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”.

“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.
