Our Story

Our History

On April 1, 2012, one week before Easter, two small groups of Christians who had been meeting for Bible study in their homes—one in Dublin and one in Stephenville—merged together with a shared vision that God desired to birth a new church with a commitment to supporting world missions eagerly, studying God’s Word carefully and building relationships deeply.

Their respective group leaders served as co-pastors of Elk Ridge Baptist Church from its inception, taking the name for the church from Elk Ridge Estates on Alexander Rd. in Stephenville where they hoped to build a permanent facility in the coming years.

For a short time the church met in a member’s home in Stephenville before moving into a meeting room at Motel 6 where they worshiped together for almost a year. On August 11, 2013 the church moved into a facility at 634 East Rd in Stephenville. Exactly nine months later on Mother’s Day, May 11, 2014, Dr. Daniel McCabe came as the church’s first full-time pastor.

We have undergone many massive remodels of our current worship facility on East Road to accommodate current growth.

Our Future

Architectural drawings have been prepared for a new facility, and we hope to be worshiping in the new facility soon!
