Our Vision and Mission

Our vision: Loving God. Growing Families. For the Glory of God.
Our mission: To help people become passionate followers of Jesus by biblically equipping them to know and love God for advancing the gospel locally, regionally, and worldwide.


  • We believe the Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in its original languages. It offers the rule of faith and practice for Christians.
  • We believe salvation from sin, death, and hell is a gift received by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. Nothing in regard to a person’s salvation is by their own effort; it is totally a work of God.
  • We believe God the Father rules as sovereign King over the universe; He owns everything and is the rightful ruler of everyone.
  • We believe that Christ Jesus is the Son of God and is the living head of the Church.
  • We believe the Holy Spirit is the living and active third Person of the Triune Godhead.

Associate Pastor of Youth, Worship, and Communications: Brandon Frazeur

Pastor Brandon Frazeur joined our team in Spring 2013 as the Youth Pastor and also fills multiple other roles at Tipton. He and his wife Ashley have three children. Pastor Brandon’s testimony:
“I am very fortunate to have grown up in a Christian home where my father was and still is my role model, not just physically but spiritually. I accepted Christ when I was 5. I can still remember kneeling beside my bed and asking God to forgive me of my sin and that I wanted to spend forever with Him. Due to my dad’s many different ministry experiences, I had the opportunity to be exposed to and witness firsthand Youth, Children’s, Music and even Camping Ministry as well as how they operated. My senior year in high-school God made it very clear to me that I should study his Word more, and so I attended Word of Life Bible Institute and finished both their 1st and 2nd Year courses. God put into me the desire for youth ministry while working at Word of Life’s youth camp called The Island. I continued schooling at Baptist Bible College (now Clarks Summit University) and graduated there with a Bachelor’s in Specialized Biblical Studies. I love working with teens and look forward to my CREW every week!”
