What To Expect

Planning a visit?

We understand visiting a church for the first time can be a little nerve-wracking, and you probably have a lot of questions, so here are some answers to the most common questions first-time visitors have.

This one is pretty simple. You wear clothes. Seriously, just come dressed in whatever clothes you feel comfortable wearing. There’s no need to be worried about feeling over or under dressed. If you want to dress it up, by all means, come dressed up. If you’re more comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt, then do that. We want you to feel like you when you come to our church.

We would love for you to join us at Southwestern Baptist Church!

Times of Services:

Sunday School : 9:30am.

Sunday Morning Worship Service : 10:45am.

Our address is 1112 Cherokee Rd, Johnson City, TN 37604.

Our worship service begins with music led by our choir and worship team, followed by a message from God’s Word—the Bible—delivered by our pastor in a clear and relevant way.

We invite you to come early for coffee and donuts!

From birth to 6th grade, we have a place for your child. We place a high value on the children of Southwestern Baptist Church and have created a safe and fun environment that your children will love! In the Children’s Ministry, we use music, videos, games, and age appropriate messages to connect your child to God. When you arrive we will have volunteers who will assist you in checking in your child. We thank you for placing your child in our care.
