Who We Are

Our Mission

To produce and release spiritual leaders who know and express the authentic Christ to Morrow County and the world.

Our History

The history of the Edison Enterprise Baptist Church starts back in 1960 with three brothers in Christ, Warren Hamilton, Elmer Green and Maxwell (Mac) Evans. The Holy Spirit was leading Pastor Warren Hamilton to Morrow County to start a church. At the same time, Brother Elmer Green was being led in the same direction. They recruited the help of Brother Mac Evans, who lived and worked in Morrow County, to begin to search for available property.

Together, the three of them began to seek the Lord’s direction. Eventually, they were led to Edison, where Mac’s son was in a car club called “Angel Wheels,” that met in a garage on Boundary Street. The car club was willing to move to another location. As the three men of God stood on the sidewalk in front of the building that they had been led to, the Spirit began to move. The Holy Spirit confirmed that this was the location of where the church would start. One day, in 1960 the first gathering took place. A total of seven adults and sixteen children met, including; Pastor Warren, his wife Hazel and their children, Jerry, Jenny, Linda, Joe, Suzanna and Cindy. Brother Elmer, his wife Kathleen and their children, Shanna, Stephen, Cornelius, Diana and Robin. Bother Mac, his wife Mildred and their children, Charles, Betty and Edith. Also, one sister in Christ, Maxine Skaggs and her children Diane and Scott.

A great vision was given to these godly men and women. A vision of many coming to know Jesus as Savior, a storehouse and much more to be accomplished for the cause of Christ.

The Building, which originally had no indoor plumbing, was ready for use after a lot of work was done to it. People began attending. The congregation grew to the point where the building needed to be expanded. At one point, services were being held while one wall was completely gone as the work to add on had begun.

In 1969 a new brother in Christ, Roger Fletcher, became instrumental in renovating and expanding the building, which now included a sanctuary and three Sunday School rooms. The church purchased the land across the street, tore down the store and put in a shelter house and a parking lot. The youth would meet in the shelter house on Sunday nights in the summer and in the fire station next door in the winter. The Lord was blessing and continuing to move.

In 1980, Brother Roger, and his wife Linda, gifted the church with a parcel of land on State Route 95 at the edge of Edison. A brick church, with plenty of parking and room to grow, was built and Edison Enterprise Baptist Church moved into their new and current location.

In 1994, the church, now under the leadership of Pastor Ed Colegrove, built the shelter house. In 2002 the land where the Harvest House and Garage Ministry garage sit was purchased. In 2008, after operating out of several locations the previous 4 years, we were able to build a permanent home for the EEBC Food Pantry on land purchased the previous year. In 2012 the softball field was installed and has been home to several championship teams!

In 2012, Brother Roger again heeded the call of the Lord and gave the church a building that sat on his property. The building was disassembled, moved and then reconstructed into what is now the Fellowship Hall.

Since the 1960’s the Lord has blessed this little church in Edison Ohio. From the time 23 people met in a car garage to the campus of buildings that we have now, it is all because of God’s provision. It is an example of what He will do with us, if we just obey.

Our Doctrinal Statement


We believe that the Scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God, in whole and in part, error-free in the original writings and the supreme authority of faith and practice for the believer in Jesus Christ. We further believe that there is but one true interpretation of any Biblical passage and this is only found when one accurately applies the literal-grammatical-historical method of interpretation. (Psalm 119:160; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Hebrews 1:1-2, 4:12)


We believe there is but one living and true God who is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable. We further believe that God is one in essence while existing in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Though each person of the Godhead possesses precisely the same nature and attributes, each function differently in respect to God’s purposes and dealings with man. (Deuteronomy 4:39; 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians13:14)


The first person of the Trinity orders and directs all things according to His own purpose, pleasure, and grace. The Father is sovereign in creation, providence, and redemption. He has decreed all things that come to pass for His own glory. He graciously involves Himself in the affairs of men, hears and answers prayer, and saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (2 Chronicles 29:11; Psalm 103:19; Matthew 6:9; John 5:19-24; Ephesians 1:2-6)


The second person of the Trinity is both the eternal Son of God and virgin-born Son of man. Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, surrendered nothing of His deity during His earthly life. Having led a sinless life, He satisfied the Father’s justice concerning sin by His substitutionary death. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His physical ascension and His visible return to earth to establish His earthly kingdom. (John 1:14-18; Acts1:11; Romans 3:24-26; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 2:17-18; Revelation 20:11-15)


The third person of the Trinity executes the will of God in the world of men. It is the Holy Spirit who applies the salvation that Jesus Christ secured through His death on the cross. It is the Holy Spirit who convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. It is the Holy Spirit who empowers the church to live a lifestyle pleasing to God, endowing it with special gifts which equip believers to accomplish distinct ministries, planned beforehand by God the Father. (John 3:1-8; 15-16; 16:4-15; 1 Corinthians 12; Galatians 5:16-25; Ephesians 1:13-14; 5:18-21)


We believe that mankind was directly created in the image of God to enjoy His fellowship and to fulfill God’s will on earth. Man sinned by voluntary act of personal disobedience to the will of God; as a result, all human beings are spiritually dead and subject to the certainty of physical death. The fall of mankind was a non-repeatable historical fact; the effects of which are transmitted to all human beings, each of whom is born with a sinful nature and sins habitually in thought, word, and deed. (Genesis 1:26-27; 2:7; 3:3- 4; Romans 1:18-32; 3:10-23; Ephesians 2:1-3) We believe that God created the human race male and female, and all conduct with the intent to adopt a sex/gender other than the one ordained by God at conception is contrary to God’s intent, and therefore sin. (Genesis 1:27; Matthew 19:4; Mark 10:6; Psalm 139:13)


We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins as the only sufficient, substitutionary sacrifice. All who believe in Him are declared justified by the Father on the grounds of Jesus’ death and resurrection. All who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by grace through faith have been regenerated by and baptized in the Holy Spirit. They become, thereby, the children of God, forever, and members of the one true church, the universal Body of Christ. This salvation will result in righteous living and good works as the believer submits their life to the control of the Holy Spirit who directs the life of the believer in harmony with the Word of God. (John 1:12; 3:16; 5:24; 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:21-26; 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; Titus 3:4-7; Hebrews 10:10-12; 1 John 5:11-13)


We believe that all who have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit belong to the one true universal church and are directed by the Scriptures to associate themselves in local, visible churches. The local church is the only scriptural representation of Christ’s invisible Church and consists only of regenerated believers. The local church is autonomous in its government and recognizes its own members for the biblical offices of elder and deacon. Two ordinances have been committed to the local church -Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The purpose of the church is to lead others to Christ, mature them in the faith, and equip them for personal ministry. (Matthew 16:13-28; 28:18-20; Acts 2:41-47; 4:1- 16; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29; Ephesians 2:19-22; 4:11-13; Hebrews 10:23-25; 1 Peter 5:1-3)


We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is immoral and therefore sin (Genesis 1:26-27, 2:24-25; Exodus 20:14, 17; Matthew 19:4-6, 9; Romans 1:18-31; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 15-20; Jude 7). Marriage ceremonies conducted on Fellowship Bible Church premises or by Fellowship Bible Church staff should represent the establishment of this covenant relationship.


We believe that prophetic scriptures teach the imminent return of Jesus Christ. (John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17) We believe the second coming of Christ will occur in a bodily, visible manner with great glory. (Acts 1:9-11; 1 Corinthians 15:20-28; Revelation 20:1-4)
