VISITING A CHURCH FOR THE FIRST TIME DOESN’T HAVE TO BE INTIMIDATING.
WE WANT YOU TO GET TO KNOW US AS MUCH AS WE WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU!
We want to do our very best to make sure your experience with Lonoke Baptist is authentic and love-filled. We aim to be an example of the life and freedom that Christ has given us. If you’re looking for a church that will walk alongside you in authenticity, we hope to be exactly that.
The main entrance of our church is located on the south side of the building on Front Street. We have greeters in place ready to help you meet people, show you where you can get plugged in, and answer any questions you might have along the way.
If you would like to contact us prior to your visit as well as find a map to our location, please visit our CONTACT PAGE and let us know you are coming so we can keep an eye out for you and your family!
SERVICE TIMES: UPDATED (5/17/20)
On May 17th, our church put into effect phase one of our re-opening plan. This phase incorporated two services. The first service takes place at 8:30 am which is preceded and followed up with a thorough cleaning and disinfecting of the worship center and all touch points. We have greeters in place to meet people in the parking lot, open doors for church-goers, apply hand sanitizer to church-goers, and to direct church-goers to assigned seating (sitting every other pew, and then alternated for the second service). The second service is at 10:45 am which will also be streamed online to our Facebook page, our website, and on the Boxcast app on Roku.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We understand that it can be nerve-wracking trying to determine what to wear to a new church… “Do they wear dresses and suits & ties?” “Are jeans acceptable?”
At Lonoke Baptist, because of the wide range of ages and differing social statuses, you will find a little bit of everything. The bottom line is that we want you to feel comfortable.
If we’re really honest about what God cares about (according to His Word), what we wear (casual or formal) is simply not something we need to spend a great deal of time being worried about. It’s not that clothing doesn’t matter to God. Clothing matters a great deal to God — just not in the same ways or for the same reasons it typically matters to us. God does explicitly tell us what he wants us to wear to church:
Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (1 Peter 5:5)
If we clothe ourselves with humility; if we “count others more significant than [ourselves],” and “look not only to [our] own interests, but also to the interests of others,” then no matter how we dress, we will honor and reflect Christ (Philippians 2:3–4).
As stated before, we want you to feel comfortable! Can you wear dresses and/or suits & ties? Yes. Can you wear jeans? Yes. Whatever you wear, we ask that you make it about coming into the presence of a Holy God in an attempt to glorify Him, and not about pleasing others or drawing attention to yourself. We want to all be able to worship the Father together freely and comfortably.
