Thomas Road Baptist Church
From the very beginning Thomas Road Baptist Church has experienced Gods abundant blessings. Changed lives and dynamic growth give tribute to this fact. On June 17 1956 35 adults and their children gathered in Mountain View Elementary School in Lynchburg Virginia for the churchs inaugural Sunday worship service. That week the leaders of the church and a particularly forthcoming young man named Jerry Falwell the churchs founding pastor searched for a place to house their new church. They located a building that had been formerly used by the Donald Duck Bottling Company and established the churchs first location. In July 2006 the Thomas Road moved into its current facility and continued to grow. The new facilities allowed Thomas Road to keep expanding its ministry to the community and throughout the world. On May 15 2007 Senior Pastor Dr. Jerry Falwell finished his work on this earth and went home to his Heavenly Father. As the new pastor Dr. Falwell?s son Jonathan is continuing the vision and legacy put forth by his father. Under Pastor Jonathan Falwell?s leadership the church has experienced tremendous growth. Each month hundreds of people make the decision to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and thousands have joined our church body. Thomas Road continues to minister and spread the Gospel under the mission statement that was set forth by Pastor Jonathan ?Not I But Christ.?
