Our Local Church Story

Along the banks of Salado Creek, near where the church held camp meetings.

Salado, Texas

In the summers of 1917 and 1918, a group of people called Nazarenes held camp meeting revivals on the banks of Salado Creek. The group began meeting in Armstrong School, and later purchased the Sulpher Springs School building where they met until 1939.

In 1939, the church-sponsored tent revival services in Belton, Texas, and with the help of the San Antonio District Church of the Nazarene, purchased a city lot at the corner of Eighth Ave. and Pearl St. From 1940 until the church sold that property to the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, the church met in the small rock-faced church building. For seven years after the sale of the building, the church met in Belton Middle School, Belton High School, and UMHB’s business building, moving in for Sunday service and moving out after worship.

On October 1, 2017, the church celebrated 100 years of Walking in Faith, and is now looking forward to the next 100 years!
