Welcome! Hardin Baptist is a multigenerational, SBC Church that is growing, friendly, and excited about what God is doing in our Church.
The Church in short: Average attendance for worship is around 160, with a great Nursery and Children's Church.
Worship is a blend of mostly hymns with some comtemporary music, and some great soloists.
Classes (including nursery) for all ages at every service. (see schedule on left)
Located about 3 miles west of White Hall on Highway 270 (Sheridan Highway).
We love the Lord Jesus, one another, and would love to include you in our circle of family and friends.
Come see us this Sunday; let's worship Him together. ~Pastor Johnny D. Taylor
Week's report: We had our annual Harvest Festival Friday night and had our expected 250-300 people in all, including dozens of our wonderful workers (THANK YOU!). We got lots of good prospects from the forms we had them fill out at the entrance. (forms included tabs for their names to go into the door prize drawings for about 50-75 prizes.) Sunday we had a houseful again (about 150-160 in adult worship) and the Children's Church kids packed "Christmas Child Shoeboxes" to be dedicated next Sunday. I preached the second part of a series on "Raising Kids" and told everything I know about raising teenagers. That part took about 5 minutes; the rest was filler. God is faithful, and Almighty. Praise His Holy Name. "Our society is driven by fear, everything from ebola, to ISIS, to poor cell phone coverage. Yet God says if we get "the fear of the LORD" right, we need not fear anything else. All other fear is not from the LORD. Here are a couple of verses that I hope will enCOURAGE you:" "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." ~2 Timothy 1:7 "The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" ~ Psalm 27:1 "Fear not..." ~in the Bible 365 times.
Picking up speed on the new building.
God is good, all the time.
We thank God for the salvation of one of our boys at Church. He was saved Thursday night at home and came forward Sunday morning to make it public and for baptism.
God is good, all the time.
Our hearts and prayers go out to those who have lost loved ones recently. May the grace of God give you comfort and hope. You are in our prayers.
God is awesome.
If the roads are icy, stay off them.
Have "Home Church" instead. Get dressed, get your Bible, play some Christian music, have a time of worship, Bible reading, and prayer. And we'll see you at Church next time.
If in doubt, check this website.
If still in doubt, call Bro. Johnny.
Heaven's gain is our loss. Thank God for the memories of our beloved people.

Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, He will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build:
Neh 2:20 (KJV)
God's blessing on Hardin Baptist Church has resulted in a need to build additional facilities, and the Church has voted to pursue a building program. Exciting, isn't it? I am filled with anticipation and joy at the prospects of what the Almighty has in store for this Church and our area. Let's keep praying, working, loving God and one another, and expecting Him to keep pouring out His grace and blessing.
God bless us as we "arise and build". Bro. Johnny
