A RICH HISTORY IN SERVING CHRIST
Wellsville Baptist Church is rooted in rich history, which is made evident in the multi-generational ties of our church family and traditional values. Our church traces its history to 1862, when a group of nine adults held its first meeting 5 miles east of town.
With the Civil War in full swing, this group of Unionists prayed and voted to launch Rock Creek Baptist Church. In 1876, the church was moved to Wellsville, and was renamed Wellsville Baptist Church. Since the day our doors first opened, our church has been a pillar within the community. The current building was dedicated in 1924, complete with architectural detail and beautiful stained glass windows. The Family Center, was dedicated in 2000 and is now where our contemporary service is held.
I have attended Wellsville Baptist Church since I was born on a Tuesday and mom took me on Sunday, 64 years ago. Wellsville Baptist is where I accepted Christ, was baptized, married, and where I raised our 2 children, and witnessed many friends and family do the same.
This is a praying church, that’s the reason I’m still here. At one point I had left the church, but the people loved me enough to pray me back through the doors and it is where I still am today.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together…but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.Heb. 10:24-25
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.1 Pet. 4:10
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith. Eph 4:11-13
