Glorifying God Together
In 1866 the Flint Ridge Baptist Church was organized. It was during the era of slavery that a few of God’s servants got together with Rev. Berry Austin to organize a church. Services were first held under an old Bush Arbor.
The old Bush Arbor was a place of worship where members would come together to pray, clap, shout, and sing songs of freedom and praise. Later a log cabin was erected but due to rapid growth, members returned to the old Bush Arbor until a building with a stronger foundation was built.
On February 1, 2012, Reverend Eric M. Gurley was called to serve as Interim Pastor of Flint Ridge Baptist Church. On July 28, 2012 Reverend Gurley accepted the call to serve as the Pastor of Flint Ridge Baptist Church and was officially installed as pastor on August 12, 2012.
Grateful for our past and the rich heritage of those who came before us, we must continue to move forward toward the future under the leadership and guidance of Pastor Gurley - Glorifying God Together with the aid of the Holy Spirit.
