About Us

Tiberia Baptist Church was founded by Rev. George M. Barksdale Sr. with a vision of proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ. We are all about building families and relationships. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions, prayer needs or would like someone to contact you.

Come join us as we move forward into all that God has for us.

Hope to see you soon!

What We Believe

Biblical Authority

We believe the Holy Bible, both old and new testament, is the Word of God written by men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write down exactly what God wanted to communicate to us.

The Trinity

We believe there is one God who exists eternally as a Trinity of 3 persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Although each is personally distinct from each other, each member of the Trinity is fully God.

The Blood Atonement and Bodily Resurrection of Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ was crucified and died on the cross. He was resurrected from the dead and ascended to heaven.


We believe that salvation is a gift from God to man. The good works of man can never makeup for his sin. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into His life by faith.

The Lord's Supper

We believe that the importance of taking the Lord's Supper is a memorial to Christ's death and resurrection.

Divinity & Humanity of Christ Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is God who came in the flesh and that He is both human and divine.

The Second Coming

We believe that Jesus Christ will return to earth to rapture His church and judge the world.

Heaven & Hell

We believe the Word clearly sets forth the doctrines of eternal punishment in hell for the lost (unsaved) and eternal bliss and service in heaven for the saved.

The Believer

We believe that each believer of Jesus Christ has direct access to the Father through the Lord Jesus Christ and that each person must believe, be baptized, obey and answer to the Creator, for himself.

Community Outreach Ministry

Thanksgiving Food Drive:

With the economy not in its best state, many families in our community are suffering greatly. Due to this circumstance, each year we fundraise and collect food items to provide Thanksgiving Baskets to local families in need. Thanks to the generous donations, we are able to increase the number of baskets distributed each year. Thanksgiving Baskets are distributed within the week of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Coat Drive:

Coats and other winter accessories (scarves, hats and gloves) are collected throughout the year and distributed within the early winter months.
