  • what do you...

    Believe?

    First of all, we believe in Jesus.  We believe He is the blameless Son of God who died and rose again so that we have the chance to spend our eternity with Him. For more detailed information about our core beliefs, click here.


    Have to offer my children/family?

    We have several activities for all ages.  Click here to see more.


    Do to support the local community?

    We are closely tied to the community.  This is home; our friends, families, and colleagues are here, so we want Metter to be the best it can be.  In addition to working to serve individuals in various ways, we also partner with local agencies like The Bridge and the Boys and Girls Club, other churches, The Guido Evangelistic Society, and others.  We support our local educators, First Responders,  Baptist Collegiate Ministries, and athletes, and are always seeking other ways to serve the community.


    Support financially?

    Our commitment is to be good stewards of the Lord's resources.  Much of the income and gifts we receive goes to missions efforts such as national or international offerings, and for mission trips in which our members and friends participate.  We also provide occasional benevolence support to community members. Locally we support The Bridge and Sunshine House, and we give regularly to the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention and to the Ogeechee River Baptist Association. We periodically collect gifts, money, and/or goods to donate to disaster relief and ministries such as Operation Christmas Child and Backpacks of Hope.
