Our Story

Meta Baptist Mission was established by the First Baptist Church of Pikeville, Kentucky, on June 29, 1958, in a four-room store building at Meta, near Johns Creek High School, with 48 people present.

Since then, we have grown in number and in faith. We have added on to our facilities over time as our church has expanded, including our most recent addition of the Family Life Center in 2012. We have also planted two mission churches - Brushy Creek Baptist Church and Kimper Community Baptist Church.


We are so grateful for the Lord's faithfulness to His children at Meta Baptist Church over the years, and we would love for you to read more about the history of our church by clicking the link below:




Meta Baptist Church is a member of both the Southern Baptist and Kentucky Baptist Conventions, and we affirm the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.
