North Fork Baptist Church is comprised of people from all over Loudoun and Clarke Counties. Some live just down the dirt road, while others travel tens of miles to worship in our quaint little church.
Our congregation is diverse; our worship conservative. We prefer the King James version of the Bible in our services. We believe in studying God’s Word at home as well as at church. We believe that learning is a lifelong endeavor. We sing classic hymns and believe in the power of prayer. We believe in and support foreign missions. We have a monthly pot luck luncheon to get to know each other better.
Under the Rev. Parker Thompson, North Fork Baptist's pastor since 1993, the church has more than doubled its congregation to about 80, Thompson told me recently. The
church has also offered courses in Greek and Hebrew and American and European church history. After taking the course in beginning Hebrew, my diploma read, "Western
Loudoun Institute for Biblical Studies." Thompson surmised that I might have thought the title a bit pretentious and countered my raised eyebrows with: "Remember, Oxford
[University] started by an ox ford, so why not at North Fork?"
