New to Holly Springs


You’re new? Don’t worry, all of us were at one point! We hope you discover that Holly Springs Baptist Church has a place for you. We are a family-centric, Southern Baptist church that believes in the authority of Scripture as the only basis for our lives, our worship, and our talents! We are not a perfect people, actually just the opposite. We are people who know what the grace of Jesus looks like and our goal is to spread that message of hope to our city, our state, our nation, and the world!

Here are some answers to frequent questions we hear around here:


    Worship Times (Preschool, Kids, Youth, and Adults)

    9:00 AM Sunday School- Connect Groups

    10:00 AM Sunday Worship

    6:30 PM Wednesday Night


    From Nacogdoches:

    Head North on US HWY 59 for 7 miles

    Church is located on the Right side of the road.

    From Garrison:

    Head South on US HWY 59 for 7.5 miles

    Church is located on the Left side of the road.


    As you pull into the church you will see two buildings. The building to the left is the sanctuary and the building on the right is the children's, youth, and gym. We have designated visitor parking spots towards the East side of the Main building. Overall you can park anywhere around either building. 


    HSBC is a “come as you” are kind of atmosphere. On a typical Sunday you will find some people dressed up in suits, others in business casual, and others in jeans! We believe Jesus is more concerned with the condition of your heart rather than the condition of your clothes.  Right from the start you will find some friendly folks who will make you feel welcome and who you will find have many of the same concerns and struggles with life that you you have! We are diverse in age, race, economic status, and levels of spiritual depth. There is a place for you.


    At Holly Springs Baptist kids and students are one of our top priorities. We offer full programming for preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school. 


    I attend church because ....

    1. I attend church to serve others. There is so much greater joy in serving than seeking to be served. I have many opportunities to serve when the church is gathered. Those opportunities are my gifts from God.
    2. I attend church to encourage others. We live in a world of incredible digital communication. But there is still something irreplaceable about gathering together. When I encounter someone in person at church, I have an opportunity to encourage him or her in person as well.
    3. I attend church to state my priorities. If I am able to go to work, to go to school, to go on vacation, or to watch or be involved in a sport, I can attend church. I desire to have a “no excuse” clause in my life for attending church.
    4. I attend church to participate in worship. There is something special and Spirit-filled about worshipping together with other Christians. It is both an opportunity and gift I do not take lightly.
    5. I attend church to set an example for my family. Couples have healthier marriages when they attend church. Children grow up with countless benefits because their parents took them to church. I need to show the importance and priority of church attendance to those I love.
    6. I attend church because the Bible tells me to do so. Two-thirds of the New Testament is about churches, specifically gathered churches. The words of the writer of Hebrews in 10:24-25 are powerful: “And let us watch out for one another to provoke love and good works, not neglecting to gather together as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and more as you see the day approaching.”
    7. I attend church because I love my church. I love my church. I love my pastor. I love the members of my church. I love the community my church serves. If I love someone, I will be there for them. I truly love my church.

    In simple terms we believe that God the Creator loved people so much that he provided a way out of sin, Jesus his Son. Jesus would die on the cross for our sins, raise to life on the third day and then send the Holy Spirit to live inside of believers.

    We believe salvation is available to anyone who would confess Jesus as Savior.

    We believe the Bible, Holy Scripture, is totally true, trustworthy, and without error. 

    We believe the church (global) is the bride of Christ whose mission is to glorify God through worship, please God through community, and serve God through mission.

    We believe Jesus will return one day to take us home to be with Him and we look forward to that day!

Get Connected

Attending a worship service is a great way to get a feel for the personality of our church, but we believe true connection is found in a smaller setting.  Sunday School Small Groups are our most significant opportunity for finding and establishing community within our church family.
