About SFBC

Sneedville First Baptist Church

We are a Christ-centered congregation of Southern Baptist Christians, committed to reaching our city, state, and world with the life-changing message of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

We are located in Eastern Tennessee, in the city of Sneedville.  Our mission is to fulfill the Great Commission, as described in Matthew 28:20, by connecting to and leading people in an authentic and growing relationship with Jesus Christ.  This is accomplished by creating an environment of worship where God is at the center and where people are equipped and encouraged through His perfect Word and Will.

We are united with the Tennessee Baptist Convention and with the churches of the Holston Valley Baptist Association in supporting missions, both local and foreign.

We invite you and your family to join us for traditional worship and fellowship at SFBC.  You are invited to come and share in the wonderful heritage and history of service to our Lord!  There is always a place for you and your family at Sneedville First Baptist Church.  We look forward to seeing you!

Sneedville First Baptist Church was admitted into the Tennessee Baptist Association in 1829 as Union Baptist.  It was later called Greasy Rock Baptist and became a charter member of the Mulberry Gap Association.  The church was named Sneedville Baptist in 1858, then Sneedville First Baptist in the 1970's.

The church has been a member of the Holston Valley Association since 1972.  Since its beginning, the church has been strong in its support of the Sneedville community as well as residents of Hancock County.  The church has always supported local, domestic, and international missions.

SFBC adopts the beliefs of the Baptist Faith and Message of the Southern Baptist Convention as a confession of faith.

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

Psalm 122:1
