We are Southern Baptist Church located in Decaturville, Tennessee.  We are directly located off the courthouse square and across from the city hall of Decaturville,  in the county seat of Decatur County.   Our address is 30 E Main Street.   Decatur County is the outdoor captial of Tennessee and located along the beautiful Tennessee River in West Tennessee.

The objective of our church is to glorify God through His Son Jesus Christ and move people into the Kingdom of God through Worshiping, Growing, and Serving. We are Reaching up in our relationship with Christ, and Reaching Out with the Gospel in our relationship with mankind.

We believe God’s Word to be Inspired, Inerrant, and Infallible. God’s Word is the authority of our Fellowship at F.B.C.D. But we Worship King Jesus not King James. Your true translation is welcome here.

Our church considers the true basis for religious beliefs to be the will of God as revealed in the Bible.  In addition, as a helpful guide to fundamental Baptist beliefs and to the place of statements of the faith in  Baptist life, this church acknowledges the full report of the Committee on Baptist Faith and Mesage as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention on June 14, 2000. 

This church also acknowledges the Baptist church convenant as a compassionate, discerning, and challenging statement of ideals for the Christian life, although not as a strict code of conduct.   

We want you to Worship with us, then attend one of our small group Bible Studies and Grow with us, then find a ministry inside and outside the walls of the Church and Serve with us.  We don’t want members who don’t want to Worship, Grow, and Serve. Time is short and we are busy Glorifying God and Reaching our community for Christ.
