Our History

It's been said, "It's not important where you've been...or what you've done.  The important thing is where you're going!"  

 

We are on a spiritual journey serving the Lord Jesus Christ, here on Earth.  

  • We hold weekly worship services, Sunday School (September - June);
  • Volunteer in our local food pantry;
  • Have weekly men's and ladies bible studies in homes;
  • Help organize the annual Greenfield Garage Sale Weekend providing bathrooms and free parking for our community.  
  • We support missionary families serving in Belize, Columbia, and Indonesia.
  • We encourage our church body and support them through sickness and health.

As a healthy small congregation of believers, we invite you to join us for true friendship and to find answers to life's hardest questions. 

 

Interesting History--just the same: The Greenfield Center Baptist Church was founded in 1791. One of the chief organizers was General Samuel Bailey who had been on the staff of General George Washington during the American Revolution. The first pastor of the church was Reverend Joseph Craw. During that time, worship meetings were held in houses, schoolhouses and barns.

 

In 1816, the first church building was erected and later replaced in 1892 with the present building at a cost of $2,500 under the leadership of Rev. Rodney D. Andrews. Reverend Andrews served at the church from 1884 until 1925.

 

In 1991, the church celebrated its 200th anniversary with a Homecoming Day. Former pastors, members, and friends gathered together to celebrate God's faithfulness. 

 

However, despite our rich history, we truly believe that the best is yet to come!  God is still working mightily in Greenfield Center, in New York, America, and the World!
