The 69-Year History of
Hope Bible Chapel
In January of 1948, a small group of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ began meeting together to remember the Lord on Sunday mornings at the down-town YMCA in Birmingham. Later, they moved to another location near Birmingham Southern College, and then on February 25, 1962, moved to 3926 Montclair Road, and changed their name to Mountain Brook Bible Chapel. There they met together for almost 40 years.
On December 9, 2001, we moved to our present location at 863 Ivawood Road, and changed our name to Hope Bible Chapel. On October 27, 2010, the saints of Westside Believers Chapel in Birmingham began meeting with us, and what a blessing they have been to our Meeting for almost four years now.
Here at Hope Bible Chapel, we gather together each week in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, to remember Him in His death till He comes, as He asked us to do, for His Word says, The Lord Jesus the same night in which He was betrayed took bread: and when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me. After the same manner also... He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; for this is My blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins...this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till He come. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, Matthew 26:27-28
And upon the first day of the week, ...the disciples came together to break bread... Acts 20:7
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! Psalm 133:1
