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. Green Acres South receives Bro. David Dykes' Sunday morning message and views it during the South Campus 10:30 worship time. 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. 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 study 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 a part of a church that is seeking to create disciples in East Texas, and you have access to the many resources that Green Acres has to offer as you grow in your own walk with Christ.

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?

His engaging style of preaching connects with people of all ages and backgrounds. You don't have to understand "church lingo" to understand Bro. David. He preaches live at the Tyler Campus's Celebration Worship services, and the South Campus receives the message via live feed.
