Church Overview

Yellow Creek Baptist Church is a Southern Baptist church that can be described as urban-adjacent located in the rural setting of Cumberland City, Tn. As such, the church embodies a blue-collar ethos. The church’s membership consists primarily of hard-working, salt-of-the-earth people who enjoy the rural lifestyle. However, while the church is rural in setting, it is not rural in opportunity.

The church sits about 20 minutes from Clarksville, Tennessee. Clarksville is the fifth largest city in Tennessee with a population of 170,000. Clarksville is also one of the fastest-growing areas in the state. Over the next decade, Clarksville’s urban sprawl will stretch all the way to Cumberland City. As of today, there are 9,056 people within 4 miles of the church. A full demographics study of the community is provided below.

Concerning the attitudes of the membership of the church, we are a warm and welcoming body of believers who love the Lord and have a deep appreciation for His word. We affirm that the Bible is absolute, inerrant, and divinely inspired. We are passionate about investing in the next generation and loving on our kids and youth. We love to gather for worship. And we are zealous about reaching our community with the Gospel. We fully affirm the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.

Concerning the programming in the church, we are currently undergoing a strategic planning process to discover God’s preferred future for Yellow Creek. For more information on this process, see Bro. Shane Moore. Beyond this, we host most of the programs that one would normally find in Southern Baptist Churches, ie. Sunday School, VBS, etc. We also host multiple outreach events that draw 1000-2000 people to our campus.
