First Baptist Church Newport, TN


This 20,809-square-foot new building and campus relocation project includes a welcoming two-story fellowship entry lobby; administrative offices; classrooms catering to adults, youth, children, and a nursery; a preschool weekday program; a well-equipped commercial kitchen and serving area; inviting bookstore and library; and a flexible worship area, perfect for various events.

The church is also planning a future 6,225-square-foot structure for recreation and youth assemblies.

Beyond the building, the five-acre site offers ample parking and a serene outdoor prayer garden. It also provides a breathtaking 360-degree panoramic view of the community and an iconic steeple—visible from miles away.

Community Tectonics also provided a master plan for the future, including a chapel and expanded classroom and worship space.
