Welcome to Lake Shipp Baptist Church We are a Community who firmly believes in Gods word. Come journey with us. I am so glad you have taken the opportunity to check out Lake Shipp via our website. As you look through the pages to get a feel for what visiting Lake Shipp will be like, let me share a few thoughts with you.

If you are looking for a perfect church, we are not it. Lake Shipp is full of messed up people who find our commonality in the saving work of Christ. We don’t want you to have it all together before you show up. Come as you are!

We believe that all age groups are vitally important to the life of the church. We find value when the oldest to the very youngest, and everyone in between, can do life together through the fellowship of the church.

If you are thinking…”I have questions..” GOOD! We like questions. If you are thinking…”I don’t know about this whole “church” or “Jesus” thing..” GREAT! Just come check it out. We will do our best to figure out the answers together. Come do life together with us.

In Christ,

Joe Lemmons pastor

Lead Pastor

A Church for All Generations

Lake Shipp Values the Generations. There is a place for everyone. Whether just beginning life or living out the golden years there is something for each phase of life. Age based Small groups we call “Community Groups” form the starting point for each of these ministry areas.

Youth (6th-12th Grade)

Community Groups on Sunday mornings, Large group gathering on Wednesday nights, and lots of community activities through the year!

Young Adults

This ministry focus is on people who are in the early stages of building their lives, from “post High School” training through the first stages of adulthood, whatever shape that takes.


A community of adults, sharing one another’s burdens, caring for each other’s needs, lifting and encouraging one another in walking life.
