Church History


Bible Baptist Church, Mount Orab, Ohio was started in 1964 by a small group of believers and continued as a typical country church for several years.


Dr. Charles H. Smith pastored the church from December of 1982 until May of 2015. Under his leadership, the church experienced steady and dynamic growth. During his pastorate, the church purchased an additional 18 acres of land, completed 5 major building programs, and birthed several new baby churches in the tri-state area.


In May of 2015, the church called Rev. Ted R. House as pastor. Rev. House had previously worked on the staff at BBC, Mount Orab as the assistant for 21 years.


The original church was built in the late 1960s and was expanded in the late 1970s. In 1990, the church added a two-story Sunday school expansion to the original building and remodeled the original sanctuary. The gymnasium/multi-purpose building was completed in 1996. Then in 1999, the new 700-seat sanctuary was finished and in 2003, a new Sunday school building was built.  A corridor connecting the three main buildings was completed in 2012.


On Monday, April 10th, 2017, the church suffered the loss of the original church building by fire. The building was a complete loss. Thankfully, the fire did not spread to the rest of the complex. The rebuild was completed in October of 2018. The new building includes a chapel, fellowship room, adult Sunday school rooms, and the church offices.


Bible Baptist Church is an independent Baptist church. We still sing out of the hymnbook and preach and teach from the King James Bible. Bible Baptist Church, Mount Orab is a traditional, distinctively Baptist church, and holds to the 20 Articles of Faith.
