This page is the first in a series of pages that provides the history of significant events in the development of Union Baptist Church. The focus is on the buildings as the church grew and hurricanes damaged and in some cases destroyed the buildings.
This information and photos were extracted from the Centennial Book’s history chapter. You can read that chapter here as a pdf file that contains scans of the book’s pages.
“The history of Union Baptist Church is filled with many good, and some bad, experiences. Let us remember that what we are doing today as a church is what will be tomorrow’s history. May God grant us the grace to fill that history with the record of spiritual victories to the honor of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15).” From the green-covered booklet, Centennial Celebration.
This series begins here with the current satellite view below of the north half of the current property. The locations of the buildings are shown as the church grew and storms created “opportunities” to rebuild. Please understand that the locations shown here are approximate and based solely on the descriptions in the Centennial Book.
