Church Grove Ridge Baptist DISCOVER GOD


 Pleasant Point Baptist Church in Lincoln County and their pastor, Bro. M.A. Middleton, began  Meeting with the people from this community in 1893 at the Grove Ridge School. On August  9, 1896, the church was established as a full-fledge congregation. Bro. Middleton served as  the first pastor,shepherding the church for five years. We have ordained several minister and  deacons over the years.

 We’ve continued to spread the gospel and serve our community from our perch on the hill for  the past 116 years.

Building History

 In 1900 Edward Ritchie deeded the church land on what was known as Burdick Hill. The  members decided to build a 32’ X 48’ church building, which would cost $600.00.

 In 1901 the building was completed and dedicated.


 In 1959, the building was remolded. However, before we moved back into the structure, it  burned to the ground. The rebuilt church was dedicated 1960.

 The basement and Sunday school rooms were added in 1974, along with new heating and  cooling systems.

“It seemed good unto us, being assembled with one accord...” Acts 15:25(a) KJV

Beauty is Skin Deep

Proverbs 31:30 (KJV) “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.”

Thoughts To  Ponder

If a church wants a better pastor, it only needs to pray for the one it has.

Stop, Drop, and Roll won't work in Hell.

Forbidden fruits create many jams.

God knows Our Needs

God knows what we need and wants to bless us. But at times he needs to get our attention

Prayer with your family

Have you ever asked your child, “What do you want to pray about”?


WARNING: The following may make you uncomfortable…may even make you mad!

We live in a Material World

America is a materialistic society. The American Way is to get more money, more stuff, more status, more, more, more….
