History

In the summer of 1977 a Bible study on scriptural baptism was held. As a result of this study, there was a strong interest in starting a new church which held to Reformed doctrine and believer baptism. The first services were held in September of 1977. Eight adults and six children made up the body of the Reformed Baptist Church of Kalamazoo.

We first met in the YMCA on Maple Street. In 1979 property was purchased on Oakland Drive. This property was later sold and the money was used toward the building we currently own on Nichols Road.

We are so grateful for the godly leadership we have had throughout the years. Tom Koning, Lyle Raven, and Richard Kensinger all taught and served us faithfully as pastors. God has also seen fit, in His good providence, to cause us to grow and be used to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in this area and beyond. We look forword to serving him for many years to come.
