The history of Corinth Baptist Church goes back to 1856 when its first building

was built and dedicated as a branch of Antioch Church


Corinth Baptist Church officially organized and adopted a covenant on September 20, 1868

The total membership in 1868 was 55. Since its beginning, Corinth has experienced

growth and expansion. Both First Baptist Church of Holly Hill and Eutawville Baptist Church have their roots sprouted from Corinth Baptist Church.




In addition to our Wednesday night meetings, the youth group had a successful Bake Sale in December. This is a great group of thoughtful and faithful young people. Please continue to keep them in your prayers.


Corinth Baptist Church family has a history of doing various outreach ministries

These include, but are not limited to, ministering to the shut-ins, working with the ladies at Hebron Grace, working with the boys home in Orangeburg, sending letters to Friends of Troops, collecting items and food for the less fortunate, and filling shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child every year This year we filled 110 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child!

Hebron Grace Home
The Hebron Grace Home mission project continues! The call came from HGH that they needed kitchen supplies and food reserves. So, for the whole month of June, our folks and others brought what they could to help out this ministry to women who want have victory over addictions in their lives. On July 14, we loaded one pickup truck, one van, and one SUV with all the items that were donated and delivered them to HGH. They were so appreciative and overwhelmed by our support from us as well as others in the community. The team leaders there kept thanking us and also emphasized that without local community support, they could not continue their mission to these women. We also received a tour of their facilities, were served lunch, heard a testimony of one of the women who had been through the program and was now living free, and even were given some peaches to take home! Thank you all for your support for this ministry in our community that is reaching women from many places!

We are supporting missions in the United States and in Tanzania, come to Sunday Worship and listen to the weekly Mission Moment update!



Our current sanctuary was dedicated on December 9, 1918 and has been in use since that date.
We would like to thank all who had a part in making this a special celebration.

Corinth Church, as a branch of the Antioch Church, was built during the year 1856 in December of the year. She remained a branch of the Antioch Church for twelve years, during which time she was served by four pastors: the Reverends Thomas Mellichamp Mahoney, Thomas Dawson, James Hunter, and W.B. Elkin
On the 20th of September, 1868, an organizational meeting was held, under the leadership of Brother Elkin and the “Corinth Baptist Church of Christ” Church Covenant was adopted.
1868 Membership was composed of eleven Caucasian men and twenty two Caucasian women along with eight African American men and fourteen African American women.
By 1918 the church had 140 members.
Mother Church

Corinth Church has been blessed with the joy and privilege of being mother of two younger churches. In 1895, a group of her members, led by Brother M. H. Shingler, saw the need for a church in Eutawville, so on September 15, 1895, letters were granted to six men and six women for the purpose of organizing the Eutawville Baptist Church.
In 1910, a group of three men and five women, led by Deacon A.F. Joyner, withdrew from Corinth to organize the Holly Hill Baptist Church. Their letters were granted on May 15, 1910.
There are no records in the Church Book of the construction or cost of the first two church buildings, but members of the church distinctly recalled that there were two buildings before the present one. The first was a simple, one room structure with the baptismal font outside. The second building had an indoor baptistry and several Sunday School rooms.
The vision of the new church grew. When they built the new House of God, it was, and continues to be a place of beauty dignity and inspiration.
One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. Psalm 27: 4
