A BRIEF HISTORY
Bible Baptist Church, El Reno, Oklahoma had its beginning in March, 1937, as a mission out of Bible Baptist Church, Oklahoma City. Reverend S. Lee Kidd began holding services in his home at 1205 Sunset Drive here in El Reno.
An open air revival began in May of 1937. Records indicate that the meeting continued for a fifteen weeks, having 35 people were saved, and there were 21 additions to the church.
In 1946, Bible Baptist purchased a bus and may have started the church bus ministry in El Reno. The new year began with newspaper articles advertising “The only church in El Reno that provides free transportation to and from services.”
In 1994, with Steve Ostten as pastor, the church voted to begin giving sacrificially toward the construction of the Family Center. In 1998, construction began and various men in the congregation donated many hours of labor, using their skills to save labor costs and to finish the interior. The Family Center was completed and began full use in February of 2001.
The history of Bible Baptist Church has been to preach the truths of God’s Word without apology and to carry the Gospel to this community and its surrounding areas. Our current Pastor Adam Pearson has a desire to see the Lord do what he has been doing the last 80 Years at Bible Baptist Church!
