HISTORY:
Hope Baptist Church, Middleport began in December 1975. A Bible Study Group began at the home of Larry and Susie Bailey. There were seven who attended the first services. The study was moved to the pastor’s home on Main Street.  In 1976 the present property located at 570 Grant Street was purchased. On the property there were two buildings for use as Sunday school classes, a place for worship and fellowship with land to build in the future. Dedication services were held on May 8, 1977.   In September 1984 Buckeye Baptist Builders remolded the building. Blood River Baptist Association bought a Steeple for the building in December of 1986.  The First Southern Baptist Church, Pomeroy, assumed the sponsorship of the mission.  Constitution services were held on October 1, 1989. The present brick building was erected in 1992 in front of the house. Dedication service was held on March 1, 1993.  During the 1990 two missionary families stayed at a house donated by Hope Baptist Church while they were on furlough. The church continues to minister within the Middleport community.
