We were founded during the time when America was expanding west. It was during the days of William Moorman, a circuit riding preacher of 1835, Hartford Christian Church was birthed. The trading post, known as Hartford, was quickly abandoned because of the final location of the canal and Spencerville was established. Hartford Independent Baptist Church is all that remains of that almost forgotten time and trading post. The building of Hartford Church, was originally built in 1901, near an apple orchard planted by Jonny Appleseed. A rich history is here at Hartford and we would like for you to be a part. If you are in the area, you may just hear the old church bell from 1903 ringing to bring you in. We would love for you to come and visit, and become a part of our history.

Accept that Jesus paid for your sin penalty.Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." 4. Turn from life without Him to a life with Him. Ask Christ to change you.Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
