The Eglise Baptiste sur Hendaye is a small house church founded in this village in the French Basque Country in 2009. As far as we know, we are the first evangelical or protestant church in the history of Hendaye. What unites us is our common faith in Jesus. As we do not have a place to meet due to our small number, our meetings are held in a house. We are here to provide a place for evangelical or Protestant Christians to congregate, as well as for people who want to learn more about Jesus.
Meetings can be either in French or Spanish. We can translate into English if we are notified in advance.
We congregate every Sunday for a common cause: to worship Jesus and to get to know Him better. We study the Bible because we believe it is the only valid and safe way to know God, to learn from Him, and to build up our faith and mutual hope.
Our meetings are held every Sunday at 11.00am. If you want to come, please let us know one or two days in advance.

Due to the current confusion caused by the large number of sects or strange groups that proclaim themselves "Christian" or "Evangelical", and the tremendous and narrow-minded ignorance about it by many people, we must introduce ourselves: we are Baptist Christians. Several centuries ago, the name "Baptist" began to be used to describe some churches that emerged during the Protestant Reformation and even in previous centuries. Historically, the term "Baptist Christian" has been used with disdain, even by other Protestants, to describe members of this Christian denomination. Baptists are characterized by specific distinctions: among others, we take the Bible as the only Word of God and the only source of doctrine and Christian life, active participation in the life and ministry of the church, baptism by immersion as an act of adult and personal faith, religious freedom, and the defense of the Church's independence in relation to the State.
Some famous people of Baptist faith: Martin Luther King Jr. (assassinated in 1968 for fighting against racial segregationism and Nobel Peace Prize winner), David Livingstone (Missionary and explorer in Africa through a Baptist mission), Charles H. Spurgeon (famous 19th century English preacher), John Bunyan (Puritan writer who spent decades in prison for his faith and wrote the famous "Pilgrim's Progress"), John Piper and John MacArthur (both very famous preachers today), Abraham Lincoln (16th president of the United States), Johnny Cash (1932-2003. Singer who, despite his stormy life, never renounced his faith and returned to it in his later years), Billy Graham (famous American preacher and evangelist), George Washington (First President of the United States), Jimmy Carter (39th President of the United States), etc.
