The Innsbruck Baptist Church originally grew out of a Bible study group of students belonging to the ÖSM (Austrian Student Mission).  In 1977 the church was founded by ten young Christians with the assistance of the Baptistengemeinde Salzburg, (Salzburg Baptist Church). Due to increases in worshippers over the years it has been necessary for the Baptist Church to change venues; from a storefront located in the Innstrasse 101 to the Bierstindl, then to Gasthof Koreth to the present conference center, “Novum”, in New Arzl, which has been home to the Baptist Church since 2002.

Peter Torskyi served as pastor from 1978-1989.  Andrew Page took over as pastor from 1992-2001 and Daniel Kistenich has been pastor since 2007.
