2. I suppose the beginnings of Spring Creek started back in 1984 at Liberty University. While working on my B.S. degree God seemed to put the notion of starting a church in my home town in Terre Haute, Indiana. An assignment given by one of my professors was to develop a preliminary plan of planting a hypothetical church in a town in the United States. I chose Terre Haute. But as I worked through this assignment, I quickly began to realize there was more to this than just an assignment, I sensed God was trying to tell me that He wanted me to go back and actually start a church. Little did I know that within five years and a path only God could have laid out that Spring Creek became a reality. In January of 1989 Spring Creek, known as Bethel Baptist Church (we changed the name in 1998) held its first worship in the renovated garage and house of Gary and Kaye Blackburn with about 25 adults and children. In June of 1991 roughly 50 people worshipped for the first time in a newly built building on Marquette Avenue. In 2004, after much prayer, we made the decision to purchase a larger facility and eventually move the congregation to the building located at 800 E. Haythorne Avenue. The building needed major renovation to serve as a church since it was previously a go-cart racing barn. With the Lord's help and a people with a mind to work (Nehemiah 4:6 "So build we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work") we moved into the renovated building in December 2006 after selling the property on Marquette Avenue. Renovation is on going but the added space has blessed us with many new classrooms and a multi-purpose area that can be used as a gymnasium for our youth. We praise our Lord Jesus Christ for the realization of this vision. (Proverbs 29:18 "Where there is no vision, the people will perish.")
