Little River Baptist Church

Where God’s Word flows


We are a fellowship of transformed believers who seek to glorify God through the proclamation of God’s Inerrant Word with the purpose of making disciples in Lake Anna, Louisa, Hanover, and surrounding counties.


Little River Baptist Church teaches faith in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, as the only way to eternal life.  Our greatest desire is to lead unbelievers to faith in Christ and for believers to live totally surrendered to the Holy Spirit.


At Little River Baptist Church we focus on families. We strive to create an environment where family relationships grow deeper and more meaningful and family connections are strengthened. We want to partner with you to help grow your family to become all God has designed family to be. 


The people of our community matter to God and they matter to us. Little River is committed to serving, caring, and connecting with our neighbors and surrounding communities. Through OUTREACH ministries, it is our goal and desire to introduce people to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to help them grow in their walk with Him.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
II Corinthians 5:17

We are happy that you have stopped by to learn what we are all about. We hope you see our passion for Jesus and His gospel.
We are a gospel centered, family focused church community. At Little River Baptist Church, you will see that we believe the gospel is so much more than a starting point for people. The gospel is all of  life, and it shapes the very way in which we live life together with our family, friends, neighborhood, and the rest of the world.
If you are looking for a church home that is not too big to get lost in, not to small to be active in, and offers opportunities for people of all ages and walks of life to serve, lead, and worship, we would love Little River to be your church home.


The Bible tells us that each person has a unique gift to share.

Where can God use your talents?



Little River is a multi-generational congregation. We seek to honor and respect the worship preferences of each generation as we give praise to our Lord and Savior. Sunday worship is traditional and careful consideration is given to provide music that connects with each group reflected in the congregation.


Little River is committed to responding to the social and spiritual needs of youth in our church and community. Our vision is to enable youth to understand and recognize who Jesus is and to live for Him. Whether you have gone to church your whole life or are taking your first steps to Christianity, you will find that you are welcome here. 



Little River is committed to leading children to grow in Christ. Each teacher follows an age-appropriate curriculum. We offer children’s activities that are interesting, focused on loving God, and serving the needs of others. Our team considers it an honor to serve the children in our community.





Little River technical team supports our Sunday  worship services and special  programs “behind the scenes”. The team supports the services with audio, media, and video. Through the avenue of media and technology some of the areas that God could use your talents could include anything from recording audio/video messages, assisting with special video projects, or website editing.


Little River supports missionaries and their efforts to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ around the world. We support efforts in Mexico and Montreal, Quebec. Not only are we working beyond the borders of the United States, but within them as well. Most recently Little River provided money and people to help in the restoration efforts after a tornado devastated the Tappahannock community.
