In 2003, five Christian families were moved by their faith to establish an independent, fundamental church northwest of Owasso that would be harmonious with the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. Through the power of prayer, hard work and financial support, these families quickly began to move forward with their vision of having such a church. They were sent out of another Baptist church on the southeast side of Owasso.
As they searched for property and a place to worship, they were led to "The Log Cabin" church building which is located on 116th St, about one mile west of Hwy 169. That property was purchased and shortly thereafter became known as Bible Baptist Church. The first worship service was held on January 4th, 2004. By May of 2004, the congregation had grown, and they were ready to officially organize as a church with a constitution and bylaws. Twenty-nine charter members, including the pastor and three other officers, signed the documents.
In the summer of 2018, the church unanimously voted to call Pastor Claud Slate as its new pastor. The Slate family made the move from Arkansas to Collinsville, OK to lead the church going forward. Under Pastor Slate's leadership, we soon changed our church name to Fireside Baptist Church.
In the summer of 2021, we were able to purchase two additional acres adjacent to our property with a desire and anticipation to build, grow, and expand our church family and buildings. We have a wonderful past, and we look forward to what God has in store for our future.
Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Come visit us at Fireside Baptist Church. We would love to meet you!
