Who We Are
Liberty Baptist Church is a local group of born-again, baptized followers of Jesus Christ. Liberty’s strengths are its experience and Bible knowledge as well as our friendliness and concern for each other. We teach from the Greek texts and use the King James Version of the Bible in all of our services. You will find Liberty to be one of the most knowledgeable churches in the country and uncompromising in her doctrine and beliefs.
We serve the Lord at Liberty along with about 50 members, including our Pastor, Kyle Sheeley. We are a mature church and would like to add some more youth to our membership to ensure our continued growth. Our church as a whole is very well educated in the scriptures, and about 30 of our members have a Bible degree of some sort.
We would like to extend an invitation for you to attend our services and see for yourself the soundness of our teaching.
Where We Came From
Liberty Baptist Church began as the result of the vision of Lakeview Missionary Baptist Church in Wynne, Arkansas. They acted upon their belief in the scriptural injunction to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel." With very limited resources, but a firm conviction to do God's will, they endorsed Brother Jackie Battles to establish a New Testament Church in the Stephens City area. He and his family arrived on the "field" in July of 1986. Since no suitable building was available for rent, the first meetings were held in the pastor's home. The church continued to meet there until another facility (the basement of the "old post office" in Stephens City) was located a year later in September, 1987. Liberty purchased 6.5 acres of property on highway Fairfax Pike, about 2-1/2 miles east of Stephens City. In April 1993, we moved into a new building built on this property.
Where We Are Going
Our mission is the same as the one that Jesus gave to His church in Galilee - to go into all the world and preach the gospel. We do that from the pulpit of our church in Stephens City, and in our teaching ministries. We have a desire to reach people of all ages for Christ, and we have a special interest in developing our youth into godly young men and women. We have classes specifically designed for young children during all of our regular service times, making Liberty a church that your whole family will enjoy, while growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Room For You
No matter how many members are in attendance, at Liberty Baptist Church there is always room for one more person who loves the Lord and wants to do His work. We welcome you and your family to come join us at one of our services.
