Simply Church

Bible Baptist is a growing community of people who meet together to worship God, study God’s word, help each other and take part in God’s mission in Mattoon, Illinois.

Sunday mornings  @ 10:30 AM

Sunday evenings  @ 6:00 PM

Wednesday Prayer Meeting @ 7:00PM


During our services we partake in worship through congregational singing (old and new hymns), giving and the Lord's Supper.



We make fellowship a priority with regular activities, small groups, and monthly Sunday meals (on the first Sunday of every month.)



Our services are built around the expository teaching and preaching of the Bible.



We preach the gospel at home and support missionaries around the world.

We'd Love For You To Visit Bible Baptist

There are dozens of churches in Mattoon, and many of them are great. So why would you want to attend Bible Baptist?

  1. At BBC, everything flows out of teaching and preaching the Bible. We put “Bible” first in our name for a reason. Our mission is to make the clear teaching of the Bible as accessible as possible in Central Illinois. We work hard at teaching the Bible and then try to let the Bible take center stage in everything we do.
  2. At BBC, we believe church should be “churchy”. We still sing hymns. We still sit in pews. We still do hokey old fashioned things like fellowship suppers, choirs and Sunday School classes. We don’t do these things because they are “traditional”, we do these things because they are valuable and biblical. As a church, we aren’t trying to be relevant. We believe Christ is always relevant.
  3. At BBC, we want to help people in every stage of life. Our church includes plenty of children, college students, single professionals, young (and not so young families), retirees and shut-ins. We all worship together, sit together, and sing together. We believe we have a duty to love and respect one another.
  4. At BBC, we want Christ to have the preeminence.” Christ is the theme of the scriptures and His gospel is the theme of all we do. We believe that all the glory belongs to Jesus and seek to glorify Him in our worship, preaching and fellowship.

If you aren’t interested in lifting up Christ, learning from the scriptures, and being a part of a group of diverse people who also love Christ and want to learn from the scriptures – you will hate Bible Baptist. But if any of those things interest you, you might find this is just the place for you and your family to grow in your walk with Jesus.

Do you Understand
The Gospel?

We would love to have you visit our church, but it’s far more important to us that you know and understand the gospel.  Please take a few minutes to watch this video of our pastor explaining this important message.
