Everyone, yes everyone, is welcome!

We are a welcoming, affirming, diverse congregation of students, children, youth, and adults.  We are Baptist in history and progressive in our theology.  We partner with sister Baptist churches around the world through the Alliance of Baptists.  If you are looking for community where all are welcome to worship and serve God, we are here for you!  

Sunday Worship at 11am


To worship something or someone is to ascribe worth to the object or person. When we take time to worship God, we are saying God is worthy of our time and attention. Worship reminds us that God is more than we can comprehend, and yet right beside us present at all times. We can worship God anywhere and at anytime, with a group of people, or by ourselves. Setting aside a regular time to worship God keeps our hearts focused. Worshipping within a community of faith encourages, challenges, and leads us in ways we would have never imagined. You can sing a song of praise to God by yourself. You can read scripture and pray alone. But how much more full is the music when it is sung with others. How much depth can be found in the scriptures when studied with others. And how much more encouraging it is to voice our prayers and petitions to God with one another. We hope that you will join with us in the praise and worship of God each Sunday morning at 11 am. 

Current COVID Protocols at CBC

Cullowhee Baptist is committed to the worship of God, Bible study, discipleship, and the health of those who join us. We celebrate that vaccinations against COVID-19 are available for everyone over the age of 5!  We have a group of medical professionals in our congregation who the local impact of COVID and aim to keep us healthy.

As of March 15, the local Jackson County rates of infection and spread of the COVID virus as reported by the CDC is in the low category. In addition, the WCU community spread and infection rates are vastly reduced from earlier this year. As a result, we are currently practicing a "mask optional" policy. We encourage worshippers to wear or not wear a mask as you are comfortable, and we ask everyone to respect the practice of others. At the same time, we expect to following good social distancing when seated in the sanctuary as well as while coming and going through the church. If the CDC indicates a spike in transmissions, we will return to a "masks required" practice.
