Our Mission & Vision

There is no doubt where the world stands with Jesus Christ. The wrong and sin going on in the world is evident. Our goal at Lonoke Baptist Church is to make sure the world knows where we stand with Jesus: closely following Him and His Word.
 
Scripture makes clear the Kingdom of God is our number one priority. We work to accomplish this task in ways people are able to come along and join in. God chooses to work through His churches and we feel honored and privileged to work alongside the Creator of this world.

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and understand we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
