"I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.”


- John 13:34

Our History...

On May 30, 1868 Hamilton Baptist Church was organized at the home of Reverend B. Whitely. It was first named “The Baptist Church of Hamilton, Missouri,” and Reverend B. Whitely was called as its first pastor. In 1869 the church was admitted to the North Liberty Baptist Association and now we are a member of the Heartland Baptist Association.

As a Cooperative Baptist Fellowship church we emphasize fellowship, ministry, mission, worship and discipleship.

Our church is steeped in history.  Since the beginning we have had many pastors and our share of ups and downs, but we have always remained steadfast and committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We believe we have a spot for you and your family in our congregation. Please explore our website and contact us if you have any questions. Better yet, come visit us one Sunday morning.  We would love to have you.

Our vision

At Hamilton Baptist Church we are a loving family of Christians. Like pilgrims on a journey together we believe we are called to love God and neighbor, serve one another and those in our community, grow in Christlikeness, and tell the story of God’s love. Any who wish to journey with us would do well to love, serve, grow and tell.

Our mission

  • Love God and neighbor
  • Serve God by serving one another and those in our community
  • Grow in Christlikeness
  • Tell the story of God's love
