Glorifying God with the aid of the Holy Spirit
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.
Grateful for our past and the rich heritage of those who came before us, we must continue to move forward toward the future with the aid of the Holy Spirit.
