Valley Creek Baptist Church is seeking a lead pastor to serve, lead, and teach our body of believers under the direction of God's Holy Spirit through the instruction of God's word.

We are a church located in the southeastern part of Hardin County. We were founded in 1872 and started as a simple white frame structure, heated by wood stoves and lit by oil lamps. A new church building was dedicated in April of 1971, with more rooms for Life Groups added in 1987. As God continued to bless the worship attendance of the church, a new worship center was built in 1995, followed by a new Family Life Center in February of 2001. The newest addition came in 2019 when God led us to open a second campus on South Wilson Road to reach an even wider range of people in our community. 

We are a missions driven church who exists to grow the kingdom of God and build up new and young disciples for Christ. We believe that the world is our mission field and strive to live everyday with that as the driving force of everything we do. Inside the church, we work to make disciples who are readily equipped to share the gospel and are comfortable doing so in any situation.
