Discipleship is not a class,  a degree you can earn, 

a quick process, a seminar, 

a 12 week Bible Study, reserved for super Christians, 

a program,  or a 40 day home group. 

Discipleship is not hard, a quick fix,  

or an option for blood bought born again followers of Christ. 

Discipleship is not a lot of things,  but it is intentionally equipping believers  

with the Word of God through accountable relationships empowered by the Holy Spirit in order to replicate faithful  followers of Christ. 

The result of biblical discipleship  is bearing fruit for Christ.

Tuesday Bible Studies

Starting May 4th

10:00 am or 6:00 pm

First Baptist Church

Mrs. Karen Levengood will be leading a Precept Bible study on the book of Ruth. We are offering two different times on Tuesdays. Call the church office to sign up, 423-775-0255.

Food Group Ministry

Our church has four food groups that prepare meals for families in our church who have experienced a new birth, or

the death of a family member.

When an event occurs, we call on one of the groups, and

each person in the group prepares one or two food items and brings it to the church.

The food provided is a great way to minister to families

in their time of need.

"I Don't cook!", you say?? That's ok.

Join a group, and when called upon, donate cash, and someone in the group will provide a food item for you.

Ladies and Gentlemen, there is always a way to serve!

If you are not currently on one of the food groups,

but would like to be, call the church office to volunteer.


Church Service Recordings

CDs of church services from Thanksgiving 2016 to the present are available. Please sign up for copies through the church office or sign up in the foyers. DVDs of the 2015 and 2016 Community Christmas Concerts are also available. These programs were a huge blessing so you do not want to pass up the opportunity to get a copy. The audio from each service, excluding the Christmas concerts, can also be found on our website at Worship Recordings. If you know of any shut-ins that would enjoy having copies of these services, please let us know as well.
