North Asheville Baptist Church has long stood as a testimony to God’s faithfulness since our church was called into existence in 1910. First located on Forsythe Street in North Asheville, the church was a satellite of First Baptist Church of Asheville. NABC grew in membership and influenced the community with the Gospel of Christ.
As the generations passed, NABC continued to provide its members with solid Biblical discipleship as the church body reached out to a growing community with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
In 1969 the church body began to grow and a need for a larger facility to reach more people with the Gospel became apparent. This led NABC to go forward in faith as a 3.5 acre tract of land was purchased near highway 19/23 and UNC-Asheville. Construction ensued and on Easter Sunday, 1972 NABC held its first worship service at that location.
In August of 1989 Jim Dykes was called as pastor. The years proceeding have been ones of significant growth and change. In 1994 NABC purchased eight acres at our current location. The first service was held January 1, 1996 in the brick building. Such growth occurred that two Sunday morning services were required and eight more acres of land were purchased due to projected growth.
In 2001, the church fellowship moved once again, into a multi-purpose building and continues to meet there today. The brick building now houses North Asheville Christian School, established in 1999 as a ministry of NABC. NACS partners with parents in the discipling and instruction of nearly 200 children in K4-12th grades each year.
We look forward to our move to the 100 acres six miles north of our current location. Our relocation plans will enable our church family to reach thousands of people with the Good News of God’s love for them in Christ! Moving forward, we will have space for an ever-expanding church and school ministry, including large worship space, conference facilities, classrooms, counseling ministries, recreational fields, gymnasium, worship pavilions, prayer walks, and much more! All, with the ultimate goal of equipping God’s people of all ages to reach more people for Jesus!
