What Has Brought Us to This Stage?
Subject to meeting the full conditions of a Memorandum of Understanding, First Baptist Church will sell our current facility to the City of Smyrna for $15,800,000. First Baptist will purchase 5.5 acres of land on Atlanta Road from the City of Smyrna for $3,300,000. During Construction and until premises are vacated, First Baptist will pay the City of Smyrna $300,000 to lease the present church campus.
After our vote on August 27, 2023, the motion passed 59% to 41%. From that result, we have entered into a time of planning and due diligence that will run through the first part of 2024.
