A Small Town Church that Serves an Enormous God!
Since 1908, our church has been an epicenter of prayer and outreach for the community of Tishomingo and beyond.
God's Word commands his followers to join a body of believers and worship His name. At Tishomingo Baptist Church, we do just that.
As members, we pour love into one another's lives and show God's love and forgiveness so that we can be the example that was shown in Romans 12:5:
"So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another."

What We Believe
The Bible is God’s special revelation to us. Comprised of 66 books authored over thousands of years by dozens of authors, the Bible tells one seamless story: the story of a passionate God on a relentless pursuit to redeem His creation. We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write every word of scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error, the authoritative and inspired Word of God, and totally trustworthy and reliable for telling us what to believe and how to live. It is inerrant, infallible, and sufficient. The Bible, ultimately, is a witness to Jesus Christ, the main focus, and constantly and consistently points mankind to Him.
We believe in one God who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is infinite, and cannot always be understood by our finite understanding. He is also not limited by time or space, having created both time and space in the beginning.
ABOUT THE FATHER
He is creator, eternal, all-knowing, ever-present, and all-powerful. His character is multi-dimensional, but no facet of His character diminishes another. For example, His grace & wrath, mercy & justice, and love & jealousy all work together for good.
ABOUT THE SON, JESUS CHRIST
We believe that Jesus is the eternal Son of God who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, worked miracles, and gave us an example to follow. Fully God and fully man, He died on a cross to pay the penalty for sin that separated us from God, and then rose from the dead to reconcile us to our Creator and to free us to have a new life in Him. Now, He sits at the right hand of the Father to intercede for us. He will come again to judge the living and the dead, and His kingdom will have no end.
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that The Holy Spirit is given to every follower of Christ to guide, comfort, convict, and adopt us into the family of God. He helps us grow into Christ-likeness by producing the fruit of the Spirit in our lives, and He gives us spiritual gifts to empower us to meet the needs of God’s people and a hurting world.
We were created in the image of God to have community with Him and represent Him on earth. However, through a willful act of disobedience, we were separated from Him. We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin and gives us the opportunity to trade our sin for His righteousness through faith. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin and believe on Him and Him alone as Lord and Savior.
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him, but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
This view of anthropology, ultimately, is what separates Christianity from all other belief systems. Mankind has fallen and we cannot redeem ourselves. We are in desperate need for a Redeemer and that Redeemer came in the form of a man, the God-Man, Jesus Christ.
ABOUT THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves (1 Cor 5:15). By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer is conformed to the image of Christ as they grow in their faith.
ABOUT THE CHURCH
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The Church is not a building or an event, but, rather, the community of individuals who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making Him known to a lost and dying world.
We believe man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally in union with God is eternal life, but to be eternally separated from Him is Hell. God desires for all to have a relationship with Him, thus he made a way for mankind to spend an eternity with Him. However, He will not force people into a relationship, and, therefore, will not force people to spend an eternity in His presence. This is why we believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever.
