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.
