We're So Glad You're Here

Starnes Cove Baptist Church is a church located in West Asheville, North Carolina, who’s mission is to make disciples of Christ, first through loving and worshipping God, truly showing the love of Christ to those around us by extending a hand to our community, meeting people where they are, and therefore building our local, and the global church. Whether you’ve been out of church for a few months, 30 years, or have never been to church, we’re saving a seat for you here at Starnes Cove.
