On May 24th several families met with Stan and Donna Rockafellow. From that day on God has continued to open doors and bless us as we serve Him. Housing was quickly located for the Rockafellow family and a meeting place became available in the Eliot Grange Hall. With the help of the Conservative Baptist Home Missions Society, a plan was implemented to become self-supporting in 3 years. On Sept 4, 1983 Eliot Baptist officially opened its doors with 84 people in attendance. The families God sent had many gifts and the church immediately began ministering as God provided the workers. A constitution was written, accepted and approved by the church body on Jan 6, 1985.

In 1987 we purchased our present property on Route 236. That same year our congregation asked Pastor Stan to remain as our Pastor and he accepted. We broke ground on Sept 9, 1987 and held our first service in our new building on Oct 16, 1988.  Over the years, the Lord has continued to bless us as the church grows in size as an outstretched arm of Gospel love to the surrounding communities.
