves you and offers you new life in his name.
At Broadview, there are no strangers. If you’ve been looking for a place to belong, you are welcome here!

FIRST TIME VISITOR?
Broadview is one church with two locations. We have a South Campus located at 2500 South 27th Street and a West Campus at 6500 Military Dr.
We have three morning worship services at our South Campus: 8:15 (traditional), 9:30 & 11:00 (contemporary).
Our West Campus meets for woship at 11:00.
We have preschool, children and adult small groups that meet at the 9:30 & 11:00 hour.
The Lord created this local congregation in 1959. A group of twelve people, members of the then Temple Baptist Church, sensed the Holy Spirit leading them to start a new work in South Abilene. It was a journey of faith that was long and hard at times.
They chose the name “Broadview” because of the view from this “high place” in Abilene. At that time there was not much out this way, but they also had a view of the future. A future that now contains a church with multiple worship services, multiple campuses, reaching multiple generations both here in Abilene and all around the world.
The mailing address for both Main and West campuses is 2500 South 27th, Abilene TX 79605.
First Time F.A.Q.
We know it can be somewhat unnerving to step into a new environment, especially when there are a lot of unknowns. To give you a glimpse of what you can expect, we have put together some answers to frequently asked questions.
What Do I Wear?
The dress code at Broadview is all across the board. Some people wear a suit and others wear shorts and flip-flops. Do not feel like you have to “dress up” to come to church. If you wear it Monday-Saturday then you can wear it to church on Sunday!
You are welcome “just as you are.”
Where Do I Park?
If you’re visiting you should park in the church’s east parking lot. The best parking spots are reserved for our guests. You’ll be greeted at the door by someone from our hospitality team. Feel free to mention you are a guest and they will put you at ease, answering any questions you may have.
Where Do I Go?
If you have young children (birth-5yrs), you’ll want to check them in through our preschool wing. You’ll see signage when you walk in or a member of our hospitality team would be happy to escort you.
If you have older children (1st-5th grade) then you’ll check them in through our children’s wing. You’ll see signage when you walk in or a member of our hospitality team can escort you. The children’s wing is on the north end of the Gathering Place.
Finally, if there are no check-ins, you’ll head straight into our worship center. It’s directly next to our Gathering Place so you can’t miss it. Be sure to grab a guest gift bag before you leave the campus. You’ll see them next to our connect cards on our connect table.
What Do I Do?
Sit back and enjoy the service. We will sing about 3-4 songs and after that a message will be shared. Broadview is committed to expository Bible teaching as well as making God’s truth relevant to your every day life.
At the end of our service we will have an invitation. During this time, people respond to God through prayer, personal decisions and other forms of worship.
If God speaks to you during the service, you’re welcome to respond by asking for prayer or making a decision to take your “next-step” in your relationsihp with God.
What Service Should I Attend?
Broadview is a multi-generational church. For that reason, different services have different musical genres. If you like southern gospel music or traditional hymns then the 8:15 service is most likely the service you’ll want to attend. However, our 9:30 and 11:00 services are much more contemporary. There’s a full band and the volume of the music is generally louder.
What If I Don't Normally Go To Church?
At Broadview we want to create a welcoming environment for those who are curious about God. You don’t have to “believe what we believe” to be welcome in our worship services.
We want Broadview to be a place where you can learn, experience and wrestle with the truth about God. It’s okay if you don’t have it all figured out yet.
What Does The Pastor Usually Talk About?
We believe that God wants to be involved in our everyday lives, so we present the ageless truths of the Bible in a format that’s easy to understand, even if you’ve never been to church.
The sermon will be over a certain section of the Bible. Application will be made to daily life. We are committed to expository preaching which means the main point of the Bible text is the main point of the sermon. We typically go verse by verse through entire books of the Bible.
What About My Kids?
Broadview is a family-friendly church. We believe that children are a blessing from God and should be taught about God and his plan for the world in a fun learning environment.
For kids who are nursery age to 5 years old, they can stay during both Sunday school hours (9:30 & 11:00) and learn about God in a fun and relevant way.
Our 1st – 5th graders also have Sunday school at 9:30 and 11:00. They are welcome to stay both hours or they can attend the worship service with you and do small group afterwards.
We want your kids to not only learn about God but also have a fun experience doing so.
