Our Story

Wellborn Baptist Church was founded in 1910 as a place where Christ followers could gather to Worship Jesus, Grow in His grace and truth, and Go out into the world sharing His love.  We would love to have you and your family come and worship with us at Wellborn.  Check out our past and live worship services on our facebook page and make your plans to visit.

Our Beliefs

We believe that the Bible is true and tells the redemptive story

of God and His great love for mankind

We believe there is one God existing in three persons: 

Father, Son, Holy Spirit

We believe God made you and that He loves you. 

We believe God is absolutely perfect, we are not,

and that sin separated us from Him.

We believe God took on flesh; the virgin birth of Jesus.

We believe Jesus lived a perfect life that we could not.

We believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty of our sin.

We believe that Jesus rose from the dead

to offer us true and eternal life.

We believe that Jesus offers this grace gift of eternal and abundant life to everyone who believes and confesses that Jesus is Lord.

We believe that Jesus has called all believers to worship Him,

love one another, and to go tell others about Jesus.

We believe one day Jesus is coming back again.

We believe you are loved by God and we would love an

opportunity to answer any questions you might have.  

Please feel free to visit, call or email us and

we will get back with you as soon as possible.
