02 Jan Carmel Community Baptist Church Begins
On Easter Sunday 1988, our church first began as Carmel Community Baptist Church. We were a daughter church of Bethesda Baptist Church of Brownsburg, which sent 38 “loaners” to begin a Bible-believing church in the Carmel area. Our purpose was “the evangelism of unbelievers, and the care and nurturing of believers, leading to a maturing, reproducing Christian lifestyle.” Within a year, most of the people from Bethesda returned to their home church and only two of the “loaner” families remained. By this time a number of people from the community had become a part of our congregation.
