Church History

The first organizational meetings of Midway Heights Baptist Chapel were held in May 1975, in private homes.  In July 1975 the first service was held at Midway Heights Elementary School. A “Together We Build” banquet was held in April 1977 as members began the fundraising effort to build a church building. In June of the same year, Calvary Baptist Church accepted duties as the Mother Church for Midway Heights Baptist Chapel to assist where needed. One year after the fund raising began, a  ground breaking ceremony was held on April 23, 1978 with the first service on December 17, 1978 in the new church building. On November 8, 1987, an organizing service was held for Midway Heights Baptist Church with 96 charter members. As needs grew, the church voted to expand in December 2001.  

On May 4, 2003 the new addition was dedicated to continue doing God’s work. The new construction included a choir room, two classrooms, new restrooms, a pastor’s office, a secretary’s office, and additional basement space; all built debt free.  The church continued to seek God’s will and direction as it was determined additional education space was needed as well as a multipurpose area.  Through God’s abundant provision these needs were met through another construction phase which was completed in November 2015.  We give God the glory and praise for His love and blessings for which He has bestowed upon Midway Heights Baptist Church.
