The Tennessee Valley Independent Baptist Fellowship is a fellowship of fundamental independent Baptist preachers committed to the old-fashioned preaching of the King James Version of the Bible, soulwinning, missions, and Scriptural separation. 

Our Mission


Recognizing the privilege God gives us to preach His Word and keep His Great Commission, we desire to provide an opportunity to uplift preachers, pastors, missionaries, and laymen alike by providing a time for fellowship around a good meal and hearing challenging sermons from men of God who still uphold the old-time fundamental beliefs of the Bible.



We normally meet bi-monthly on the first Saturday of the month.  Member churches host the meetings with a time of good food and fellowship followed by a challenging service with two preachers.


Each September we hold our Annual Bible Conference in which we invite a greatly-used preacher for 2 nights of services.

Service Times


Fellowship meals begin at 5:00 PM.

Preaching services normally begin at 6:00 PM.


Our Next Meeting

The TVIBF will meet Saturday March 5 at Godfrey Avenue Baptist Church in Fort Payne. Pastor John York and Pastor Richard Hartline will be preaching. Fellowship meal at 5:00 and service at 6:00. If you need further assistance with directions, feel free to call Brother Jeff Mims  at 256-586-8637.
