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