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.)
