Welcome to the Rocky Head Baptist Church website. I am glad you have chosen to spend a few moments looking around, discovering our church family. As I describe Rocky Head to people, I use words like 'servants', 'loving', ‘community minded' and ‘faithful family.’ You will find confidence in an expository style of preaching-teaching with sound doctrine as our foundation. 

We are the family of God that honors God our Father by glorifying God the Son as we live in obedience to His Holy Word with the help of God the Holy Spirit daily. That means we worship Him with vigor and joy. That means we encourage prayer in church and throughout life. It means we love God and we love others with the same zeal and compassion. That means we understand the unmerited favor we have been given and we live in humble appreciation to the Giver of this gift. 

Our hope is that all who enter worship with our church family will feel loved and welcomed as guests in God's house.  Then once here, we pray that all will meet God and as a result of meeting God, give their lives to Jesus Christ and serve Him as Lord as part of our church family. Our dress code is casual and praise with a hymnal in our hands and on viewing screens. Check us out, but more importantly, seek the truth of God that can only be known when one knows Jesus. (John 14:6)

While you are browsing our website, you will learn about our ministries, leadership, and opportunities to worship/serve, but it's only a glimpse. To fully understand us, come to a worship service or to a small study group, and feel the up-close, in-person fellowship that comes when people share time together in the presence of God's Holy Spirit. Enjoy the website, then come. We’d love to meet you and know you.

Music Director

Lynn Andrews

Music is a God-given vehicle for deeper emotional expression in worship. Most people find that the emotional aspect of praise, thanksgiving, confession of sin, and petition for pardon can be more richly expressed through a setting of words to the proper music. Therefore, music, with its emotional and poetic dimensions, is especially appropriate for enhancing a celebration and enjoyment of God in worship.

In the praise ministry of RHBC we primarily lift good music with good words from our hearts to our Lord. The message in song is the channel of God’s ministry through our ears and settled in our hearts. The music, if it is properly conceived and related to the message, reinforces and makes memorable the depth of the song’s meaning.


Join us and make a joyful noise unto our Lord. He is worthy!

Children's Ministry Director

Margaret Adkinson

Our Children's Ministries strives to provide a learning environment that is tailored to fit each phase of a child's development with Christ in an thoughtful, caring and engaging way. Parents and guardians, with our hand-picked leadership team and Scriptural learning materials, we respectfully partner with you to encourage your children and teenagers wherever they stand in their level of emotional, physical, mental, and relational development - while aiming to foster a deeper faith and love in Jesus Christ.

Our teacher/leaders are thoroughly screened and trained, ready to serve God’s precious little ones. 

Mens Director

Richard Smith

Paul wrote to a young man serving God in 1st Timothy 2:8, that he wanted “the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or argument.” This is significant because Paul is advocating for all men of God to pray, worship, and lead the church in reverent peace. Faithful men are essential to the mission of the church.

That said, the men of God at Rocky Head Baptist Church invite men to become part of this special ministry. A specialness that honors our Lord and serves His will.

Join us in Sunday worship and every 3rd Saturday at 8am for breakfast and devotion. Experience a brotherhood like no other!

WMU Group

Womens Ministry

Our women’s ministry at RHBC exists to glorify God through prayerful planned activities and events for women in our church and community, which promote spiritual growth and lead women to Christ. We seek to serve women in our church family as we reach outwardly to our community of women with love and grace.

We invite you and welcome you to experience the love of Christ through our women who serve Him faithfully.

Youth Ministry

Rocky Head Youth Leadership Group

Life is difficult and confusing in today’s social circles. Our teens need faithful Christian youth leaders concerning many of life’s real issues and challenges. They need church leadership that they can trust!  Our diverse group of faithful disciples provide Christ centered support, resources, and events that celebrate life. Along with our pastors spiritual guidance, this group is special to God's heart. Come and share this experience with us together.
