Why the name Lebanon?
Situated approximately a 1/2 mile west of present-day GA 400 on Holcomb Bridge Rd a small community was founded in the early 1800’s. The Lebanon community, equipped with a flour mill, sawmill, post office, and a general store, served as the key center of commerce for early Roswell settlers. In time, the Lebanon Community was absorbed by the growing city of Roswell, but the Lebanon Church has maintained its name from its founding.

Why the title Baptist?
The name “Baptist” is often misinterpreted by many and tends to carry some cultural association with extreme religious fundamentalism. We have chosen to maintain the name because we feel it best describes and communicates our stance in matters of doctrine and life. We align with the historic Baptist distinctives: Protestant, Credo-Baptist, and Congregationalist.
- Baptists are distinct within religion in that we are Protestant.
- Baptists are distinct within Protestantism in that we hold to believer’s baptism.
- Baptists are distinct within Protestantism in that we hold to a congregational structure of church.
Historically, Baptists embrace the authority of the Bible, the autonomy of the local church, the priesthood of the believer, two ordinances for the church, individual soul liberty of each believer, a saved and baptized membership, two offices in the church, and separation of church and state.

Are there any classes available for children and adults?
We have age-based classes for young children through high school as well as classes for all adults from college age on up through senior adults.
Do you have nursery care?
We have a well-staffed nursery available during all regularly scheduled church events for infants and toddlers.
Do I have to utilize nursery and Sunday School for my children?
While it is not required, it is recommended that parents take advantage of our trained childcare providers and Bible teachers on Sunday morning, both for the children’s benefit and those adults in worship. Both will have teaching geared to their understanding level.
What safeguards do you have in place for my children?
Every worker in our children’s ministry goes through a thorough nationwide background screening as well a mandatory training before being permitted to serve with any minor. Each nursery and preschool child is tagged when dropped off and the parent must produce a matching tag for the child to be released.
If you have further questions about our policies and procedures for any of our children’s ministry, please contact the church office.
