On the west side of the beautiful mountain city of Asheville, NC is a local body of believers in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior at Starnes Cove Baptist Church. We are founded for the purpose of serving the kingdom of God in our community according to the teachings of the scriptures. We seek to provide a warm and caring fellowship in what can be a cold and cruel world. It has been said that we have a very encouraging congregation.

     The Mission of Starnes Cove Baptist Church is to worship God, to bring people to Christ and into a loving fellowship of believers, and to disciple them for service and ministry to others.

Our mission is to carry on the work of Jesus who said:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor.
He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives,
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set free those who are downtrodden,
[19] To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”
- Luke 4:18-19

We are a mid-size congregation, large enough to provide ministry for all age-groups, but small enough to know one another and be known. We are members of the Southern Baptist Convention, NC Baptist Convention, and the Buncombe Baptist Association.

Exit 44 off I-40 West; Turn Left onto Smokey Park Highway; Go to first light and turn left onto Old Haywood Road; Go past Cracker Barrel about ½ mile to Starnes Cove Road and turn left. The church is about ½ mile on the right. (For a map, click on the Directions tab at the top of the page.)

Special Announcements

To Our Church Family

We are humbled. The love and support you have shown us in your decision Sunday, September 18th, and every other day before, blesses us richly.
Sheila and I know the Lord is at work at Starnes Cove--in and through us. He has good plans in store for us and for those we can reach with His word. With your support, and His direction, we can meet those plans.
As your new Associate Pastor, I commit daily to seek His leadership for our community privately and publicly. I can't wait to work alongside you to bring new people to Christ and faithful believers closer to Him. Proverbs 16:9 tells us, "The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps." Together, with Charlie's shepherding and God's leading, we will walk in those steps.
We love you all and thank you for your prayers and encouragement in the days ahead. William and Sheila Moore
