Pastor's Page

On behalf of our faith family, I welcome you to our website.   Many exciting and wonderful things are happening here at Johnson Drive Baptist Church, and we are eagerly anticipating what God has in store for our future.  You will find many opportunities here to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ, and begin new and lasting relationships within our church family.  Regardless of your background, past experiences, or present struggles, we welcome you with open arms.  Johnson Drive Baptist Church is your place for second chances and new beginnings! 


It is our mission and heart's desire to be a beacon of hope to a hurting world.  First and foremost, we want to share with you the source of that hope:  Jesus Christ, the light of the world.  In addition, we want to be your friends.  We believe that genuine Christian fellowship is vital to our spiritual health.


If you are in the Athens area and are looking for a Bible-based, Christ-centered, and cross-focused place to worship, I invite you to join with us as we grow together through our Bible study classes and worship services.  You'll find that we truly are a small church with a big heart!


Stop by sometime soon.  You'll be glad you did!
