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!
