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.

Titus 1:1 – Philemon 1:25

Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness; In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour; To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour. For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men,
