    About the MTSBC

    Southern Baptists have been in Montana since 1952 when our first church was planted in Billings, now known as Emmanuel Baptist Church. Since that time we have grown to over 135 churches and missions stretching from the Canadian border to our Southern, Western and Eastern state lines spanning a geographic region of over 147,000 square miles. Montana’s population is just over 1 million with nearly 70% residing in or near the seven population centers of Billings, Bozeman, Butte, Great Falls, Missoula, Helena and Kalispell.
