Our fellowship of believers began in 1874 under a brush arbor beside the Poplar Springs spring, just down the road from the current church campus. From 1874 until today, Poplar Springs Baptist Church exists to make disciples of all nations and serve the families of our community. There are many reasons that Poplar Springs Baptist is a special church, but we are distinctively:
We depend upon the saving truth of the Gospel for salvation and for every-day life as we seek to become intimate followers of Jesus Christ.
Our church desires to partner with families to disciple their children. Our role is to equip and encourage parents to lead their children to Jesus and disciple them into mature followers of Christ.
The entire family is valued at Poplar Springs Baptist Church. It is not uncommon to see a baby sitting in the lap of a senior adult lady, or a teenager sitting with their parents. Children are welcome in all of our services and events!
4. Missions Focused
We desire to reach our community, nation, and world with the saving message of the Gospel. We are focused on Going, and teaching the members of our fellowship to love Going. We believe we are commanded to Go across the street to our neighbor, and all the way to our neighbors across the world.
