After serving a tour at Ramstein, Germany in the Air Force, John Beach personally experienced how important it is to have a church family to help him grow spiritually.
In 1976, he returned with his wife, Elva, and planted High Point Baptist Church in Ulm, Germany. The name came from the church that supported them and sent them—High Point Baptist Chapel in Geigertown, PA. After the Army base in Ulm closed, God led Pastor John and Elva to again plant High Point in Vilseck in 1993.
First, we met in Amberg, then we moved into a store-front building in Schlicht. In 2004, the Beach’s son, Duane, and his wife, Daylin, came to work in the ministry. In May of 2005, we moved to our third location in Vilseck and then the next month Duane Beach became the Lead Pastor with Pastor John continuing to serve as Mission's Pastor.
Now, we have been serving God and the Vilseck/Graf communities for over 30 years and God has moved us to our fourth location in the Industry Park of Vilseck.
Our first priority is to help you come to God through the door that Jesus opened for us with His Blood. If you’re already a believer, we want to help you grow! We love God’s Word because it is the tool that the Holy Spirit uses best to make us like Christ. Of course, having military personnel in the church means people don’t stay for too long. But, we get excited when we think about all the different places in the world we can touch by carrying out our mission here in Vilseck, Germany!
We are here for people like you! Come join us as we grow closer to our God.
