Who We Are

Nestled within the forests of southern Arkansas, Thrive Church is a multi-denominational group of believers emphasizing the life-changing power of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Senior Pastor Mark Smith, along with his wife Erin and the Thrive team, share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through practical Bible teaching each week in person and online via our flourishing online campus.

We love our kids!

We're pleased to offer age-appropriate classes for children of all ages. From the moment you check your child in through our secure check-in process, your child will be loved, nurtured, and be taught the love of Jesus Christ in an engaging way! We offer these classes every Sunday and Wednesday.

We are fully dedicated to going far beyond our buildings. Through our Home Missions Program and Online Campus Outreach we reach our community and world with the love of Jesus Christ.

From regularly setting up mobile outreaches at festivals and events to ministering in nursing and correctional facilities, we work hard to be a regular presence in the communities we serve. 

Through our Online Campus we reach our online members each week with an engaging livestream. Additionally, through our online Bible Minute programs, we reach far beyond our physical campus with the message of Jesus Christ!

The church has left the building!

What We Believe

Thrive Church is denominationally diverse with Christians from all backgrounds. Our church is built upon these simple, yet foundational truths:


1. We believe that the Bible is inspired by God in its entirety. It is infallible and final authority in the Christian life.

2. We believe that there is one God existing in three distinct persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of virgin Mary; that He lived without sin; that He died to atone for our sin; was buried and resurrected; that He ascended to Heaven, where He is now seated at the right hand of God the Father.

4. We believe in personal salvation and the new birth of believers through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. He is the only door by which salvation is obtained.

5. We believe in the present-day ministry of the Holy Spirit. We believe in water baptism by immersion, in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and in speaking with tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance.

6. We believe in the gifts and leadership of the Spirit and in the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit in our daily Christian life.

7. We believe in the soon-coming, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.


We believe Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life! John 14:6
