About us

A camp for the entire family, Falls Creek Baptist Indian Assembly is widely anticipated each year becoming a tradition for many churches and their members. Hosting campers who represent between 25-40 tribes and over 250 churches each year as well as non-Native people, Indian Falls Creek could well be the largest Native Christian encampment in North America.

 

Beginning in 1947 with an attendance of 333, the camp’s largest registration peaked to 3,064 in 1996. Thirty years prior to the establishment of the camp, J. B. Rounds and W. D. Moorer founded the Falls Creek Assembly itself. It was the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention who led the work to begin Indian Falls Creek. Organizing the first year’s program were Mrs. John Davis, Mrs. T. W. Stevens, Mrs. Bertha K. Spooner, Mrs. Homer Grimmett, and Aaron Hancock.

 

The constitution for Indian Falls Creek was drafted by Victor Kaneubbe, Lewis Hancock, and Louise Hendricks. Article II states: "The objective of this assembly in its annual meeting shall be to foster and promote Christian training, inspiration, fellowship, evangelism, and missionary zeal among the Indians in their Baptist church life."

 

It is with this objective that Indian Falls Creek continues under the guidance of 50 officers serving on the Board of Directors.


Today, over 800 children participate in the camp’s VBS, while over 500 attend the daily Children’s Church services which began in 1980. Each year campers are involved in many opportunities for Christian fellowship.
