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.

Jeremiah 49:1-39

Concerning the Ammonites, thus saith the LORD; Hath Israel no sons? hath he no heir? why then doth their king inherit Gad, and his people dwell in his cities? Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will cause an alarm of war to be heard in Rabbah of the Ammonites; and it shall be a desolate heap, and her daughters shall be burned with fire: then shall Israel be heir unto them that were his heirs, saith the LORD. Howl, O Heshbon, for Ai is spoiled: cry, ye daughters of Rabbah, gird you with sackcloth; lament, and run to and fro by the hedges; for their king shall go into captivity, and his priests and his princes together. Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys, thy flowing valley, O backsliding daughter? that trusted in her treasures, saying, Who shall come unto me? Behold, I will bring a fear upon thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts, from all those that be about thee; and ye shall be driven out every man right forth;
