"For The Wages of Sin is death; but the Gift of God is Eternal Life
Through Jesus Christ our Lord" - Romans 6:23

History 

                                   

 Shoaff Park Baptist Church was the first of thirteen Baptist church planting efforts by the Imanuel Baptist Church of Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1956. The Church was formally organized and adopted it's constitution on April 3, 1957 with 23 charter members from a nucleus of eight families. The church was accepted into the Indiana Fellowship of Regular Baptist Churches in September, 1957. The three and one half acres on St. Joe road was purchased in July of 1957.

Over the next ten years, the Lord blessed the church with steady growth. An old farmhouse on the property was used for Sunday School until the church began construction of a new sanctuary and Sunday School facility in June 1966. The new auditorium was dedicated on January 22, 1967 with Dr. Paul Jackson, the National Representative of the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches preaching. In 1972 the church added the Annex to provide additional space for continued growth. On October 9, 1995 the church made its final mortgage payment, allowing Shoaff Park Baptist Church to call its first full-time Assistant Pastor, John Perkey.

The ministry of SPBC today includes Sunday School, Junior Church, Nursery, AWANA, Vacation Bible School, Shoaff Youth Team (S.Y.T.), Primetimers, Women in the Word, Men Committed to ministry,  Adult Choir, and a Home and Foreign Missions Program.
