FBC offers dynamic programs for children, students, and adults. They believe that as followers of Christ, they are here to BE and GO. Knoxville has just about everything anyone could want in a place to call home. Combine the area’s picturesque beauty with the low cost of living and it is easy to see how people quickly fall in love with this region.

|First Baptist Concord believes the Lord has called their church to be a body of believers who together pursue clarity of purpose, passion, path and prosperity. First Baptist Concord is a thriving body of believers who welcome visitors, pour into our children and our community and seek God together in dynamic worship and through Sunday School classes and Life Groups.
The Senior Pastor is in charge of teaching and leadership development, and is able to consistently communicate vision with clarity and inspiration. He will give himself to the ministry of the Word and prayer, seeking to walk uprightly before the Lord in his personal life while seeking the mind of God on behalf of the congregation. The Senior Pastor will be the primary spokesman for the Church, as well as lead the people of FBC in the mission of seeing thousands of people BE and GO in surrounding communities, our nation and around the world.
A Master’s level degree is required from an affiliated Southern Baptist Seminary but a Doctoral degree is preferred. At least 10 years of experience as a pastor is also preferred.
