About Us


Established in 1951 in the small southern Ohio village of Arabia, Arabia Missionary Baptist Church was formed by the authority of the Coal Grove Missionary Baptist Church of Coal Grove, Ohio. 

The member constructed building in Arabia, Ohio served the membership in praise of our sovereign Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for 31 years.

In 1982 the church built a new building located at 6165 State Route 243, South Point, Ohio, where we now have our worship services today. 

The church maintained the founding name of Arabia Missionary Baptist Church after the move to Deering.

Elder Austin Fields was the first pastor of the church and served until his death in 1982. Elder Don Willis pastored the church in the new Deering building until his passing in 1992. Ron Henderson has served as pastor since that time.

Our desire is to give all the honor, praise, and glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We believe in the Sovereign God and through him is our life and very being.

You are invited to join us in spirit and in truth to worship our almighty Savior.
