Beginning as a Bible study in the 1970's, and organized into a church on May 17, 1980, Moab Baptist Church continues to be a soulwinning church seeking to reach our area for the cause of Christ. In addition to regular services on Sunday morning and evening, we also have year-round Sunday School for all ages, a Wednesday Bible Study, and ministries for children, teenagers, and adult men and women.
Since its founding, our church has had six pastors - Ed Butler, Paul Chappell, John Crater, David Halcomb, Roy O'Quinn, and Cole Howe.
Moab is the county seat of Grand County, Utah, with a population of less than 6,000 year-around-residents, while the combined city and county's population (namely Spanish Valley) is around 10,000.
Moab and the surrounding area are the destinations for outdoor enthusiasts, and we have become known as the Mountain Bike Capital of the World. Whether a person enjoys hunting, fishing, rock climbing, four-wheeling, mountain biking, hiking, BASE jumping, sight-seeing, photography, or rafting they will find a lot to do here.
The LaSal Mountains rise to almost 13,000 feet and provide a great backdrop against the red cliffs which surround Moab. The Colorado River runs just north of the city limits. Canyonlands and Arches National Parks (just two of Utah's "Mighty Five" national parks), Dead Horse Point State Park, Lions Back, and the famous Slickrock Bike Trail are in the immediate area. Mesa Verde National Park, Lake Powell, Monument Valley, Hovenweep National Monument and the Colorado National Monument are within a couple hours drive from Moab.
