Maywood Baptist Church is over 100 years old. We have served the people of western Independence for our entire existence. The work with the community has taken many different forms over the years. Our members live in various areas of Independence and the Kansas City metropolitan area. However, our church has always had the “flavor” of a neighborhood church.

We are a diverse congregation. A quick look at the pictures on the website tells more about who we are than can be expressed in words. As you browse the website, we hope you will notice young and old, along with people from many varied backgrounds.

Maywood values prayer, worship, local and international missions, Bible study, fellowship, spiritual friendship, cooperation with other churches, and community relations as essential to the life of our church.
