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.

Psalms 107:1 – 111:10

O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy; And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south. They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses. And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation. Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the
