Briar Hill Baptist Church is a Southern Baptist Church that exists to glorify God by loving Him and showing His love. Because of that, our church has a long and distinguished history.
Our church was organized on October 7, 1888 by forty-seven adults from the Strong River Baptist Association. From our humble beginnings to the present day, our church has sought to be a refuge for God's people. From the smallest child to a global strategy of missions and discipleship, we are a church with a vision for Christ. Our vision is to lead people into an ever transforming relationship with Jesus Christ, and to build strong, Christ-centered families.
But that's only the beginning. God has given our church a far-sighted vision! Through local, statewide, nationwide, and international missions, we're praying and working towards spreading a passion for the glory of God.
Briar Hill has a bright heritage and an even brighter hope for tomorrow. Changing the world. Changing lives. One heart at a time. One family at a time. That's Briar Hill's heritage and vision.
Doctrine Matters to us. The following is a concise listing of our beliefs. You can find out more about what we believe in the About Us section of this site.

We believe in the victorious resurrections of Jesus Christ from the dead.
We believe in the visible and immanent return of Jesus Christ.
