What We Believe

We believe in the verbal inspiration and authority of the Scriptures.


We believe that the Bible reveals God, the fall of man, the way of salvation, and God’s plan and purpose for the ages.

We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.


We believe that Christ died for our sins and that salvation is “by grace” and "through faith."


We believe that men are justified by faith alone and are accounted righteous before God only through the merit of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.


We believe in the visible, personal, and premillennial return of Christ.

We believe in the everlasting conscious blessedness of the saved and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.





Our Pastor


Pastor Brad Noble and his family came to Gainesville Baptist Church in September 2006. Prior to coming to Gainesville, Pastor Noble served on staff at the Gulf Coast Baptist Church in Cape Coral, Florida, under the ministry of Dr. Tom Sexton.


Pastor Noble was saved as a young boy during a revival meeting at the Bean Blossom Baptist Church in Indiana and was baptized at the Bethel Baptist Church, his family's home church, in Grapevine, Texas. He grew up in an evangelist's home and was called to preach in 1995.


He met his wife, Lena, while preparing for the ministry at Crown College of the Bible in Powell, TN. They were married on June 7, 2002. God has blessed them with three wonderful children: Jacob (2004), Lydia (2006), and Lily (2008). Pastor Noble graduated from Crown College with a Bachelor of Biblical Studies in Pastoral Ministry in 2002 and a Master of Ministry in 2003.
