In 1875 Bible study in home of John Owens was the beginning of the church with 15 charter members. Richard Cribb was the first pastor in 1877 when the church joined the Waccamaw Association. The first building was approximately 20 x 35 feet constructed of fitted logs and was located one mile south on land of Riley Baxley. In 1890 the log building was dismantled and reassembled here on this one acre site given by A. A. Williams. In 1912 a sanctuary approximately 23 x 50 feet replaced the log building. A pool was dug on the east side near the church for same-day baptizing. In 1940 Sunday School classes were moved inside with the building of 8 classrooms and a porch on to the sanctuary. On Sunday morning, February 3, 1952, at 10 A.M., the church building was destroyed by fire. In 1952 the membership was 385. Available records indicates 21 pastors served this church from 1877-1952.
