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 5:45 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 7/25/2016

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” — Hebrews 13:5-6 (NIV)
