Looking for a Church Home?
Welcome to Back Row Baptist Church - the perfect online home for imperfect people!
We are not a brick and mortar church, we are a body of believers from many different churches (even many that are not Baptist) that meet together on Facebook to crack jokes, share funny Christian memes, and encourage each other with laughter.
In other words, we're the church body, not an actual church.
Feel free to post your religious humor!
We are the official online community for BackRowRadio.com and Back Row Ministries. We on the back row are laid back and (mostly) non-controversial. This isn't a place to pick up a picket sign. It's a place to poke fun at ourselves, find community in our shared struggles, and remember that laughter is one of God's greatest gifts.
You are welcome here!
Some of our recent original Christian memes:
The Group Rules
1 | Be funny.
This is, above all, a humor group. If it ain't a joke, don't post it. Simple as that. At the same time, the humor we want is specific: Appropriate religious humor. Please don't break any commandments with your posts.
2 | Don't be a turd.
Please don't intentionally upset people or make them feel like garbage. Don't belittle anybody because of differing doctrine (and certainly not because of anything like race or what-have-you). We are a Christian group that accepts all Christian denominations (despite the "Baptist" in our name).
3 | Have a thick skin.
This is a religious humor group. That guarantees you might get offended from time to time. If it's clear the post is in good humor, don't be a weenie about it. If you ABSOLUTELY have to complain about something, contact an Admin or Mod.
4 | Keep it Christian.
This is a Christian humor group, made specifically for that purpose. Please don't post jokes/memes that have nothing to do with faith or church culture. (Occasionally, we will relax the rule for specific holidays or events, such as Christmas, where we allow Christmas posts, religious or not.)
5 | Keep it clean.
As should be obvious (being a Christian group), no sexual junk, no scantily clad junk (both sexes), no excessive violence, and no profanity (consult Tim Hawkin's list of acceptable Christian curse words when in doubt).
6 | No arguing.
This is not a place for heated debate, no matter what the topic. Don't start picking fights. Any serious debates, heated or not, will garner a warning. Take that mess off campus.
7 | No "Jesus Junk" posts.
Avoid sharing the typical "oversaved" religious photos you find your Aunt sharing on her wall (If I see ONE minion, I swear...). Also, no sharing of your church's ads or fundraisers or anything of that nature. Any fundraisers for things such as Disaster Relief or what-have-you will come from Admins.
8 | No peddling your own stuff.
The only peddling done here is for Back Row Ministries (and even that is rare). Occasionally, we will feature a post for anyone to share whatever they are working on or to publicize a product, podcast, or project. Please keep your networking to those posts alone.
9 | Don't make us regret this.
Breaking any of these rules will result in either a warning or immediate removal from the group, depending on the severity of the incident and at the discretion of the Admin or Mods. Remember, we only have two cheeks. You smack us on both and you're outta here.
