One CHurch. Two Locations.

Green Acres Baptist Church is one church who meets in two locations, the Tyler Campus on Troup Highway, and the South Campus on Highway 69 South. At the Tyler Campus you can attend worship with a blended style of music in Celebration Worship, or a modern worship service in Resonate. About half the time, Green Acres South receives the Sunday morning message from the Tyler Campus via live feed, and views it during the South Campus 10:30 worship time. Other Sundays, we have live preaching at the South Campus. SMBS classes begin at 9:15 at the South Campus.


Green Acres South has its own staff and ministry leadership. This gives us the resources of a larger church, but the local leadership and family environment of a smaller body of believers. At GABC South, our Campus Pastor, Dustin Slaton, is your pastor. We also have local staff leadership for our music, children, and youth ministries, and ministry team leadership for women, men, missions, events, and deacon ministries. Because of our smaller size, but full-sized ministry, you have the opportunity to be a part of the ministry and mission of the Green Acres in a unique way. 


Whether you choose to worship at the Tyler Campus or the South Campus, you are a part of the church family that is Green Acres Baptist Church. By having multiple worship opportunities and venues, Green Acres is able to reach a wider range of people across various church background experiences, generational ranges, and style preferences. In bringing these groups together, God has created a diverse church who is poised to make a tremendous impact in Tyler and around the world.


When you worship, serve, give, and grow with Green Acres South, a relatively small church, you are actually a part of a much larger church body that is active in missions locally, statewide, nationwide and worldwide. You are a part of a church that is active in seeing the Bible translated into the language of unreached people groups. You are part of a church that is planting other churches locally and around the world. You are a part of a church that is seeking to create disciples, and you have access to the many resources that Green Acres has to offer as you grow in your own walk with Christ.

One Church

One Mission

The mission of Green Acres Baptist Church is the same, whether you are at GABC Tyler or GABC South. Green Acres Baptist Church exists to exalt God's greatness, evangelize God's world, equip God's people and express God's love—through Jesus Christ our Lord. This statement identifies what Green Acres Baptist Church is all about. It is for this purpose it exists, and every available resource, be it skillful hands, compassionate words, a creative mind or useful provisions should be dedicated to the cause of Christ as carried out by this church. Each Green Acres ministry falls under one of the four pillars of our mission statement based on its greatest ability: exalting, evangelizing, equipping, or expressing.

Who Preaches on Sundays?

Green Acres South rotates between live preaching and a live feed from the GABC Tyler Campus. You'll hear a message from GABC Senior Pastor David Dykes, GABC Teaching Pastor Michael Gossett, or South Campus Pastor Dustin Slaton. All three men are committed to clear, biblically based teaching, which will encourage and challenge you in your walk with Christ.
