About Us

We are Clarke-Venable.  And, we have been making disciples in Newton County since 1836.  Some of us have been here for decades.  Some of us are newcomers.  Some of us are from families that have been part of this Church for eight generations.  Some of us are children and some are students.  Some of us have experienced the best of times.  Some of us carry the marks of pain and suffering.  But one thing is for sure-each Clarke-Venable follower of Jesus has been radically changed by the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Now, the heart of everyone who has been changed has the passionate desire to take this good news message of Jesus to every person on our street, in our county, and to the ends of the earth.  Because of the Gospel of Jesus more than 7 billion people alive on the planet today now have hope of eternal life.

At a time in our culture when many seem to drift away from the Church we are doubling down on our efforts to make disciples. We are strengthening our ministries, expanding our facilities, and sharpening our ministry tools to reach more, teach more, make more disciples, and take the gospel to those who have not yet heard the name Jesus.  We are always praying.  We are always giving.  We are always going.  We are Clarke-Venable Baptist Church.  We are followers of Jesus Christ.
