Our ministry is built around three core meeting times we call Rest, Follow, and Lead. Rest, Follow, and Lead represent specific gathering times throughout the week that are designed to guide students toward a deeper understanding of who God is and a stronger willingness to follow the teachings of the Holy Spirit which we pray will result in our students leading others based on the commands given in Scripture.


There are many ways to get involved. Here are three of them:
1) Come to a worship service on Sunday morning.
2) Look into joining a Small Group, and get to know some great people.
3) Come to Rest, our Wednesday night student worship @6p.


We’re so glad you’ve decided to visit us! Here is a list of commonly asked questions. Please do not hesitate to send us a message or give us a call at (865) 986-9066

How do I get there?
First Baptist Church is located on Simpson Road East in Lenoir City, TN, approximately 1/4 of a mile off highway 321.

Where should I park?
You are welcome to park in any of the lots on campus. However, the most convenient lot for student events is located in the rearmost parking lot from which you will enter under the large drive-through brick overhang.

What should I wear?
You are welcomed to dress for comfort. We only ask that clothing have appropriate coverage and bear no foul language or obscene graphics or advertisements.

This ministry means more to me than I ever thought it would. Not because I've let it be but because God made it to be. He speaks through our music to bring unrelenting joy and everlasting peace.

Student Ministry means the world to me, it helps me understand my true relationship with God. I am able to feel relief when I'm at my church, and come to know everyone there as if they are my brothers or sisters.
