Our History

A small group of families in the farming community of Kellum began gathering for worship in the little one room school house on Kellum Loop Road.
An itinerant preacher arrived by horseback to lead these services. The local train depot served as their second meeting place when the school board decided it was not appropriate for worship to take place in a school. Eventually the Atlantic Coastline Railway Company asked the parishioners to leave the depot because of insurance concerns.
This small group of believers would not give up on their desire to worship together and organized themselves as Kellum Baptist Church in 1902. Their faithfulness was rewarded when they were given a plot of land on which to build their first church home. That plot of land is still a part of our current campus.

God has greatly blessed Kellum in the many years since that small group gathered in a brush arbor.

Our current sanctuary was dedicated the first Sunday 2018. Those charter members formed Kellum Baptist Church out of their desire to have a place to worship God, to have a place to gather their community for fellowship and to be of service to their God and their community.

Over one hundred and fifteen years later we owe those original members a debt of gratitude as we continue to build on the foundation of faithfulness they laid for us.
