Pioneer Bible Church was planted in Moose Creek, Alaska by Hamilton Acres Baptist Church in Fairbanks, Alaska. In the fall of 1999, Pastor Bruce Hamilton of Hamilton Acres Baptist Church noticed ten families making the drive from Eielson Air Force Base (22 miles each way) for church services. All were faithful, tithing families. Pastor Bruce Hamilton met with each one and based upon their enthusiasm, started a Wednesday night bible study at the Salcha Senior Center in Salcha, Alaska. The average attendance on those Wednesday nights was forty-two. This confirmed what Pastor Bruce and the deacons of HABC had been praying for: a faithful, giving group of people by whom a solid fundamental Baptist work could be planted.
