Our Background and Philosophy
In the summer of 2009 God burdened the hearts of Pastor Mike and Neva Bardon to start a home Bible study with several people in Santaquin that wanted a local Bible teaching church to be established. This led to worshiping together on Sundays at the CS Lewis Academy. In April of 2010 the Santaquin Baptist Church was organized with a constitution and election of officers.
Pastor Bardon has been an independent Baptist missionary in Utah since 1973. He and his wife have started and developed several churches around the State (in Orem, St. George, Gunnison, and Vernal).
Their ministry has been one that provides a biblical alternative to those who have been involved in religion but who want a more personal relationship with the Lord and assurance of eternal life. Their approach to winning people to the Lord is not anti-religion, but to simply share with folks from the Bible who Christ really is and what He has done for them.
The worship style at Santaquin Baptist Church includes lively gospel hymns and choruses enjoyed in the traditional way.
