Pastor’s Page

My name is Bobby Utley, and I’m the pastor of New Testament Independent Baptist Church. Let me give you a brief history of our church. Initially there were 6 families who desired a place they and others could worship God in spirit and in truth. One Saturday night 6 of us men met on the property which is now the location of our church. There we prayed and received assurance from the Lord Jesus Christ that he was going to give us the land. Then by the mighty hand of God, we were able to purchase it and have since acquired additional land that joined ours. It was by faith and trust in our Saviour that we received this blessing. We prayed and asked God for the mountainous acreage behind the church so that we might build a camp meeting arbor. By God’s grace, we received it and have had many glorious services with numerous souls saved and lives changed.

Our first service was held in the old parsonage on a Sunday night in August 1969. There were 23 people who met and worshipped the Lord in that first service. While our membership has fluctuated over the years, we have had the opportunity to see many souls saved through the ministries of our church, both on the home mission field and abroad.

We would like to invite you to join us for one of our services. You will find a congregation of friendly, caring, and Christ honoring believers.

Hoping to see you soon!
Pastor Bobby Utley
