Our History

Mineral Springs Baptist Church was constituted in the year 1845.  It was a member of the Pee Dee Association from 1845-1856.  It was received into the Rocky River Association in 1872.  In 1876 it was received into the Stanly Association.

The first building to be used by Mineral Springs Baptist Church was a one room log structure which was located one mile east of the present location.  The second building, which was a large wooden building located at the present sight, was destroyed by strong winds.  It was used from 1917-1927.  The third structure was built in 1928.  It was a seven room brick building with wings which were used as Sunday school classes.  The church building was dedicated in 1930.  In 1976 Mineral Springs remodeled and added to the old sanctuary a choir loft, baptistry, and a large educational building which included a new fellowship hall.  The new structure was dedicated in 1977.  

The Church has reported a Sunday School since 1903.

On March 3rd,1991  Mineral Springs dedicated new stained glass windows in the church.  The windows were given by members in honor or memory and to the glory of God.

Construction on the new fellowship hall began in February 1988.  Dedication for the hall was on August 28,1988.  A special note burning ceremony was held on March 3rd, 1991.  

A parsonage was built in 1964.  The home is located across the road from the church.  The first family to live in the parsonage was Reverend Truette Rogers, his wife and their two sons.  They moved in on November 10, 1964.

MINERAL SPRINGS CELEBRATES 150 YEARS

August 27th,1995 was a special day in the history of Mineral Springs Baptist Church.  We celebrated our 150th anniversary.  Most of our church family were dressed for the time period of 1845.  Some old customs, such as passing a hat for the offering and having lemonade made in a tin tub were re-lived by those in attendance.  

A horse and buggy was present and many people had their picture made in the buggy.

Commemorative plates were ordered with a picture of the church and dates on them. Bookmarks were also available.

Many church members brought old family photos to share with the church family.

Pastor Ollis Revels brought the message,  Titled "What Mean These Stones?"

It was a time of  thanksgiving for what God had done in the life of our church and for what He will do in the future.
