Early churches in Bad Axe included the First Presbyterian Church, whose members first gathered together in 1878 in a building that consisted of a large room with seats around the wall. It burned in a fire in 1881, and members gathered in a variety of homes until the church was formally organized in 1883, and a 30x40-foot frame structure, was built. By 1889, the congregation needed a much larger building. Completed in 1900, the new church could hold up to five hundred people. That church served the congregation until 1978 when its current building was dedicated. The congregation is currently affiliated with the Presbyterian Church in America denomination.

The Methodist Episcopal Church was organized in 1880, and its first church building was dedicated in 1883. A new church was built in 1899, largely because more space was needed. It is currently known as the Bad Axe First United Methodist Church.

St. Paul's Protestant Episcopal Church was founded in 1881 and received a resident priest the following year, after which a place of worship was constructed. Still operating, the congregation is in the Diocese of Eastern Michigan.

Catholic families were living in the township before the village of Bad Axe was formed, but they lacked a dedicated place of worship. Services began in a private home in Bad Axe in the mid-1800s.
