Church History:

Bethany Baptist Church was set off, as an arm, from Bethel Baptist Church. The church was constituted on Saturday October 29 1892, at the new church building. Rev J P Gwaltney was called as the first pastor, on December 3 1892.

Constructed of unpainted wood plants, the one room church had a tin roof, one door and a couple of windows. The inside walls were unfinished with bare rafters. The building was heated by a wood stove with the pipe extended out a window.

The original church site was located below the Old Bethany Cemetery.
