Thanks so much for dropping by to check us out. We hope you will find enough information here to help you understand our identity, our mission, and our desire to be a community of grace that brings glory to God in Warner Robins and around the world.
We offer ministries for every age and life-stage from preschool to senior adults, and would love to have you be part of the exciting work that God is doing in and through our church. To give you a little more insight, here are the answers to a few questions you might have:
We offer two Sunday services each week at 9 & 10:30 a.m. The first service is more traditional in format, offering hymns with an occasional blend of newer songs for worship. The second service reflects more of a modern or contemporary worship format. We have small group classes (traditionally called Sunday School) that meet simultaneously with our service hours. We also have small groups that meet in homes on Sunday evenings or other nights of the week, should that be your preference. We would love to have you visit our service and give us the opportunity to get you connected to a small group that meets your needs.
We also have Wednesday night services, Bible studies, and activities for everyone.

You can find us in the heart of Warner Robins at 615 Corder Road, between Watson Blvd and Russell Pkwy. You can see a map and get driving directions by clicking here.
Although "church" has changed in a lot of ways since we opened our doors in 1963, we believe our mission as a church remains the same. We would say our mission is simply to "love God, love each other, and love our community as fully committed followers of Jesus Christ."
That mission flows directly out of our beliefs. SHBC is a Southern Baptist Church, and our beliefs are consistent with the Baptist Faith and Message. Those beliefs can be found in their full expression by clicking here.
At Shirley Hills, we desire to minister to children of all ages, partnering with parents to lead them to faith in Christ. We have activities for children and students that run simultaneously with all our regular service times, and we have incredible special events throughout the year that are fun-filled, engaging, and spiritually meaningful. You can read about all our preschool ministry here, our children's ministry here, and our iMPRINT student ministries here.
We have plenty of parking all around our property, including designated guest spaces near our worship center that allows for easy access to our buildings. Whatever your needs, from proximity to children's ministry areas to handicap access, our members will gladly assist you in any way they can. Click here to see a map of our campus.
We encourage our members and guests to wear whatever makes them comfortable to fully worship Christ, knowing that "man looks at the outward appearance but God looks at the heart." Modesty is a Biblical value, and we desire not to distract or draw attention to ourselves since worship is about God alone. At SHBC, you will see us in everything from suits to t-shirts and shorts, and you are welcome as you are.
As explained above, we have a broad mix of hymns and contemporary worship songs. Our music in both services is provided by a worship band, consisting of piano, guitars, and drums. We have a worship choir that helps lead our congregation each week, often providing special music as well. We love and embrace songs old and new, for they are all part of our heritage of faith and identity as people of God.
Typically, our services last about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Our pastor, Jacob Green, teaches from the ESV (English Standard Version), but we welcome you to use any translation that remains true to God's Word.
We hope soon to offer live streaming of our services. In the meantime, we invite you to click here to go to our message media page for video or audio of recent messages.
