Meet the Pastor

Hello and welcome to the Crestview Independent Baptist Church website! We are delighted that you are on our church website!

About the Pastor:

When I was 10 years old, I trusted Christ as my Savior. I was called to preach when I was 17 years old. When I was 20 years old, God called me to Papua New Guinea as a church planting missionary. I met my wife shortly after that, and a year later we were married on April 28th, 2012. Immediately after we were married, we set off on deputation to raise support to go to Papua New Guinea as missionaries. We finished our deputation, and arrived in the eastern highlands of Papua New Guinea on March 15th, 2015. We spent the next 8 years in Papua New Guinea preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Lord graciously allowed us to plant 2 churches among the Kadsup people in Yonki before calling us to Crestview Independent Baptist Church in January of 2023.


Our Goals:

Our prayer and desire for Crestview Independent Baptist Church is that God would use this church to be a lighthouse in the surrounding communities and around the world to shine the light of the glorious gospel of Christ to a lost and dying world.


We desire to see God grow His church here in Crestview through Soul-winning, discipling, counseling, and verse by verse exposition of the Scriptures.


We desire to grow as a church body and we would like to personally invite you to come be our guest and grow with us.


We look forward to seeing you soon,

Pastor Tim Lewis
