Who Are We?

Indian Hills Baptist Church is a growing multi-generational family of believers in Jesus Christ committed to loving God and loving one another.  From the youngest to the oldest, we are thankful for the abundant ways the Lord blesses us, and we live with a zeal for life and excitement for the future.  Our highest desire is to be faithful to Jesus Christ, living according to His word, by the aid of His Holy Spirit.

Founded in 1955 as Silver Heights Baptist Church, our church has a storied history.  Today, the Lord is busy writing a new chapter in our story and He’s doing amazing new things in and through our church!

We just called our new pastor on June 10, 2018, and you can learn about him and his family here.
