About Us


Our church located in Dublin KY

Founded in 1974, we are an independent Bible believing Baptist church located in Mayfield, KY. Our goal is to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth as we seek to serve Him with gladness. Our worship services are filled with old-fashioned, traditional singing and preaching straight from the King James Bible. We are a church that strives to biblically educate believers in the way of righteousness and lead the lost unto Jesus Christ.


Bro. James Martin and Family


Just as every person is different and unique so is every Christians testimony. I was born and raised in Gainesville, Georgia by a christian mother and father. After many years of doubt, confusion and fear I made my way to an alter on December 31st, 1998 and was saved by the grace of God. On September 12th, 2000, I surrendered my life to the call of God to preach the gospel. After many months of prayer and searching for God’s will I left Gainesville, Georgia and moved to Powell, Tennesse to attend Crown College of the Bible. During this time I met my wife Kim Martin and after graduating in May of 2005 her and I were married. We then spent ten years in Murfreesboro, Tennessee serving as an Assistant Pastor at Middle Tennessee Baptist Church. I also served as Pastor at New Life Baptist Church in Tullahoma, Tennessee, and as an Evangelist out of Middle Tennessee Baptist Church. During this time the Lord blessed Kim and I with four beautiful children, Ginger, Drew, Macie and Georgia. After months of prayer we answered the call to come to Unity Missionary Baptist Church on January 28th, 2015. I am truly blessed to be able to pastor at such a great church, with such great people and in a great community.


Pastor James Martin

What We Believe


Unity Missionary Baptist Church is an Independent, Fundamental, King James only, Missionary Baptist Church. It is our conviction that the Local New testament Church is God’s chosen agent to fulfill His plan and purpose in the world during this present age. Below is an explanation of our beliefs on the major doctrines of the Word of God.

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Bible, “as it is in truth, the Word of God…” (I Thessalonians 2:13). We believe in verbal, plenary inspiration in the original writings, and God’s preservation of His pure words to every generation (II Timothy 3:16, Psalms 12:6-8). We believe that the Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and inspired (God-breathed).The Masoretic Text of the Old Testament and the Received Text of the New Testament (Textus Receptus) are those texts of the original languages we use; the Authorized King James Version of the Bible is the only bible used in all preaching and teaching done at the Church. The Bible is our sole and final authority for faith and practice.
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections (Deuteronomy 6:4; II Corinthians 13:14). We believe that God created the entire universe in six literal, twenty-four-hour days (Genesis 1:1-27).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men (John 1:1-2, 14; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; 7:14; Philippians 2:5-8; Galatians 4:4-5). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His finished work on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Romans 3:24-25; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ was raised bodily and that He ascended to Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate (Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 9:24, 7:25; Romans 8:34; I John 2:1-2).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Person who reproves the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, indwelling all believers and sealing them unto the day of redemption (John 16:8-11; II Corinthians 3:6; Romans 8:9; Ephesians 1:13-14). We believe that the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit, such as speaking in tongues and the gift of healing, were temporary. We believe that speaking in tongues was never the common or necessary sign of the baptism or filling of the Holy Spirit and that ultimate deliverance of the body from sickness or death awaits the consummation of our salvation in the resurrection, though God frequently chooses to answer the prayer of believers for physical healing. (II Corinthians 12:12; I Corinthians 13:8; Hebrews 2:3-4; Mark 16:17-20; I Corinthians 1:22, 14:21-22).
We believe in the reality of the person of Satan and that he and the fallen angels wage a spiritual warfare against the plan and purposes of God (John 13:2; Acts 5:3; Ephesians 6:11-12). We believe that Satan is a created angelic being who rebelled and who tempted man to join him in rebellion against God (Isaiah 14:12-17; Ezekiel 28:11-19; Genesis 3:1-5). We believe his power is supernatural, yet limited; and that he cannot act without the permission of God (Job 1:6-12; I John 4:4). Satan’s eternal end is everlasting torment in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:10).
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that in Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God; and therefore man is depraved, and, of himself, utterly unable to remedy his lost condition (Genesis 1:26- 27; Romans 3:22-23; Ephesians 2:1-3, 12).

The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image and is mindful of him, and in that Christ died for man; therefore every individual possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love. (Psalm 8:4-9; Colossians 3:9-11). We believe that the only marriage recognized by Scripture is the joining of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Romans 7:2; 1 Corinthians 7:10; Ephesians 5:22-23) We believe that God expressly forbids intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between one man and one woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are perversions of God’s intended purposes and therefore, sin. We believe that God forbids any attempt to alter one’s God-given gender identity by any means, including surgery or appearance. (Genesis 2:24; Genesis 19:5, 13; Genesis 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; 1 Corinthians 5:1, 6:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4)

We believe that the clear message of salvation is “repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21). We believe that salvation is “by grace” plus nothing minus nothing. We believe that Jesus Christ died for every man, and that each individual chooses to accept or reject the grace of God (Hebrews 2:9; I John 2:2). We believe that men are justified by faith alone and are accounted righteous before God only through the merit of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8-10; John 1:12; I Peter 1:18-19) We believe that all the redeemed, once saved are kept by God’s power and word, and are thus secure in Christ forever. We believe that eternal life is the present possession of every believer (John 6:37-40, 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38-39; I Corinthians 1:4-8; I Peter 1:4-5; Jude 1, 2).
We believe that the New Testament church is a local assembly of baptized believers who have voluntarily joined themselves together to carry out the Great Commission. The Lord is doing His work in this world through local churches. The establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures (Acts 14:27; 20:17, 28-32; I Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11). We believe in the autonomy of the local church free of any external authority or control. Christ is the only head of the church (Acts 13:1-4, 15:19-31, 20:28; Romans 16:1, 4; I Corinthians 3:9,16; 5:4-7,13; I Peter 5:1-4). We recognize the ordinances of baptism by immersion in water and the Lord’s Supper as a Scriptural means of testimony for local churches in this age (Matthew. 28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42, 18:18; I Corinthians 11:23-26).
We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Savior and Lord; and, that separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices and associations is commanded of God (II Timothy 3:1-5; Romans 12:1, 2, 14:13; I John 2:15-17; II John 9-11; II Corinthians 6:14-7:1).
We believe the “Blessed Hope” of our Lord’s return is literal, personal, visible, imminent, premillennial, and pretribulational. Believers will be caught up to be with the Lord prior to the seven years of tribulation, and at the end of the tribulation Christ will return with His saints to establish His thousand-year reign on the earth (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; I Thessalonians 1:10; Revelation 3:10; Zechariah 14:4-11; Revelation 19:11-16, 20:1-6; Psalm 89:3-4).
We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:46; John 5:28, 29, 11:25-26; Revelation 20:5-6, 12-13).
We believe that the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord, where in conscious bliss they await the first resurrection, when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord (Luke 23:43; Revelation 20:4-6; II Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:23, 3:21; I Thessalonians 4:16-17).
We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain, after death, in conscious misery in hell until the second resurrection, when with soul and body reunited they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment, and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, not to be annihilated, but to suffer everlasting, conscious punishment (Luke 16:19-26; Matthew 25:41-46; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Jude 6-7; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 20:11-15).

First Time Visitors


What About Comfort and Convenience?

As a visitor of Unity Baptist Church you will be treated as an honored guest. It is our goal to make your visit with us a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Our members strive to make every visitor we have feel welcomed and at home in our Church.

What About Giving?

As a visitor we do not expect or ask you to give anything but we encourage you to follow the Lord’s leadership in this matter.

What Should I Wear?

We do not have a specified dress code, Although, those in leadership positions and church workers wear the traditional “Sunday” attire which might include, coat and tie for the men and dresses or skirts for the ladies. However, if you are visiting our church all we ask is that you do not wear anything provocative or indecent. When we go to church we are going to meet with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and we should dress appropriately for such a meeting.

What Style of Service Should I Expect?

Our services are filled with lively traditional singing from various church hymnals and it is not uncommon for individuals to “rejoice” during service or say “amen” during the preaching. We have an adult choir that sings regularly and a youth choir that sings at different times throughout the month. Our Preacher proclaims the Word of God with Fervency and Urgency and in such a way to invite the lost to Christ and to challenge the saved to further dedicate themselves to the Lord.

What about my Children?

During Sunday School we have a nursery for children under five years old that is kept by our pastor’s wife, Ms. Kim. We have Sunday school classes for kids in Kindergarten all the way through high school. Our Youth Department is led by Bro. Jared Baker and his wife Ms. Christy. On the first Friday of each month we have youth rally and periodically throughout the year we take the kids on various activities. We believe it is essential for our children to not only be in Church but to be involved in Church and we strive to make all of our kids feel like they have a role in the ministry of our Church.
