Thompson Springs Baptist Church
Who we are
Thompson Springs is a friendly fellowship of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are physically located in the Taylor Community of southeast Bradley County TN, but we seek to serve our Lord and Savior throughout the world. We are part of the Southern Baptist Convention, Tennessee Baptist Convention, and the Bradley Baptist Association, but most importantly we are people who know that the ONLY hope to be found is in the Lord Jesus Christ. We exist to show the world the Hope of Jesus Christ, so that others may come to know Him as their personal Lord and Savior.
We believe that we are to strive to bring Glory and Honor unto our LORD in all we do. Whether it is Sunday school, worship service, or serving in our community. We strive to do everything for the Glory of God. We are not perfect, but the great part about having a relationship with the Lord Jesus is that He forgives our failures.
