History & Purpose
University Heights Baptist Church is an independent regular Baptist church that started in 1947 in downtown Evansville as Bible Baptist Church. In 1965 under Pastor Duane Dodson, Bible Baptist and Temple Baptist came together, and University Heights Baptist Church was established at its present location.
Through the years, UHBC’s purpose and desire to preach and to teach the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ has remained the same. The ministries of UHBC strive to reach the surrounding community through numerous services and outreach. Our belief is that a strong biblical education put to practical use will help to make individuals well-grounded and better equipped to contribute to society.
