Franklin Road Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church that has been a part of the city of Murfreesboro for over six decades. Since the church was established in 1954, it has been a place of spiritual growth for many in our community whose reach extends to our nation and beyond. Our desire is to see people know God personally, grow together as a church family, and show others the Gospel of Christ through various ministries and outreach opportunities.
You will find our church hospitable and welcoming. Our worship services are designed to honor and glorify Jesus Christ through powerful music and dynamic Bible preaching in a traditional church atmosphere rooted in over 60 years of godly heritage. Our church is comprised of ordinary people who serve an extraordinary God, so no matter who you are, you are welcome to join us as we grow together in Christ.
Dr. Mike Norris and his family came to Franklin Road Baptist Church in 1999. He served as co-pastor for 1 year and in January of 2000 became the senior pastor of FRBC. Since then, God has blessed the church with both numerical and spiritual growth. The church’s average attendance has nearly doubled and the church has undergone multiple building expansion and renovation projects to accommodate our growing congregation.
Pastor Norris’s love for our church as well as our community is evident through his personal, practical preaching and his vision for the future of our church.

Come Visit Us
The best way to truly experience Franklin Road is to visit one of our services. During each service, you will be encouraged by the worship through song and the preaching of the Word of God. We offer nurseries for infants to toddlers and a variety of classes for children through twelve years old as well as teens and young adults. We look forward to seeing you at our next service!
Visiting any church, especially a larger one, for the very first time can be intimidating. We want your first visit to Franklin Road to be as easy and refreshing as possible. Here are some answers to some frequently asked questions from guests:
If there’s something we missed on this list, feel free to contact us or ask a greeter when you arrive. Whether you’re new to the area and looking for a church home, or if it’s been a long time since you have attended church at all, we hope your first visit to Franklin Road Baptist will be a wonderful experience! We desire to serve you and your family to best of our ability. We look forward to meeting you personally!
Where do I go when I arrive?
Its hard to miss our growing campus on Highway 96 of Murfreesboro. When you arrive at our East Entrance located on Franklin Road, you will find guest parking, a canopy drop-off area, and a friendly hospitality team to welcome you as you arrive and answer any questions you may have. If you have to park a little further away, look for a friendly cart driver who will give you a smooth ride to the front door.
Most adults attend the morning Worship Service at 11:00 in the auditorium where they enjoy the traditional worship music, the warm fellowship, and the practical Bible preaching of Pastor Norris. You are welcome to attend one of many LifeStage Bible Classes during the 10:00 hour, as well. These classes are smaller group settings where you can meet people, enjoy some coffee and donuts, and hear a Bible lesson directly applicable to your stage of life. This the best way to get to know the people of our church while growing in your faith. For more information or a list of our classes, you can ask a member of our hospitality team upon your arrival.
Where do I take my children?
We believe children are a gift from God. That is why each service offers something special for every child. Safe, clean, and highly staffed nurseries for children two years old and under are available at every service. Children three years old through sixth grade experience fun, friendly, and Bible-centered classes on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. These classes are staffed with trained, friendly, and well-qualified teachers and helpers who will make church exciting and memorable for your child. For more questions or a schedule of children’s classes offered at each service visit our FRBC Kids page.
We realize our campus can be a little complex. A member of our hospitality team will be happy to help you find the correct classes, nurseries, and pickup locations upon your arrival.
How should I dress?
There is not a dress code at Franklin Road Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in traditional Sunday dress; however, we want you to feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Franklin Road Baptist!
Am I expected to participate in the offering?
We do not invite you to Franklin Road Baptist Church for your offering. Our weekly offering is used as a time for our members to give back to God and worship Him with our finances. As our guest, we want our worship service to be our gift to you.
