About Us

Who We Are:

Fork Union Baptist Church is a community of Christians who are striving to glorify God by developing Kingdom-focused Disciples in our area who have an intimate loving relationship with God and one another, who are growing in their knowledge of Him, and who are actively serving Christ in our community and throughout the world.

We are also, unashamedly, free and faithful Baptists, who hold dear four basic freedoms that have been practiced by like-minded Christians since the beginning of our Faith:

Bible Freedom: The Bible – under the lordship of Christ – must be central in the lives of His followers, who are both free and obligated to study and follow the Scriptures.

Soul Freedom: Every person has the right and responsibility to deal with God directly and personally, without intervention by any other party.

Church Freedom: Local churches are free to determine their membership and their leadership. Local churches are not subject to the dictates of any other organization, state or national.

Religious Freedom: We affirm the historic right to freedom of religion, freedom for religion, and freedom from religion. Caesar is not Christ, and Christ is not Caesar.
