In the Baptist tradition, all of God’s people are ministers. Our three vocational pastors are called to equip the people of God in Christian service. Each pastor has entered the vocational ministry by the calling of God and has been ordained to the Gospel ministry. Although each pastor has an area of focus and special training, all of our pastors minister to the whole congregation.
Family Life Ministry
Our Family Life Ministry includes people of all ages, single and married. The Family Life Ministry plans activities that strengthen and nurture the bonds of fellowship and community through missions, fellowship, and Christian growth activities. Our Family Night at Christmas brings our children together in celebration of the birth of Christ, and the annual Make a Difference Day brings together folks of all ages to clean the fall leaves from the lawns of some of our physically limited people. We are fully devoted to ministry to the needs of young families including youth, children, and parents.

In addition to contributing to denominational causes such as the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, Southern Baptist Convention, Tennessee Baptist Convention, and the Clinton Baptist Association, FBC has mission activities outside of the church. One activity of long standing is our AGAPE Help Center that distributes food and clothing to those in need. A newer activity is Kids Hope in which we partner with Woodland Elementary School in mentoring “at risk” children. This program pairs a student with a mentor for one hour a week throughout the school year. We also seek opportunities during the year to partner with various East Tennessee organizations in making home repairs.
