Our Story

Jubilee Baptist Church began in 1996 when a group of people met together for the purpose of uniting together as a church. From our earliest days meeting in a rented space to our current worship center on Pleasant Road in Daphne, Alabama, the people of Jubilee Baptist Church have committed to being a church that is gospel-centered, Word-driven, and multigenerational.

In those early days, our first members joined together for the sake of being a faithful gospel witness in Baldwin County. Though we met in a variety of locations in those first days, the church grew through the efforts of members sharing the gospel in our community.

As the years have gone by, Baldwin County has quickly become one of the fastest-growing areas in the state. The need for the gospel in our county is greater than it has ever been before, and Jubilee is committed to getting the gospel across in all that we do.

From the beginning, our church has been committed to the preaching and teaching of the Bible from the pulpit and in every gathering of the church. It is the central text for our sermons, our Sunday School lessons, and our disciple-making. Our pastor, Paul Matthews, has led the church since 2001 through the clear teaching of God’s inerrant, sufficient word.

When our current worship center was first built, before the floor was laid, members were invited to write Scriptures on the foundation of our worship room. Under the pulpit is written Isaiah 55:11:

...so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

Jubilee Baptist Church has always been a church for all ages. We hope to create environments where grandparents, parents, young adults, and children can all learn from one another, grow in grace together, serve together, eat together, and sit together.

More than this, we recognize the need to create generations of disciple-makers. The gospel is a fundamentally multigenerational message. It was never meant to end with us. Jesus calls those who follow Him to become fishers of men. The gospel calls us to be disciples who make disciples. At Jubilee, we are committed not only to sharing the gospel and teaching the Word, but to equipping our people to do the same: to be disciples who make disciples.

We hope that you will join us as we seek to continue to make disciples for God’s glory in the years ahead.
