Indian Fork Baptist Church is a Southern Conservative Baptist Church designed to meet your needs in the 21st century. Were a spiritual family who desires to reach the lost and welcome you into our family atmosphere? Were a spiritual family of friendly, Joyful, and caring people who have discovered the joys in walking with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  We are people just like you. We invite you to come, check us out, and discover the difference. Indian Fork Baptist Church is a Bible-focused congregation dedicated to teaching and reaching the Bagdad, Kentucky area and the community and world fulling the Great Commission (Matt. 28-18-20). 

Lives are changed and we at IFBC believe in the mission work of the church, to deliver a life-changing message of Jesus Christ.

Our Mission is simple:

  • Believe: in the word of God.
  • Commit: To living life to God and serving His Church,
  • Go: Go forth and tell others about Jesus.

As a Conservative Southern Baptist Church, we hold only to what the scriptures proclaim the church to be, act, engage, and live by. We concentrate on teaching and preaching the Bible according to true meaning from Genesis to Revelation. We believe if we concentrate on building disciples through the word of God, More people can be reached for the Glory of God and not ourselves. We at IFBC strive to help people develop a balanced approach to the biblical approach. Worship, fellowship, evangelism, discipleship, service to God through our church and in our lives.

Discover the Difference!

Have you ever wondered why lots of people aren’t active in church these days? Could it be too often?

  • Sermons are boring and they don’t relate to our lives?
  • Preachers water down the word instead of expository truth from God’s word?
  • Church’s at times seem only interested in your money?
  • Childcare and personal care are just not up to par?
