Where is PBC?
PBC is on Highway 31, 7 miles south of the Hope Hull/Pintlala exit on I-65 and 13 miles south of the city of Montgomery, Alabama.

There are many spaces available surrounding the church and several designated spots for visitors are in front of the sanctuary.
Where do I go when I get there?
There are greeters stationed at each main entrance to the building who can direct you to a Bible Study Class or the Sanctuary. Ushers are available to assist you in finding a seat for the worship service.

What are the services like?
Our services include congregational music and special music by the choir and other participants, prayer, tithes and offerings, and a message from our pastor. These are presented in such a way as to share the gospel of Jesus Christ in a meaningful way. Our membership is diverse and seeks to worship in a relaxed, unthreatening manner.
Will I be singled out as a guest?
As you enter the building, you are provided with a Sunday bulletin and during the service we ask you to complete a registration card provided on the pew. You are not asked to stand or speak during the service. We suggest you linger and meet some of our members at the end of the service.
Will I be expected to give money?
The ministries of PBC are supported by financial contributions of its members and guests, and also by their talents, time and services. A time for voluntary monetary contributions is offered during the worship service if you would like to make a contribution to PBC. Envelopes are provided on the backs of the pews for your convenience.
May I participate during Communion?
It is a strong conviction at PBC that anyone who knows Jesus Christ as their Savior should participate in communion regardless of denomination.
Do you have a nursery?
Quality and constructive child-care for our youngest preschoolers is provided in a safe, well-tended area from birth through three years of age. Children four years of age to school age attend Little Big Church which provides preschool training for sanctuary worship. Each parent is given a silent pager in order for the Preschool Leader to contact them if necessary. The pager is returned when the parent picks up their child following the worship service.
How accessible is the building for physically challenged people?
A drive-through covered portico on the north side of the building allows for easy access for those in wheelchairs or who have difficulty walking. There are several ramps available for wheelchairs from the parking lot area. Handicapped bathrooms are easily accessible and extra wheelchairs are available if needed. Please do not hesitate to ask assistance from a greeter or usher. Earphones with magnification are available for the hearing impaired.
What does your church believe?
While no Baptist can speak for another, the people of Pintlala Baptist Church are committed to sharing the good news of salvation by grace. The Christian life begins, not with rules, but with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The church strives and sometimes struggles, to sustain a culture and atmosphere supported by historic and often endangered Baptist principles such as soul freedom, Bible freedom, church freedom and religious freedom.
