In 1920, in a small village in Croatia, a home church of 20 people was born. By 1923 the church had outgrown that house and work was started on the building of the Baptist church of Mackovec. Completed in 1926 the building housed a growing and vibrant church.

After the ravages of the second world war the church was a haven for believers during the long years of communism as a part of Yugoslavia. Many in the church continued to be faithful witnesses even though speaking the gospel outside of the “four walls” was forbidden by the government.

Our ministry came to Croatia and into contact with this church in 1986, and since then we have had the joy of sharing in this dynamic ministry which has started several churches and done hundreds of evangelistic events across former Yugoslavia and beyond.
