"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me" (John 12:32). Our vision is to know Christ and make Him known. We believe that magnifying Christ will draw others to Him and give Him the position that He alone deserves. "...That in all things [Christ] might have the preeminence" (Colossians 1:18). We desire to see multitudes growing with us in the grace, knowledge and love of Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18; Ephesians 4:16).
Bible Baptist Church
Our Story & Vision
Bible Baptist Church began as a home Bible study in 1960 and grew into a church family that moved into a rented facility on Madison Avenue. Under the leadership of Pastor Walt Fisher, the current church property on 24th Street was purchased. Church members assisted in constructing the first sanctuary which now serves as our Sunday school & office building. In 1980, Pastor John Moore began serving at B.B.C. As the church grew, a new sanctuary was built dedicated in 1985. In 1997, Pastor Alfred Maese began serving at B.B.C. and continues to minister faithfully to the congregation. God has blessed our church with many faithful people who have given and served sacrificially for the furtherance of the Gospel ministry. Our wonderful history encourages us to continue in serving, giving, and going for the glory of Jesus Christ.
Our church has been given the responsibility to edify believers in the truths of God's Word and evangelize the lost (Ephesians 4:12-15 & Matthew 28:18-20). Our goal is to see each believer in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ while sharing Christ with others. Our services and ministries are focused on preaching and teaching God's Word. As a family in Christ, we desire that everyone who visits will feel loved and welcomed. Join us as we move forward in Gospel ministry! "...that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;" (Colossians 1:9-10)
