Who is Greater Union? Why Choose Us?

Greater Union Baptist Church was founded in 1916 on Greenwood Avenue in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Over 103 years ago, Rev. W. H. Woods began to preach to a congregation that became what is now known as the Greater Union Family. In the 1920s, our Greenwood location burned down. It was a time of great sadness and loss, however, the Greater Union Family came together and rebuilt what they lost. Greater Union has a history of perseverance. After the rebuilding of the church house, Greater Union grew stronger under the tutelage of Rev. D. C. Cooksey, Sr. For many years, Greater Union thrived on the historic Greenwood Avenue. In the late seventies, Greater Union moved to where it currently resides in North Tulsa. 955 E. 36th St. North has become the home of the fantastic Greater Union Baptist Church. Here at GUBC, we hope to inspire a spirit of perseverance in our members’ hearts. We believe that even in our darkest times, God will see us through. “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him” (James 1:12 NIV).

What Our Members are Saying

“Each time I visit Greater Union, I’m treated like family and I love it!”
Barry Walton

GUBC was on FIRE this morning! The choir sang with the anointing of the Holy Spirit as they graced us with “The Lord Is Blessing Me.” Then, Pastor Vanzelen Brown gave a powerful message about Submission in the biblical realm. My God showed up and showed out! Thank you, Lord for blessing me exceedingly!
