We have a somewhat traditional gathering with a mix of old and new songs to sing to God, prayers, giving, and Bible readings and message. We have a very friendly group at Covey Hill, and it will be hard to visit and not be introduced to somebody. Our gatherings are relaxed and reverent. Do not put on your Sunday best (unless you want to), and leave your church “mask” at home. Collars and camo, all are welcome. We are all sinners needing the Savior, Jesus Christ.


Our Mission

Our mission is simple. We exist to glorify God by developing committed followers of Jesus Christ who will attract others to Him. Happily, you don’t have to be perfect to fulfill this mission. And you won’t have to do it alone. We look forward to loving and caring for you and together with you, growing as a body of believers for the glory of Jesus Christ.


our vision

This is our vision for carrying out the mission to make disciples: 

Our church worships God by regularly Gathering, Growing, and Going in order to be people who love God, love one another, and obey him in his mission in Gobles, Paw Paw, and Van Buren County.


Our Story

Covey Hill Baptist Church has its beginning in a group of followers of Jesus deciding to assemble regularly to worship God in 1844. We intend to keep our past in view. It reminds us of God's faithfulness, our dependence on him, and who really builds the church. Aware of where things have been, we have hope and humility for where God might take us as we follow our Lord Jesus by the Spirit.


The Movement

The church is not the building; it is the people who follow Jesus. We believe the gospel of Jesus is the news of redemption that changes our lives and the lives of others. And we believe that God gets this news of redemption across through his people, the community of the Kingdom, as they live humbly, love riskily, and serve joyfully where God has put them. Join us as we follow Jesus for the sake of the world.
