Our Pastor, Dr. Mike Files

Pastoring for 20 years!

Dr. Mike Files is a dynamic speaker who has the ability to communicate with both the young and old. His practical Biblical messages deal with the pressures and problems that we all encounter.

Dr. Files was saved at the age of 26 on July 19, 1983 – just two days after reading a gospel tract that was left on his door by a member of Bible Baptist Church. Since then, Dr. Files has received his Bachelor of Pastoral Theology degree from Bethel Baptist College in 1994 and his Doctorate of Divinity degree from Louisiana Baptist Seminary in 2002.

After graduating from Bethel Baptist College, the Lord used Dr. Files and his family to start the Bible Baptist Church in Rogers, Arkansas. (presently Colonial Baptist Church) In 1996, the Lord impressed upon Dr. Files’ heart to return to Jacksonville as pastor of Bible Baptist Church.

God has given Dr. Files a heart not only for the people of Jacksonville, but also for people in foreign lands. Whether he is standing behind the pulpit in Bible Baptist Church or visiting our missionaries on their foreign fields, Dr. Files has one purpose–to reach the lost with the Gospel of salvation.

Dr. and Mrs. Files have two grown sons who are both serving in fulltime ministries here at Bible Baptist Church with their families.

Numbers 33:1 – 36:13

These are the journeys of the children of Israel, which went forth out of the land of Egypt with their armies under the hand of Moses and Aaron. And Moses wrote their goings out according to their journeys by the commandment of the LORD: and these are their journeys according to their goings out. And they departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the morrow after the passover the children of Israel went out with an high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians. For the Egyptians buried all their firstborn, which the LORD had smitten among them: upon their gods also the LORD executed judgments. And the children of Israel removed from Rameses, and pitched in Succoth. And they departed from Succoth, and pitched in Etham, which is in the edge of the wilderness. And they removed from Etham, and turned again unto Pihahiroth, which is before Baalzephon: and they pitched before Migdol. And they departed from before Pihahiroth, and passed through the midst
