Following several weeks of developing a fresh statement of belief and praying for God’s continued blessing, this group met in area homes, began contributing their resources, and selected leaders among themselves of whom they believed met the criteria of Acts 6:3; that is, “men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom…” These men became temporary leaders until the group felt they could call someone to come and lead them as a Pastor. The Church took the name – Alpine Bible Church, wanting to identify with their surrounding culture, and hold high their desire to be led by the Holy Scriptures. Incorporation soon followed and the church called Rev. Stewart to come be their pastor in June of 1998.
In 2009 Joel Corley, Assistant Director of Steppin’ Out Mission, joined our pastoral staff as an Assoc. of Discipleship & Missions. He and his wife, Megan, brought a wonderful balance to our ministry, leading our people on cross-culture mission trips and pointing us toward meeting needs in our surrounding area.
God has definitely placed His hand upon this Church and confirmed to us that our existence is not by mistake nor by man’s determined strength, but by His Spirit. Our purpose statement is simply this: “To Know Christ Jesus and to Make Him Known.” And may this always be at the center of Alpine Bible Church!
