Hello, I am Earl Beal, Pastor of Joy Baptist Church!

Thank you for visiting our church site! Joy Baptist Church is a miracle church. God gave birth to this church on July 1, 1994.

God called me, my wife, Kathy, and our two girls, Mindy & Bridget, to start a work here in this river town. We came by faith, and God has honored and blessed that little seed.

In the past 28 years, we have come to appreciate even more than ever the power of the resurrected life that comes through the precious blood of Jesus Christ. God has given us a great harvest of souls, and warm committed lives in this sweet fellowship.

If you ever have the opportunity to stop by, we would LOVE to have you! I pray that your time here on our site might be an encouragement to you.
