History

It's important to remember our past as we look to the future. In 1965, over 90 committed servants from Bethany Evangelical Free Church (EFC) joined Pastor Bob Fallt in making great sacrifices to establish a witness onthe corner of Buckeye and Vondron Roads, to be known as Buckeye EFC. Later that same year Bethany also started Blackhawk EFC.

The initial Buckeye building

Fast forward to April, 1997 when the Buckeye EFC congregation enthusiastically voted to begin the process of relocating our ministry to Sprecher and Dominion Roads, on what is now the far east side of Madison.

In December 1997, the “Planting Seeds for Growth” Capital Campaign began raising funds to build a new facility on Sprecher Road.

Construction began in the spring of 1999. Door Creek Phase 1 was completed and the congregation moved in for Christmas services in 2000.


When we see these pictures and hear the story of our more than 40-year history, we can’t help but think:

• There were courageous leaders at the helm, with vision.

• There were great sacrifices by God’s people.

• God has been faithful to us and has prospered His work in and through His people.

We believe God has great plans for the future of Door Creek. Plans that include multiple sites, expanded international and domestic missions, and a larger facility for ministry on Dominion Drive.

We invite you to join us in this vision, faith, service and sacrifice to "change lives to change the world."
