Just tell me what to do and I will do it, Lord.
As long as I live I’ll wholeheartedly obey.
Make me walk along the right paths,
for I know how delightful they really are.
Psalm 119:33-35





The first service was held in our new building July 1, 2012.
It never would have happened without the constant and unwavering Blessings from God.
He was with us every step of the way, and to Him, we give ALL the Glory!

May 15th, 2011 Official Sod Turning!

(Eph 3:20-21) Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, (21) to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.


It was a blustery day indeed but that didn't deter our congregation from holding this monmumental event! The wind was indeed God's blessing as it kept a good portion of the mosquitoes from landing.
Pastor Rick Williams delivered an enthusiastic speach focused on 'Giving The Glory to God'.
"We are gathered together this morning as a Christian covenant community. That means our starting point is God. And, not just our starting point but our ending point and every point in between as well. As a Christian covenant community we want to focus on God and not just ourselves. We want to bring glory to God and not glory to man."

Speech by Pastor Rick Williams.

Past Chairman of the Board, Don Harink then gave a poignant message from the heart reminding us to focus on what is important...that it is not about us... not about our wants and needs, and that this building plan be met with co-operation, understanding, faith, and above all, to let God be in charge.

The official groundbreaking began with a lot of cheers and clapping, and the Battle Lake Community Baptist Church's new building project is underway!
God Bless everyone who is making this possible, and "To God Be The Glory!"

    Here's how you can help:

  • Pray for us.
    Your prayers are most welcome and appreciated. "Prayer means that I never have to say, "There's nothing I can do." I can always do something, something great, as great as Jesus did. Even greater. I don't have to just stand there - I can pray something. Excerpt from Don't just stand there, Pray something, by Ronald Dunn. Prayer, is the secret weapon of the kingdom of God!

  • Come visit us and speak with us.
    We welcome all visitors to Battle Lake Baptist Church. If you'd like to come by and see our brand new church, please feel free to come join us for a Sunday Service!

  • Donate Funds
    Our building fund is complete. The church is fully paid for and we have funds in the building account to do the finishing touches and landscaping. God is Good!

    “But who am I, and who are my people,
    that we should be able to give as generously as this?
    Everything comes from you,
    and we have given you only what comes from your hand.
    We are aliens and strangers in your sight,
    as were all our forefathers.
    Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope.

    O LORD our God,
    as for all this abundance that we have provided
    for building you a temple for your Holy Name,
    it comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you.”
    1 Chronicles 29:14-16
