About Us

What is an Independent Fundamental Baptist?


As an Independent Baptist Church we are free from any formal associations with other churches. By God's leading and through the authority of our pastor, our church "associates" and works with other churches, ministries, and missionaries.


By definition, a fundamentalist is one who believes and adheres to basic, core, essential teachings. We adhere to the fundamental approach to Christianity which believes that the exact meaning of every word in the Bible is the true meaning. Being fundamental means that we believe the whole Bible is divinely inspired, supernaturally preserved, and the authoritative Word of God for faith and practice.


This means that we hold to the Baptist Distinctives. See our page labeled the Baptist Distinctives for more.

Pastor: Bro. Stacy Prater

A Message from Our Pastor

"I was raised in Brookland, AR and continue to reside there with my wife, Wendy, and daughter, Sophia. On October 31, 1999, I accepted the gift of Salvation and surrendered to preach the Gospel on July 11, 2000.

The Lord led me to Bible Baptist Church on April 1, 2006 where I have served ever since. In 2012, God blessed us with the ability to purchase some property. We are working toward building a new church on this property as soon as God allows it.

I would like to encourage you to come to our church and see the work God is doing there. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me."
