Jesus Saves Missionary Baptist Church was organized on July 29, 1979, at the home of our founder and Pastor, Elder W. E. Whitfield.
Several names were put before the group and the name of Jesus Saves Missionary Baptist Church was chosen. Our church was incorporated in May of 1980.
We initially held service at the Concord Community Center on West 19th Avenue in Gary. On February 22, 1981, we purchased and moved into our present location at 464 Roosevelt Street.
After moving into our new church home, with the blessings of the Lord and the foresight of our Pastor, we were able to burn the mortgage in two years. The Lord also gave our Pastor the vision to start a bus ministry that served our community for many years providing both short and long distance trips.
We welcome all visitors and invite you to become a part of the Jesus Saves church family. Feel free to contact us at 219-885-5854 or Pastor Whitfield at 219-883-1211.
