"Our mission is to make mature disciples of Jesus Christ within a transformational community."

Hunter First Baptist Church is located just outside of Elizabethton, Tennessee in the shadow of Holston Mountain. For nearly two centuries the people of Hunter First have worshiped and served together in the name of Jesus Christ. Through trials and triumph, God has equipped Hunter to be on mission in Carter County and around the globe. Our desire is to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ reach all people and to glorify the Lord as we help them walk with Him.
