Hunt Valley Baptist Church History
In the history of Hunt Valley Baptist Church, we have seen God do some amazing things. In our foyer hangs a plaque that states "To God be the glory, great things He hath done!" Only God knows what the future holds; but as we follow Him, we seek His continued blessings.
A New Church Is Born!
On April 25, 2004, in a small corner storefront, Hunt Valley Baptist Church opened its doors for the very first time. Right from the beginning, it was clear that God was doing something special in this new church. Immediately, the congregation began to grow and chartered with 32 members on December 5, 2004.
The Early Years
Jesus said, "If I be lifted up... I will draw all men unto me. " John 12:32. With a burden to reach our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Hunt Valley Baptist Church continued to grow every year. Though space was limited and numbers were small, God was laying a foundation as families continued to come and we all grew together in Christ. God has allowed Hunt Valley Baptist Church to grow every year, not just numerically, but spiritually as well.
Excitement was growing and so was the congregation. Another building was desperately needed, but to buy property seemed almost impossible. The whole church family fervently prayed and sacrificially gave while a miracle began to unfold. On April 26, 2009, HVBC held its first service in their newly renovated auditorium on the beautiful church campus that God had provided.
The Going Growing Church
Since we have been in our current facility, God has brought many new people through the doors of HVBC. The fellowship throughout the church family has been sweet as we have seen God's hand of blessing on our special days and in our service to Him week to week. There is no doubt that at Hunt Valley Baptist Church you will find something REAL, something EXCITING, and something DIFFERENT! Who knows?
This might be just what you are looking for!
Believe and You'll See What Faith Does
The Lord brought about another miracle in 2012. When all was said and done, we stood amazed at God's mighty hand at work among us. It started in June when our founding pastor and a church member showed up to the property owner's home the week he decided to sell the property. The church voted unanimously to pursue acquiring the property. Without any money for a down payment, God's people prayed and fasted. The owner agreed to a price, God woke up our banker in the middle of the night, and when we arrived at settlment we had no idea how much we would need. When all the costs were calculated and we sat down at the table for settlement we had $15.25 too much. God met the need, and we are now the stewards of the most beautiful piece of property in Hunt Valley. We cannot help but think that if we follow the Will of God, that He will bring us to this promised land with a brand new auditorium and many more people to minister to.
The new facility is truly amazing; however the change brought about in the lives of individuals is an even greater blessing. For many, new hope has been found and true purpose discovered. We are truly humbled by what the Lord has done at Hunt Valley Baptist Church and look forward to the future with great anticipation.
