The church had its beginning in May of 1969 when the Grace Baptist Church of Carlisle sent Harry (Mike) Hocker to establish a church in Shippensburg. In October of 2006, Craig L. Harris, a graduate of Westminster Theological Seminary and former Associate Pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Carlisle, was called to pastor the church. Missions-minded from the very beginning, the church has enthusiastically supported the work of missionaries in various parts of the world. A burden for believers in the former Soviet republics in the early 1980's led to the beginnings of a ministry of translating, publishing and distributing books that continues to this day. Through the years, a variety of short-term mission projects have been encouraged and pursued.  Members of the church have been active both in the establishment and operation of several local ministries. These include Pregnancy Ministries Inc., the Biblical Education Center Inc., and Bible Release Time.  Our congregation eagerly looks toward the future, praying for and anticipating the Lord's ongoing direction and blessing, as we seek to be a means in His hand of making the Lord Jesus Christ and His glorious Gospel known both here in our own community and to the uttermost parts of the earth.
