Rev. Ryan Tankersley, Pastor

Welcome to St. John’s

Welcome to St. John’s Baptist Church, where fellowship and worship are at the heart of our community. Located in the center of Woburn, Massachusetts, we invite you to join us for a transformative worship experience.

Our vision, mission, and core values are the following:

Our Vision

At St. John’s, our vision is to build a united local, national, and global faith community. We believe in the healing power of God’s love and welcome people from every generation, nation, and tribe to experience the gospel of Jesus Christ through sincere worship, service, ministry, and empowerment in God’s Word.

Our Mission

Our mission is to reach people in the will of God, reconnect them in the family of God, restore families in the Kingdom of God, and reclaim our community for the glory of God. We are committed to trusting God’s Word in the Bible, serving with ministerial excellence, communicating in love and without judgment, and staying laser-focused on prayer within every ministry.


At St. John’s, we value and respect everyone in each interaction, showing no partiality. We are dedicated to teaching and empowering future spiritual leaders, so they can prepare the next generation. We utilize innovative methods, both local and online, to share the gospel message worldwide. We also strive for regular community service and social engagement for maximum impact.

We trust that you will be blessed by our worship service at St. John’s.

Kindest regards in Christ,

Pastor Tankersley

Black History Teaching Program

January 23, 2024


St. John’s Baptist Church, Woburn, Massachusetts will host four (4) sessions as they launch the Black History Teaching Program. The BHTP will strive to:

  • Appreciate, value and share many accomplishments of Black people and others from the African Diaspora
  • Connect and afford the opportunity to strengthen cross generational ties and communication essential to future success, legacy building and reverence to our ancestors 

“Knowledge is POWER” and education is the essential passport required to negotiate life’s journeys. Being educated provides us the understanding to first know whose we are and then deepen our understanding about who we are as Black people. George Washington Carver, a great Black inventor said “Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom”

Sessions will be held on the following Saturdays from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm: February 24, 2024, April 20, 2024, June 22, 2024 and September 28, 2024.
