Our purpose as individual believers and as a church is to share the unconditional love of God with people right where they are and seek to meet their needs. We do this through the teaching and preaching of the Word of God, through sharing the GOOD NEWS of salvation in Jesus Christ, and through loving ministry to people. Our ministry is person-to-person, home-to-home, city-wide, regional, and around the world! Every person matters to God and to us. And, that means you!

Church Ministries


Fully age-graded departments are provided for children, grades 1-5. Children are taught by loving, caring, well-trained teachers in attractive, well equipped rooms. Our text book is the Bible. Bible learning activities and projects are planned to guide children in meaningful learning experiences, applying Bible Stories and Biblical concepts to everyday lives. There is a strong emphasis on scripture memory, daily Bible reading, and prayer.


Full Circle is the college ministry of Whitesburg Baptist Church. The name "Full Circle" indicates the process of biblical discipleship which drives our ministry. As each person invests his or her life into the life of another, the process comes full circle as those people invest their lives into the lives of others.

God meets people where they are.  So do we.  All together or falling apart.  Strong or weak.  On top of the world or in the pits.  Whitesburg is a come-as-you-are church.  You'll find people totally committed to helping you build a life that is all you want it to be.  Meaningful.  Exciting.  Rewarding.  Joyful.  Triumphant.  And more.  To build lives like that means meeting people right where they are.  No matter where that is.


Our Missions Ministry, in conjunction with TIME (Training In Mission Evangelism), is ever organizing and making trips within the country and around the world. Mission teams include evangelism teams, medical groups and construction teams, always with the burning desire to spread God's Word.


The Ministry of Music and Worship exists to lead the body of Whitesburg Baptist Church in genuine, life-giving praise and worship and to encourage worship as a lifestyle in the heart of the believer. We believe that participants in the worship ministry are called to be servant-leaders whose mission is to glorify God, edify the church, and equip other believers. Over the last several years, the music ministry has expanded into an arts ministry—choir, orchestra, drama, dance, visual arts, multimedia, and technical services.


The Bible is taught on an age appropriate level through Bible stories, Bible thoughts, and activities.  Activities used to teach your child spiritual truths are books, puzzles, home living materials, nature items, art, and music.
