The first Baptist Church established in Campbell County in 1828, it became the mother church for many Western and Fairburn Baptist Association churches. James Rainwater (1795 - 1871) was the first known pastor, serving for 26 years, and is buried in the church cemetery. Also buried there is William Brewster, a Revolutionary soldier, (1757 - 1847). Land was donated by Robert Jackson and a log cabin was the first house of worship which also served as a school. This was replaced by a frame building in 1851 and the present sanctuary of Stone Mountain granite was complete in 1906 for the sum of $3,000.00.
