HISTORY:
In September 2014, a church in Huntington, West Virginia was declining and was going to close.  A dedicated group from this church saw a vision from God to create a new work.  This new work would be across the river in Proctorville, Ohio.  With much prayer the Highlawn Baptist Church, Huntington, West Virginia changed its name and with the intent to relocate.  Thus The Crossing Baptist Church was formed on September 14, 2014.  They chose the name "The Crossing" as a symbol of crossing the river to begin a new work. Dr. Ricky Ray was called as the pastor. 

The congregation began meeting in a garage in West Virginia while property was being purchased in Proctorville.  Their new location would be in a mall located behind McDonalds on State Route 107 in Proctorville.  This location was purchased and renovations began. Launch date was Easter 2015.

 During the first 5 weeks of worship services, 4 people were saved with 2 redications.  This vision of the church is "To send others out". They are currently sponsoring a church plant in the Cincinnati Area.

First Baptist Church, Waverly Ohio assumed the sponsorship in 2015.

After a lot of hard work and much prayer a Grand Opening Date at their new facilities was held on February 14, 2016.

God is using this congregation in unique ways in the Proctorville area.
