Lynchburg, Tenn. — Home to Jack and Jesus!
You’ve probably heard of Lynchburg, Tenn. — or at least our most famous export. But there’s much more to this small-town Tennessee Valley staple than Old No. 7.
Welcome to First Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Tenn., where our mission is to share the Word of Jesus Christ!
Jack Daniel may have put Lynchburg on the map but it’s Jesus who keeps us on the straight ‘n’ narrow. To that end, First Baptist offers everyone — children, teens, and adults — the chance to worship through song and scripture.
Throughout the Bible, stories of faith reveal the rewards God sends to those who believe — and who live by the spiritual values they cherish. During difficult times, stories of hope help sustain and inspire us to never give up.
“And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” — 1 Corinthians 13:13
We’d love for you to join us at First Baptist, where small-town virtues remain as strong as God’s Word.
