Our Story


Providence Baptist Church started in 2001 as a small group of people committed to growing together in their walk of faith.  As they worshiped together it became evident that a church family had developed, and the biblical purposes of a church became clear.  In 2002 this growing church family purchased a private estate known by the Westerville community as the McVay horse ranch.  The classic looking horse stable was soon transformed into a beautiful modern sanctuary.  Its 7 acre property is seated beautifully on Hempstead Road near McVay Elementary School.  Providence hasn’t stopped growing and seeks to serve the Westerville area with the distinctives of an independent Baptist church that is firmly rooted in the authority of the Scriptures.  We emphasize expositional teaching, humble worship, and authentic relationships.  We strive to be grace based and Christ-centered in all that we do.
