50 YEARS AND COUNTING
It was over fifty years ago that a group of seventeen believers founded Bible Baptist Church of Terre Haute, Indiana. With a vision rooted in the Word of God and its authority, and a goal to be a lighthouse to both Terre Haute and the world, this church was established on October 20, 1963, in a rented building on College Avenue.
The present structure, located on the corner of 25th and Margaret, was completed in 1968 then later expanded. Terre Haute Christian School, now Bible Baptist Academy, offers grades pre-school through twelfth grade and was established in 1974.
Because God has given the church a great commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations, Bible Baptist Church places a strong emphasis on missions. We currently support over forty missionaries both here and abroad as well as several Bible colleges that are dedicated to preparing young men and women to serve God with their lives.
Bible Baptist Church also has a strong Christian education program. In addition to our Christian school, we have Sunday School for all ages, a strong youth ministry, and an exciting children’s ministry. Our bus ministry brings children in weekly to hear God’s Word. In past years, we have seen fruit from this ministry as many have returned and testified to the accomplishments and benefits it had in their own lives. Some of our present adult members have themselves been a product of the bus ministry!
We praise and thank the Lord for our heritage and His blessings over these fifty years. Our goal is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ until He comes again!
