We are about serving God by sharing the love of Christ with everyone. Friends, family, neighbors, community, and strangers.
We go out into the world and love on the unsaved, and share the Good News of salvation, that is free and available to anyone.
A history over 100 years in the making...
Established in 1873, Frazier is a longstanding part of the community, but also a new church in many ways– a majority of the people who call Frazier their church home joined in the last 15 years. God has grown us from a "small country church" to a regional church made up of people from at least eight different communities.
All are welcome at Frazier as a place to serve the Lord.
Our worship blends traditional and contemporary music. We believe it's important to worship with the traditional hymns our parents and grandparents sang, as they're a part of our heritage, but also include contemporary songs with great theological truths, equally pleasing to God, and instrumental in the worship of his church.
"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen." (Ephesians 20-21 NIV)
Who we are
We serve God by sharing Christ's love with everyone – friends, family, community and strangers. We go out into the world and show love to the unsaved, sharing the Good News of salvation, that's free and available to anyone. We exist to bring glory to God, as a church, and individually. We believe Jesus is alive and active in the life of every believer, so we encourage one another to grow in their relationship with him, and make him known to all people.
Home & Abroad
Frazier is mission-minded and we take seriously Christ's command to be witnesses locally, nationally and around the world. For decades we've sent mission teams to seven states and five countries. Annually 20-25% of the monies given to the church is redirected to local, state, national, and international missions.
In January 1873 God called 4 men and a woman to begin a church that would meet at the No.5 school house in the Frazier community. After the first meeting they continued meeting for several days, and 30 people were added to the church.
That was the beginning of Frazier Baptist Church. God continues to work in, and through that church today.
Like nearly all rural churches Frazier began as a "Family Church," meaning it's members were the families who lived in the community. These families had deep roots, and strong relationships. Some descendants of those early church members are still active in the church, and their relationships are still strong. Frazier is blessed to have people who have who have been part of the church for 60, 70, even 80 years.
The good things happening in the church today are being built on the foundation of the faithfulness of previous generations. Over the last 15- 20 years God has been working, changing the church from being a "small country church," to being a regional church drawing people from 8 or more communities; it's rural setting makes for easy access from all directions.
The majority of the people who call Frazier "their church" have started coming here in the last 20 years. So now Frazier is blessed not only with those people who have been here most, if not all of their life, but also many new people who have come to know and love the Lord, and worship him as part of the Frazier family.
With the new people come fresh, new relationships, and fresh, new ideas for serving the Lord.
Of course, a church with a history as rich and long as Frazier has seen many changes over the years. The church programs now include an active Student and Children's Ministry, Discipleship opportunities, and involvement in missions locally, nationally, and internationally. The pastoral staff has changed from a "part-time" preacher to three full-time staff members.
The building where the church meets has changed from a school house, to sharing a building with the Methodists, to owning their own one room building that would seat 80 people, to a sanctuary that seats 400, and a Family Life Center with classrooms and a gym.
There have been lots of changes over the years, but through all of them, God has been faithful, working to reveal himself, and grow people who wholeheartedly love, and live for him.
God is still working, and the best days of the church are still ahead.
