“New Church Planting” Reverend Dr. Alonzo Patterson and Reverend William Greene became aware of the need for a mission in the Eagle River area in March 1985. A decision was made that Shiloh BaptistMissionary Church sponsor a mission in Eagle River, Alaska. The pastor of the mission would be Reverend William Greene. The first service of the Eagle River Mission was held at Eagle River Elementary School on May 18, 1985. Rev. Patterson delivered the first message, "Put a little salt in the river." On December 4, 1986, Eagle River Missionary Baptist Church was issued a certificate of incorporation thereby becoming a recognized non-profit organization.

In addition to providing spiritual guidance to the Eagle River community, Eagle River Missionary Baptist Church has performed several community service projects. The Chugach/Eagle River Food Pantry provides food for needy families in the area. This program is run by the church through Pastor and Sister Greene. The mission department of Eagle River Baptist Church have volunteered in Senior Centers in the Chugiak and Anchorage area.

The Lord Jesus came to Pastor Greene in January, 1997 with a vision on how he wanted his church to be built. In this vision the Lord showed the dimension of his house and that the church would be completed. He also showed him that he shall fill this house. Eagle River Missionary Baptist Church broke ground for their new church home on Sunday, April 27, 1997. The foundation was laid on 7/27/97. The framing started 8/6/97.
