Greetings! We want to personally welcome you to the family of Olivet. For over 50 years, the members of Olivet Baptist Church has preached and served the community of Rock Island, the surrounding Quad-Cities and beyond with the love and message of Jesus Christ. Olivet draws worshippers from all over the Quad-Cities and from across the country. Our vision is to encourage believers to live and stand firmly on God’s Word. We endeavor to disciple all people to have an empowered faith; an enriched personal and family life, and biblically equip them to engage the world with the love of Jesus Christ.

People come to Olivet asking deep questions, seeking to experience the love of Jesus and discover the plans He has for their life. Are you looking for a church to call home? A place to grow spiritually? A place to discover your gifts? A place that encourages you to be all that Jesus has anointed you to be? Please don’t hesitate! Olivet welcomes you to come and grow with us. Join us in worship and allow the Word of God to take root in your heart, renew your mind, and ready your soul for the mighty things God has in store for you.

“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
