A church on a mission

At Brister Baptist Church we are committed to reaching the world with the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ. Pursuing this goal involves all generations of our church family in various local and global mission projects. We also believe that this Good News involves even more than getting to Heaven! It teaches us how to make the most of our journey while getting there. From the Awana program through the adult Bible study groups, all ages learn the beauty of God’s promise, “With joy you shall draw water out of the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12:3). 

We are affiliated with the Baptist Missionary Association of America (BMAA).
