God is Still There

One of the highlights of the Baptist History Tour I took last week was a service at the old building for the Silver Creek Baptist Church at Charlestown, Indiana. Walter Ziglar preached a powerful message and the presence of God was very real with us at the end of the service. We stood for several minutes in silence as the Lord worked in our hearts. We can only praise the Lord for His continuing presence. A cemetery adjoins the church building in which are buried William and Elizabeth McCoy. William McCoy founded the church in 1798 and it was the first non-Catholic church in Indiana territory. His son, Isaac McCoy, was saved and ordained out of this church. He went on to be a great missionary to the Indians. It was for Isaac McCoy that the Baptist Historic Preservation Society placed a beautiful marker at the First Baptist Church of Fort Wayne, Indiana, last week.
