Who We Are
Liberty Baptist Church is a local group of born-again, baptized followers of
Liberty’s strengths are its experience and Bible knowledge as well as our
friendliness and concern for each other. We teach from the Greek texts and use
the King James Version of the Bible in all of our services. You will find
Liberty to be one of the most knowledgeable churches in the country and
uncompromising in her doctrine and beliefs.
We serve the Lord at Liberty along with about 60 members, including our
Pastor, Jackie Battles. We are a mature church and would like to add some more
youth to our membership to ensure our continued growth. Our church as a whole
is very well educated in the scriptures, and about 30 of our members have a
Bible degree of some sort.
We would like to extend an invitation for you to attend our services and see
for yourself the soundness of our teaching.
Where We Came From
Liberty Baptist Church began as the result of the vision of a small church in
Arkansas. They acted upon their belief in the scriptural injunction to "Go into
all the world and preach the gospel." With very limited resources, but a firm
conviction to do God's will, they endorsed Brother Jackie Battles to establish
a New Testament Church in the Stephens City area. He and his family arrived on
the "field" in July of 1986. Since no suitable building was available for rent,
the first meetings were held in the pastor's home. The church continued to meet
there until another facility (the basement of the "old post office" in Stephens
City) was located a year later in September, 1987. Liberty purchased 6.5 acres
of property on highway Fairfax Pike, about 2-1/2 miles east of Stephens City.
In April 1993, we moved into a new building built on this property.
Where We're Going
Our mission is the same as the one that Jesus gave to His church in Galilee -
to go into all the world and preach the gospel. We do that from the pulpit of
our church in Stephens City, and in our teaching ministries. We have a desire
to reach people of all ages for Christ, and we have a special interest in
developing our youth into godly young men and women. We have classes
specifically designed for young children during all of our regular service
times, making Liberty a church that your whole family will enjoy, while growing
in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Room for You
No matter how many members are in attendance, at Liberty Baptist Church there
is always room for one more person who loves the Lord and wants to do His work.
We welcome you and your family to come join us at one of our services.
