    History

    Members have been in Bahamas since 1979. Two families who were members of the Church, Larry and Marge McCombs and Albert and Karen Ballard, moved to Nassau in the summer of 1979. Missionaries arrived in December of that year but were refused visas and were asked to leave.

    Missionaries were allowed to return in March 1985. Alexandre Paul, consul general from Haiti to the Bahamas, and his wife were baptized 6 January 1980. Some 48 friends and members of the Church attended a conference of the first branch (a small congregation) in 1981. A number of members in the Bahamas have since served full time missions to other parts of the world.

    A new meetinghouse was dedicated in 1988, and within a few weeks the branches began to outgrow the building.
