Pastor Shelby & Debby Smith


Welcome friends!

I have been blessed with the honor of serving as Pastor of Walter Hill First Baptist Church since January, 2001.  My wife Debby and I have three grown daughters and are also blessed with five grandchildren and one more on the way!

Thanks for taking the time to discover more about us. Our church gathers on Sundays and Wednesdays to encourage each other to love God and each other more. We sing, pray, and study God’s Word together. We realize we aren’t perfect, yet we strive to become more of who Jesus wants us to be.

Growing as a Christian is an everyday learning experience. We want to become the arms and feet and voice of our Lord to a world that is hurting. We truly believe that Jesus is the greatest hope for families today.

It is our desire to honor the Lord in everything we do by really loving Him and sharing His love with others. We are involved in carrying out His mission to hurting people in our county, state, neighboring states, and even around the world.

We preach and teach the Bible as God’s inerrant Word. We believe it applies to every problem and need in our lives. We strive to be His “disciples” and to “make disciples” of others.

Jesus is our personal Lord and Savior.

We believe in what He did – He died on the cross to pay for our sins.

We believe in Who He is ~ He is the Son of God and Ruler of our lives.

We believe in what He says ~ His instruction is the priority in our lives.

We believe He is coming back again and we are eagerly looking forward for that day! We sincerely hope you will join us!
