Warren Missionary Baptist Church (WMBC) began August 20, 1967 in a store front corner building at Federal & Packard. Pastor O.J. Huchel, with a small congregation of faithful members, started WMBC to reach the city of Warren and the surrounding communities with the Gospel. The church relocated to property on E. 10 Mile Road, where it currently resides.
As the Lord blessed, and the church grew, a new building was completed in 1971. In July 1975, New Hope Baptist Church merged with WMBC. Pastor Huchel served as the pastor of WMBC for a little over 13 years before he retired.
Paul McWherter became the new pastor and also served a little over 13 years. In 1980, the WMBC purchased property from the school behind the church, which gave us almost three acres of property. The church went through two building programs during Pastor McWherter's pastorate. The church enlarged the sanctuary and added a fellowship hall.
Charles Smith assumed the pastorate in August 1993. The church went through another building program in 1997 enlarging the sanctuary and connecting the fellowship hall. The existing buildings were also remodeled during this time. In 2009, Pastor Smith retired and resigned as Pastor of WMBC.
Walter Jones became the Pastor of WMBC in November 2010. In 2014, he oversaw the remodeling of the nursery and the basement of the original church building which houses six Sunday school rooms, a Missions Closet, storage areas and two bathrooms. As the church has grown, God has supplied our every need.
Warren Missionary Baptist Church is a warm, friendly, family-oriented church. It is a church that preaches and teaches the old-time religion, sings the old-fashioned hymns of the faith, and believes only in the King James Bible.
The Lord has truly blessed WMBC through the years, and we are excited about what the Lord has in store for our future.
