Serving LaGrange, Troup County and the surrounding areas since 1948, Franklin Road Baptist Church is a warm, loving and caring Southern Baptist congregation whose core values are captured in 4 words: Love, Lead, Lend and Live!
Love God and others.
Jesus taught, “Love the Lord your God with ALL your heart and with ALL your soul and with ALL your strength and with ALL your mind; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Luke 10:27) We take that seriously at FRBC. We LOVE GOD through our worship and serve Him and others because He first gave His all in love for us.
Lead our hearts.
Jeremiah 17:9 says, “The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” Because of this and other truths about the human heart, we desire to LEAD our hearts rather than FOLLOWING our hearts as many in the world do. We allow the truth of the Word of God to determine our direction instead of our fickle human feelings.
Lend a hand.
At FRBC, we want to be known for serving our community in a way that reflects the love of God for mankind. We strive to be involved in many ways so that others can see the difference Jesus Christ has made in our lives and can make in their life. That leads us to serve in local elementary schools, in the community clothes closet and food pantry as well as many other ways across Troup County.
Live to influence.
Above everything else, our goal is to influence others toward Jesus Christ. We desire to share the good news of salvation with the people in our world each day. There is no higher priviledge than being an “ambassador” for Jesus Christ. There is no greater blessing than seeing a friend, neighbor, co-worker or new acquaintance recieve the life-changing and free gift of salvation.
