This church was organized by Rev. James H. Thornwell on authority from Charleston Presbytery; F.J. and W.A. Hay were its first elders. By 1846 Rev. Samuel H. Hay preached on alternate Sundays here and at a new church in Barnwell; this congregation soon merged with the new one as Barnwell Presbyterian Church.
In 1896 Rev. F.L. Leeper and Dr. W.S.Hay, appointed by the Presbytery, reorganized Boiling Springs as a seperate congregation with O.B. Hay and J.M. Gantt as elders and J.C. Fowke as deacon. The present sanctuary was built in 1897 by Hay Gnatt and other members; the Sunday School building was built in 1955.
