Little River Baptist Church (LRBC) first began meeting in 1837. Reverend James Blythe, along with 26 other individuals, were the charter members of LRBC which was officially constituted in November 1838.

We are a Body of Believers where:

  • People can begin to build a deep relationship with Jesus Christ and with fellow Believers, people do life together in genuine community, and grow spiritually in an atmosphere of God's Grace.
  • Real problems are solved and real needs are met as people are drawn closer to God.
  • People recover from hurts, habits, and hang-ups that prevent them from enjoying meaningful relationship with God and with each other.
  • God's Word is honored as our highest authority on earth and as the source of real and abundant life.
  • People serve one another according to the way that God has shaped them with spiritual gifts, passion, talents, and experiences that are a part of how we meet the needs of others inside and outside or our church family.
  • The church matters to its community; it is one that makes visible, noticeable, and tangible differences on behalf of Christ in the real problems that exist.
  • Changed lives are celebrated; an atmosphere of freedom to grow and serve is cultivated; and people are empowered with confidence to do so.
