We are a community-oriented, family-friendly church for every age and stage of life. We strive to be a caring church that honors God and lives out the message of the Bible. The church is not a building; it’s God’s people. We are not perfect. Every one of us has challenges, problems, and sin. This is why we gather together to follow Jesus, worship God, pursue the Christian life, and be more like Christ. We care deeply about encouraging everyone to know Jesus and follow Him, every day and in every way.
The Big Timber Evangelical Church traces its beginning back to March 22, 1922, when following a revival a small group of Christians decided to plant a new church body in Big Timber. They soon purchased a small piece of property on the corner of 3rd and Bramble Street and began laying the foundation for a facility to house the church. The first service was held in the finished basement in 1925. The current Fellowship Hall and basement are the original sanctuary. A foyer addition was added onto the original building in 1999 and the new building was started in 2008 and finished in 2009.
We know that the church is not the building. Since its founding, this group of local believers has had an ongoing ministry in the community. The early church founders prayed, sacrificed, and remained faithful. They passed on to all of us a deep love for God’s word and the desire to see people come to know Jesus.
This church has always held as its core values a strong Biblical focus, prayer, a deep love for each other, and ongoing ministry in the community and world. Today, these core values can still be seen in the church family. What began with a handful of people stepping out in faith is now a church family of over 250 individuals gathering together for worship and spiritual growth each Sunday morning.
Our prayer is that we will honor God in what we do and say and that we will faithfully serve Him by serving others through caring ministry and a powerful life witness.
