Hoopers Creek Baptist Church
A taditional, old-time Christian church Fletcher, NC
My name is Phillip Youngblood, and I am the new pastor of Hooper’s Creek Baptist Church. Dr. Lawrence Rhodes was the pastor at Hooper’s Creek for 47 years. May 18th, 2012, he went home to be with the Lord. Pastor Rhodes was not just the pastor at the Church; but he was also my grandfather. We miss him! I am proud of my heritage and God has miraculously placed me here to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God has blessed me with a wonderful family. My wife, Shasha, and I got married in 2000, we have three children: Cassidy, MaryGrace and Zachary. We live in Henderson County; we love to go camping, and on occasion get to go to the Lake. I thank God for a Church where people are excited about serving, celebrating, and praising Jesus Christ. Come worship with us as we move forward, “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our Faith.” If you are looking for a church where there is old-fashioned singing and the Word of God is preached, we would love to have you.

Nichole BumgarnerWell that's not what I saw at all whenmy son and I went there, we were greeted with friendly hand shakes and small talk, they let me know that they were glad that we were there that made me feel really really good because I do not like to be around people that I don't know but I felt right at home just as if I had known these people for a long time not overwhelming at all and what a beautiful service. He shared it sure touched home, to each is own and you know about your religion and all. , I'm sure that some of those people or myself might be a little nervous when and if we visited your church. but what I do taking consideration at my home church, we had to start getting security guards and things because of all the church bombings and all the bad things that we're going on at churches we had to wait for the congregation to come in and sit down and we locked our church doors because of the shootings and everything so they were just as scared of you as you were of them I'm sorry but I just feel like maybe you read into it too much and I'd sure hate to see you not give it another chance he's offering you a gift of eternal life if only you believe in him and accept and as your savior I myself have had a very long hard life and when I gave my life to the Lord my life turned around and now you wouldn't even know who I was so without the Lord in my life I don't know where I'd be today I just have to asked you to please give it another chance give God a chance he wants to take care of you he is an awesome God he loves you very much try maybe at another church there's so many awesome churches and I myself believe without a shadow of a doubt in my mind because so many things have happened in my life that somehow someway I made it through I always make it through my prayers are answered it's a feeling that you cannot mistake feeling of the Lord is something amazing I sure would like to know that you'll give it another try I don't know much about your belief's but I know that everything was completely normal for what I'm used to in a Baptist church but maybe it was the fact that you'd never been to a Baptist church i believe there was a huge misunderstanding. I am a Christian I am a Baptist I guess for someone that hasn't given their life to the Lord it might have been a little fearful for you and also there were break-ins I remember around that time when that happened they had to make sure that everyone was safe including you guys you can't hold that against them but as far as the crying and praying they poured their heart out praying for you they were praying for your salvation If you haven't already, I pray that one day you Except the gift of salvation and you can look back and have tears of joy over that day. God Bless you
MarcusAre you looking to get held against your will or illegally searched? Come on down to Hooper's Creek Baptist Church. These people are insane. Below is a little summed up story of how I felt like I was going to die at this church that I visited on a whim. Let me explain. My friend is a Lutheran, and I'm agnostic. My friend has wanted to know what baptist service was like for quite sometime. On the way home (It was a Thursday) we saw the Hooper's Creek Baptist Church had a lot of cars outside. We figured hey! what not check it out? But that was a MISTAKE! We entered the front door and saw that they were doing play practice. We figured "lets not bother them". So as we're leaving going down the steps, the whole congregation pours out the front door of the building. Scared for our LIVES, I said, lets not go around to the car, they will attack us or something...they looked CRAZY. We walked down the road a bit, and more people just kept coming out the building. Pretty soon it was clear we had to go back for our car now. As we're going back the whole church surrounds us and starts YELLING at us. "Ya'll boys got any weapons on yous??" one man shouts. They wouldn't let us say anything and just kept shouting and they searched us and took our wallets and our IDs. I tell the man "this is ridicules" to which one of the younger men 'lee' says "HEY YOU RESPECT YOUR ELDERS!" At this point we think its clear. These people are going to kill us. But then...out of no where this guy comes out and says "...whata ya'll boys know about jesus?" My heart sank. I was 100% sure these people were going to kill us. I start to stutter. "he...he was a guy...?" I say confused and scared. "that's it?" the man said. my friend starts telling them about jesus birth to death pretty much summing up the entire bible in 5 seconds. They tell us "you boys are gonna come in and we're gonna pray for you" he said without giving us a choice. They force us down in front of the alter and everyone puts their hands all over us and they began to pray...and cry and pray....and cry more... IT WAS WEIRD for a non christian to go through this crap. WE WERE TERRIFIED. Anyway, they showed us some of their awful play by force and then cry prayed on us for another 10 or 15 minutes. The crap was weird. Eventually they let us go and explained that they have been having break ins. So wait...let me get this straight. Someone visits your church when there is like 30 cars outside? And you assume they are ROBBERS?are you kidding me? Funny thing is. I did a review similar to this on facebook and they deleted their facebook page. I guess you can't delete this one. People need to be warned about this sort of thing. Did I mention you guys are C-R-A-Z-Y CRAZY?
