Southern Baptist Convention

Located high on the Cumberland Plateau, Sunbright First is a family of believers with a heart to serve the King of Kings. 2Corinthians 4:5 states our purpose: "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus'sake." It is our desire that neither this pastor nor the Sunbright First Baptist Church would be the central subject of this ministry. Christ Jesus is to be lifted up here. We desire to selflessly serve Him as we minister His Love first to Sunbright, then Tennessee, then to the world. Believers who are led here by the Lord are welcome. Sinners seeking Jesus are welcome. Members are expected to come to worship, leave to serve.
