In the late 50’s and early 60’s, development began on the East side of Lake Buchanan.  Silver Creek and Council Creek were the first sub-divisions.  In May of 1963, under the leadership of Pastor Hubert Christian, the First Baptist Church of Burnet voted to sponsor a Mission in the area.  Then on June 26, 1963 a group of 23 people started meeting at different homes and also met at the Silver Creek Sales office for Wednesday night prayer services.  The sales office was located at 100 C.R. 128 across from the Fire Station.

On March 5, 1964, E. A. Jones of Jonestown Improvement Corporation, under the title of Jones-Owen Corporation contributed land for the Mission.  In order to be self supporting, a loan was secured from the home mission board.  During this time Lampasas Road (now RR 2341) was paved in front of the Mission and on out to the Goodrich Ranch. 

Two church building couples, (the Ed & Dell Hartwells) came to begin construction on a place of worship.  Sunday services were held at that time under a large oak tree (just behind the Church bus shed) on the church property, where Zero (James Dickens dog) became mascot.

Theron Stephens of Spicewood, Texas was called as the first pastor on June 24, 1964, (with a salary of $35 a week).  In May of 1966, R. V. Rhoads became our pastor and worked at the Goodrich Ranch to supplement his salary.  Then in 1968 Theron Stephens returned as pastor from January of 1968 through October of 1972.  In 1972 Brother Franklin Swanner came as our Interim pastor.  In February of 1973 we elected him as full time pastor.  About this time several new families were moving into the area which truly helped relieve some of the past financial difficulties and things were looking up for the church.

After almost ten years as a Mission, on March 18, 1973 under the leadership of

Dr. Franklin Swanner, the Silver Creek Baptist Mission was constituted into a church which was known then as Silver Creek Baptist Church.  The active deacons at that time were Mr. Doyle Cain, Mr. Bob Darieck, Mr. James Dickens and Mr. Robert Tindell.
