Who We Are

North Gainesville Baptist Church is an independent, fundamental, Baptist church. Our philosophy of ministry is very simple: we want to see the lost saved and the saved growing spiritually and serving Christ. We have a vision and a determination to fulfill God's Great Commission.
Our services are centered on the preaching and teaching of God’s Word. We believe His Word is inspired and without error; therefore, it is authoritative on every subject of life and death, the sole authority for faith and practice.
We have been blessed through the winning of lost souls to Christ, families built and strengthened for the glory of God, men and woman surrendering their lives to full-time Christian service, and planting a new church building in Gainesville.
