Inscription. Established as a mission of the Euhaw Baptist Church in 1795, Henry Holcombe, pastor.

With Joseph B. Cook as pastor, the church was chartered as a Baptist church by the State of South Carolina on January 27,1804. At the beginning of the Civil War the building was taken over by the Union Army and used as a hospital for "coloured soldiers".

The present building was erected in 1844 under the leadership of Richard Fuller, pastor. The tabby foundations of a prior meeting house remains in the church yard.

Among the notable converts were William B. Johnson and Richard Fuller, first and third presidents of the Southern Baptist Convention.
