About our Church

Our Beliefs

As we draw near to the return of our King, all that we teach, say, do, and believe are and will always be grounded in His Word – The Holy Bible. We are a church comprised of many different backgrounds and walks, but all strive for the authentic encounters with our Living Father. We believe this will happen through a lifestyle of authentic worship. We welcome you to join us in this adventure!

Our Purpose

Tried Stone is a congregation rooted in the love of God, and the joy of the Holy Spirit. We believe in signs, wonders, and miracles, and long for His manifest presence to transform us into the image of His Son. The atmosphere at Tried Stone is filled with charity, truth, and humility. It’s our vision to see Blacksburg, Virginia Tech, and the New River Valley desperately longing for more of God Himself.

Our Pastor

Pastor Eric Willoughby became our senior pastor April 2013. He and his wife, Brittnee, have a heart to reach the New River Valley. God has blessed him with the gift of teaching, and a heart for prayer, discipleship, and worship. His maturity is well beyond his years. He is a fourth generation pastor, and attributes much of his lot in life to the faithful men that served before him.

Plan a visit

Our Service starts at 10:00am. We offer Nursery care (6-24m) and Toddler Class (2-5yrs) for the entire service. KIDS Church (Kindergarten-5th Grade) is available after the worship portion of the service. We are a body of believers that long for the manifest presence of the living God. We believe the Holy Spirit is the key to a last revival before the return of our King. If you have never worshipped with us we are looking forward to meeting you!
