Pastor's Message


I want to welcome you to the Franklin Furnace Independent Baptist Church website. For over fifty years this church has been in existence here in Southern Ohio. I'm proud to have been the pastor here for thirty years. My family and the families of many in our church have seen their children grow up in this church. We have always stood for strong Bible preaching, separated lives, and dedicated service to our wonderful Lord. We are uncompromisingly and unapologetically Baptist.

C.H. Spurgeon said it like this, "We believe that the Baptists are the original Christians. We did not commence our existence at the Reformation, we were reformers before Luther or Calvin were born; we never came from the Church of Rome, for we were never in it, but we have a unbroken line up to the Apostles themselves. We have always existed from the very days of Christ, and our principles, sometimes veiled and forgotten, like a river which may travel underground for a little season, have always had honest and holy adherents."

If you desire to work passionately for our Lord, and wish to grow in our Savior, we invite you to become a member of the Franklin Furnace Independent Baptist Church.

We have your seat waiting.

Pastor Dennis Hankins
