Who we are
Thomasville Road Baptist Church is a group of people from all walks of life who are being TRANSFORMED by the power of Jesus Christ. Every Sunday, we have about 1,200 people on our campus to WORSHIP God and learn to apply biblical truths in our everyday lives. Most Sundays, we have over 900 people who CONNECT with each other in small groups we call Sunday school. At TRBC, we share our lives and challenge each other to walk faithfully with Christ. We are passionate about sharing the love of Christ by caring for each other, SERVING, and positively impacting our community and world.
What to expect
Don’t feel like you have to “fix yourself” before you come to TRBC. Just come as you are! Feel free to dress as casual or dressy as you want. You will see people in shorts and a T-shirt, in slacks and a button-down, and people dressed in their “Sunday best”.
We all have good and bad days. But we know Jesus loves us whether we have our lives together or not. There are no perfect people here. We all struggle. Bottom line: we want you to be comfortable and feel welcomed, loved and accepted.
About our services
We have two Sunday morning services, one at 9:15 am and another at 10:45 am. Both worship services are identical and offer children and preschool programs. We have Sunday school classes meeting during both worship hours for all age groups. Our Sunday school class for singles meets during our first worship hour and our college-age Sunday school class meets during our second worship hour.
Services are family oriented and feature contemporary worship songs, as well as traditional songs and hymns, and a life-changing message (listen to previous sermons HERE).
We also have a very modern worship service every Sunday evening at 6:30 called Driven. The purpose of Driven is to reach the 80,000 college students in the Tallahassee area. It’s chruch for college students.
Getting in the door
As you drive in, let one of the parking attendants know you are visiting and they will help you get to the right place. Parking for visitors is available in front of the Worship Center, as well as in the back of our campus. After you park, a good place to start is the Welcome Desk located in the foyer of the Worship Center.
If you have children to drop off before the service, Preschool is on the first floor and K-5th is on the second floor of our Children’s Building. If your children are in 6th grade or above, they can join friends in the Youth Building at the back of our campus.
Spend 10-15 minutes walking around TRBC. We have lots to see and this is a great way to meet people. At any point, you can ask one of our volunteers, wearing a blue name tag, or someone at the Welcome Desk, for directions or any other questions you may have.
OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
• In essential beliefs — we have UNITY
“There is one Body and one Spirit…there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all…” Eph. 4:4-6
• In non-essential beliefs — we have LIBERTY
“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls… So then each of us will give an account of himself to God… So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.” Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22
• In all our beliefs — we show CHARITY (love).
“…If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains — but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.” 1 Corinthians 13:2 (Ph)
