Only the façade of this church precariously stands as a testimony of the previous presence of a small community of Baptists in Inarajan.  A Chamorro Protestant family from Hagåtña, from the Flores family (better known as Kabesa), moved to Inarajan around the turn of the century, and began evangelical work in the village, creating quite a stir.  The air was tense for many years, with the Spanish Capuchins marking out Inarajan with special care because of the Protestant efforts there.  The church was eventually closed and, with the passage of time and typhoons, not much of the structure remains.
