Distinctively Baptist, Instinctively Compassionate

Baptist History

Sandy Creek Baptist Church

Although records are sparse concerning the church’s beginnings in 1755, one certainty is that Shubal Stearns left his pastorate in Okehon, Virginia, because he carried a spiritual burden for the unchurched yet religiously enthusiastic backcountry farmers in Piedmont North Carolina.   Image courtesy of the North Carolina Office of Archives and History, Raleigh, NC.
