Welcome to Iotla Baptist Church!

We are delighted that you have chosen to visit us.  Thank you for taking this time to learn more about us and our ministries.  We are confident that you will find here all the information you will need to get connected with our church family.20150108_125544_resized-169x300
Iotla Baptist Church is a body of Jesus-followers who live and serve in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Macon County, North Carolina.  Our place of worship is located on a hilltop overlooking the Iotla Valley, and the name of our church fits our setting perfectly, for “Iotla” is the Cherokee name for a “pleasant valley.” 
We invite you to worship God with us here in our “pleasant valley” every Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m.  We also have a less formal, Bible study focused service on Sunday evenings at 6:00 p.m.  On Wednesday nights we enjoy a Fellowship Supper that begins at 5:30 p.m., and this is followed by activities for all ages.
If you are new to Macon County and Franklin, and if you are looking for a church home in this community, we provide an opportunity at the close of every Sunday Morning worship service for persons to present themselves for membership by profession of faith in Jesus Christ, by letter of recommendation from a church of like faith and practice, or by Christian statement.
Again, thank you for visiting us on the Web, and after exploring our site, if you still have questions, please contact our church office at 828-524-7167 or use our contact page.  God bless you.

A Bible Verse for Today 6/27/2017

Sing the praises of the LORD, you his faithful people; praise his holy name. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. — Psalm 30:4-5 (NIV)
