Our Story

How it all started...

In the Fall of 1971, a vision was born. This vision for a Christ-Centered, evangelical church would start in the small community or Rubyville, OH. By the grace of God, this vision expanded, so much so, that the Church Of Rubyville Community not only affected it's rural town but would eventually have a global impact.  
On Saturday, September 18, 1971 Rubyville Community Church held their first ever meeting at the Rubyville Elementary School Building. The school served as the congregation's meeting place for 10 months.
Then, in the Spring of 1972, Rubyville Community Church purchased the Old Long Run Grade School and began renovations. Most of the renovations were done by the hard-working men and women of the church at that time. They dedicated the church unto the Lord on July 30, 1972, with approximately 300 people in attendance.
Fifteen years from the dedication service, the church organized a directory, which included a brief history of the church and testimonies of all that God had done. The church praised God for the funds that were given to not only sustain the church, but also to support outside missions with 14% of all income.

 Still today, the congregation of Rubyville Community strives to operate in the belief that "it is more blessed to give than to receive". As the historian closed out their remarks on all that had been accomplished within the 15 years of ministry, they praised The Lord for the 400 souls that had come to know Christ as Savior and Lord.
"We could tell of numerous ways God has directed in the life of our church, but just this brief history of our first 15 years together reveals a story of a blessed people." -1986 Directory of Rubyville Community Church

Expanding the vision...

In 2011, Rubyville Community Church decided to expand with  an entirely new facility. The old church, which could comfortably seat 300, was getting tight, and the global vision of the faithful congregation continued. The church construction was completed and the sanctuary was dedicated on April 10, 2011.
In 2019, the average attendance for Rubyville Community Church was 575. While we do serve a large group of people, it is our goal that every person knows that they are part of our family. We have seen countless souls come to know Jesus through our services, live streams, radio broadcasts, television ministry and the work of several outreach ministries that we support. We are so thankful for the opportunity God has given us to lead other's into a deeper walk with Christ, and our prayer is that our zeal to know Him and make Him known will only grown stronger as the years go by.
