Pastor Benson blog

Welcome to the East Sylva Baptist Church website. I believe that the world wide web is a vital tool in sharing our passion for the Gospel and compassion for people in our community and around the world. I encourage you to visit often to learn how God is working at East Sylva Baptist. Our faith grows and matures most effectively in relationships with other believers, so I invite you to explore our ministries on the web and then join us at East Sylva to engage in face-to-face fellowship and discipleship. As you do, I pray that God will reveal your next steps in your relationship with Him.

What We Believe

Our church is missionary in spirit, extending the Gospel through our organized religious channels to the entire world.
