Sinking Creek Baptist Church is oldest church in the state of Tennessee.  It was founded in 1772 and is listed in the Tennessee Historical Registry.  We welcome you to join us each week as our pastor, Rev. Jayson Hoagland, leads by God’s calling and preaches God’s Word with boldness.
We hope this web site helps you learn more about who we are, what we believe, and connect to what is going on in our church.

  • We believe all scripture is supernaturally inspired of God and because the scriptures are inspired, they are authoritative, without error, and constitute the infallible revelation of God to all mankind.
  •  We believe there is one, and only one, living and true God and that  He is the creator of all things.
  • We believe in the Holy Trinity: God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  •  We believe all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
  • We believe there is only one way to heaven, and that is through Jesus Christ the Son
  • We believe Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a perfect sinless life, and that He died on the cross as an atonement for our sin.
  • We believe Jesus Christ was raised from the dead on the third day and that He is alive today, seated at the right hand of the Father.
  •  We believe mankind is saved by grace through faith
  •  We believe Christ will return soon, as promised in scripture.
  • We believe in the resurrection of the body, both in the case of the just and the unjust
  • We believe Heaven and Hell are real, and in eternal life of the saved and the eternal punishment of the lost as described in Scripture
  • We believe in the eternal security of the believer.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
