Statement of Faith

We are a Southern Baptist Church believing that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the basis of any statement of faith. We observe the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Our church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of "The Baptist Faith and Message" as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 2000.


As long as the Lord tarries in His coming, our prayer is that our church shall always preach the fundamental truths of the Holy Bible, be evangelistic in its outreach, and remain a house of prayer for all people. The greatest legacy that we can leave to our children's children is a strong New Testament Church proclaiming the message of life, light, and liberty. "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel". Mark 16:15.

Greetings from the Pastor

Thank you for visiting us here at First Baptist Church in beautiful Mountain City, Tennessee.

At First Baptist we are working very hard to develop opportunities that will help followers of Christ grow in their spiritual lives. However, our number one concern is that everyone experiences a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. This is the most important decision a person will make in this life and determines one's eternal destiny.

After becoming a Christian it is vital to select a Christ-centered, Bible teaching church in order to grow in the faith. It is both the desire and duty of First Baptist to provide the teaching and tools that will make the Christian walk a victorious and joyous walk in this world in which we all live.

Again, thank you for taking time to visit us on-line, and we would like to invite you to come discover and see Jesus in us at First Baptist Church, Mountain City, Tennessee.

In Christ,

Rev. Ricky W. Campbell

Romans 11:33
