Biltmore's Arden Campus

Biltmore's Arden Campus


Over 125 years ago a small group of people organized a church that eventually became Biltmore Church.  As Biltmore grew under the leadership of several different pastors, they moved locations to accommodate a growing congregation. Their first service at the Arden location was Easter 2000. In 2008, Dr. Bruce Frank was called to be Biltmore's Lead Pastor. Under Dr. Frank's leadership, the church has continued to grow. In 2012, Biltmore  became a multisite church when it launched its Swannanoa Campus. In 2013 a third campus was launched in Franklin, NC. And in 2015 and 2016, Biltmore grew again to five locations with the launches of its Hendersonville and West Asheville Campuses. Biltmore averages over 6,000 worshippers each weekend across each of its campuses. They have repeatedly been recognized as one of the top 100 fastest growing and largest churches in America.

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." Matthew 28:18-20

Biltmore's focus is on making disciples of Christ. The basic characteristics of a disciple center around walking with and worshipping Christ, living in community with others, and ministering to both the Church and the world. Biltmore Baptist Church exists to glorify God in this way, so we constantly strive to:

REACH UP through Worship

Seeking only to glorify and honor God, Biltmore's worship services are biblically grounded and culturally relevant. The goal is to provide a worship setting and experience that provides the worshipper with a life-changing experience with the living God.

REACH IN through Community

We were created with a need to connect with others. Biltmore's Connect Groups provide an opportunity to connect with others. Connect Groups meet weekly at the church and in homes to teach relevant lessons from God’s Word and develop relationships that will keep you connected to the church family.

REACH OUT through Ministry

God made you to make a difference in your world. He's gifted every believer with talents, experiences, resources and spiritual gifts. We're called to put action to our beliefs and use our gifts to serve the Lord through service in the church, as well as missions (ministry) in the community and the world.

Biltmore's Franklin Campus


Since its start in August 2013, Biltmore's Franklin Campus has quickly become a vibrant congregation in Franklin community. They meet every Sunday at 11am in the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts. The worship service is band-driven where you'll hear new songs plus some favorite hymns. Most weeks the message by Pastor Bruce is broadcast live via HD video – it looks like he's really right there on stage. Other weeks Patrick preaches live. Also, while adults are worshipping, an incredible worship experience called AMP happens for kids right next door at The Factory. Student Ministries (grades 5-12) meet throughout the week. If you're anywhere close to the Franklin area, you'll definitely want to check out Biltmore's Franklin Campus soon!


You can join Patrick for a free dinner called Starting Point. At Starting Point, Patrick will discuss in depth the beliefs, values, and vision of Biltmore Church. He will answer questions like "Why multi-site church?" "Why become a church member?" Childcare and dinner are provided free of charge.

Starting Points begin at 5:00pm at The Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin, North Carolina.

2017 Starting Point Dates:  February 19-  June 6-  October 8
