Our Story

How it all started...

On August 1, 1909, 41 futuristic minded Wrightsboro men and women gathered at the George W. Trask home, all sharing a vision of organizing a neighborhood Baptist church. No longer a dream but a reality, Wrightsboro Baptist Church was established that day, 19 of the 41 attending becoming charter members.  Soon, the church officially opened its doors for worship in an old store, while able-bodied members built a new structure on land donated by the Hornes family, the current courtyard.
The Wrightsboro family held its first worship service in the newly completed little white church on January 9, 1910, bringing to fruition a dream that originated in the hearts of its members, Membership increased from 19 to 272 by 1934 and approached 600 by the  early fifties, consequently precipitating a three-phase building program.

Expanding the vision...

Phase one, a three-story building completed in 1952 initially housed a basement sanctuary and presently serves as the education building.  Unfortunately, the little white church threatened future development and was sold and carried by rail to Georgia.   Over the next six years, membership climbed to 826, resulting in the kickoff of Phase Two.  

On June 8, 1958, church members celebrated the completion of Phase 2, a two-story brick building that included a main-floor sanctuary and bible study rooms— the chapel today.  Twenty-five years later, enrollment topped 1000 and the church started its third building phase.

Completed in March 1987, the large brick building housing the current sanctuary concluded the three-phase building program started in 1950.  Forward thinking, however, the church purchased a 19.5-acre tract of land located directly behind the main sanctuary in 1988.  Earmarked for future development, the land remained unimproved until 2009, the year Wrightsboro celebrated its 100th birthday. Simultaneous with the anniversary festivities was the construction of the new family life center.

Where we are headed...

In November of 2021 Wrightsboro Baptist Church called Rev. Eddie Eaton as its Senior Pastor. Pastor Eddie's vision of leading people to become authentic, passionate, followers of Jesus Christ who then demonstrate and declare the Gospel to all people will move Wrightsboro Baptist Church to fulfill its mission of fulfilling the Great Commission and the Great Commandment!
