To God Be The Glory


“…I heard the voice of many angels around the throne…saying with a loud voice: Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory…” Revelation 5:11-12


For 125 years, Chimney Rock Baptist Church has proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Over the years, countless thousands of lives have been touched by the Holy Spirit moving in its congregation. With time have come many changes. God’s promises, however, have not changed; and He remains of our praise and adoration. The hymn writer Fanny Crosby best described this feeling of worthiness when she penned these words…


To God be the glory, great things He hath done; so loved He the world that He gave us His Son, Who yielded His life an atonement for sin, And opened the life-gate that all may go in. Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the earth hear His voice! Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the people rejoice! O come to the Father, thro’ Jesus the Son, And give Him the glory, great things He hath done.”


It is our desire to provide worshipful experiences that will bless all who share in the family of Chimney Rock Baptist Church. Each day we walk together with Christ as our guide. Our church’s journey has been a long one. It is a journey that leads into the future; a future we pray will end only with the return of our Savior and King. On that great day, may we join all heaven saying, “Blessing and…glory…be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne”.





Morning Has Broken

“He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters…” Psalms 23:2

Since 1969, Chimney Rock Baptist Church has taken the message of Christ’s love and redemption outside its walls to the shores of Lake Lure. What began as a way to provide a church service for tourist families has grown to be an annual tradition. Services are held at the Lakeside Chapel each year from the first Sunday of May through the second Sunday of October. Outdoor enthusiasts, fisherman, bikers, beachcombers and cyclists as well as locals who have no church affiliation gather each week to hear God’s Word shared in a casual and relaxed setting.


Bible Study

And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. John 17:10

We enjoy “Bible Study” every Wednesday morning at 10 am in a casual setting.


“Glory comes from God the Father. Even though we are mere creatures on the tiny planet of Earth, God’s glory is revealed through us. We are made in God’s image, and we are saved by Jesus, the Son of God, through whom heaven and the whole universe were created. There is something very wonderful about our place in God’s creation. As creations made in God’s image and as believers in Jesus Christ our Savior, we are transformed. We emit God’s glory.

When we read, listen, and meditate on God’s words, we are filled with God’s glory. When we pray and obey God, we radiate God’s bright glory. When we love God and our neighbors, we share God’s glory. Heaven and Earth rejoice with us. Jesus, our bridegroom, is glorified through our obedience. We pray that Jesus receives lots of glory through our lives. We have such a special place in God’s creation. Why do people seek transient dirt, when God’s glory is right here with us? We pray to God in Jesus’ name that we always give glory to God throughout our lives.”

Dr. Paul Kim, M.D.


Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation…and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.”
Luke 21:10-11

Just days before the huge “Party Rock Fire” of November 2016 in Lake Lure and Chimney Rock Village, this photo was taken by local photographer Mike Kubal. He was driving past the beach when he saw the sky and pulled over in front of our Lakeside Chapel and snapped a picture. The wildfire burned for 25 days and consumed over 7,000 acres prompting large evacuations in the local area.

“You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” Rev 4:11
