A Church for Everyone

Our Mission

"The chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever."  The mission of Genesis Baptist Church is to follow the Holy Spirit and seek to lead people to a saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and to disciple them, that they might achieve this "chief end" for their own life.

Genesis Baptist Church is affiliated with the Tennessee Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention.  We accept THE BAPTIST FAITH AND MESSAGE adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention on June 14, 2000 as a summary of what we believe concerning the great truths of Scripture.

Where We Meet

Genesis Baptist Church has met at 205 East Madison Ave. in Athens, Tennessee since May 1, 2011.  We have recently purchased a building that formerly housed the American Cinema and are presently in the process of remodeling that building to make it a suitable and comfortable home for our church family.  We hope to be in our building by late spring or early summer at the latest.  We invite you to visit us until then at our present location.
