Midway Bible Baptist Church is located in Fishersville, Virginia. and was founded in 1977 where it was originally located in a building on Rt. 250 in Fishersville. Later, property was purchased and a building was underway. Many special services were held there on the property in a tent that had many different types and colors of patterns for the walls and plastic coverings to keep the rain out and the heat in.
Soon, a building was ready and the church moved indoors. A better tent was purchased and camp meetings and special services were still held there on the grounds under it which gave them that "old-time" tent revival atmosphere. Many unforgettable services were held in that tent also.
In 1980, Midway started a Christian School then later that year A fire destroyed the church along with personal letters and memorabilia from such great old preachers like Oliver B. Green, but after a rebuilding period Midway was back in a building and growing again.
In 1983 the Church purchased 56 acres in Stuarts Draft, VA off what is now called Howardsville Turnpike on Cider Mill Rd. The church holds Primary, Junior and Teen camps there along with the annual Campout/Cookout Family Retreat every September along with a few other special Banquets, etc. This property is equipped with 2 lakes, one for swimming and one for boating and fishing. It also has a miniature golf course, horseshoe pits, outdoor pavillion, concession area, separate dorms for girls and boys, shower building and a large house with dining hall for indoor meetings and food service and preparation. There are campsites with full hookups also.
In 1989, the main building began renovation to accomodate more Sunday School rooms, an office, a new baptistry, a choir loft and platform and positioned the auditorium the way it is today. Later, new carpet was added and and a few years ago we also purchased new seating for the auditorium.
We have recently expanded our kitchen and have just finished our new fellowship hall and patio. We have added 2 huge bathrooms that are handicap accessible.
May the Lord bless as we expand for His Glory.
