Join Us on the Journey

The path Jesus has set for us was never meant to be solitary. Through Christian fellowship, we give each other strength and encouragement along the way. We are glad you are interested in visiting New Town Baptist Church, where we learn, grow, and serve Jesus together.

Since 1878, New Town has proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus Christ in northwest Georgia. We believe that discipleship can transform our community and beyond. We believe people come to know Jesus through the preaching of the Gospel. We grow in Jesus through Bible study, prayer and reflection. We go for Jesus by spreading the Gospel and serving others.
