History of Spring Creek

 

Spring Creek’s history is fairly short, only reaching back to 1981, but we believe that our history is a rich history. In 1981, Trinity Baptist Church in downtown Oklahoma City saw the need to establish a satellite campus in “far northwest Oklahoma City” because of the recent growth and expansion in that part of the city. On September 13, 1981, 100 people gathered for worship at “Trinity North.” These first gatherings were held in a local elementary school.

Over time, however, the vision evolved from a satellite campus of Trinity to a mission church all its own. On May 1, 1983, ground was broken for the current facilities located at 11701 N. MacArthur in Oklahoma City. In April, 1984, the name Spring Creek Mission was chosen. Services were held in the new building on Father’s Day, June 17, 1984. On January 6, 1985, Spring Creek Baptist Church was constituted with the pastor, Steve Graham, preaching the special message.

Since those early days, Spring Creek has attempted to share the love of Jesus with the surrounding community and the world. Through the leadership of its pastors, Dr. Steven Graham, Dr. Brian Brewer, Dr. Preston Clegg, and John Jay Alvaro, the church continued towards the vision first espoused by the members of Trinity. In the coming years, we hope to continue in the rich tradition begun by our forebearers. As we remember our past, we seek to live into God's future by being a people of grace who worship together in this place of grace.
