Evans Hill Missionary Baptist Church was organized shortly after the Civil War with only a few dedicated members. According to information gathered here and there, the members met in the school building. These few members exercised the kind of spiritual attitude as set forth by the apostle Peter in his letter to the church,"Grow in Grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." Through the years, these heroes blazed the way until they reached the end of their earthly journey. The torch was then passed to a new group of leaders as the heroes were home to live with God.
Today, Evans Hill Missionary Baptist Church is led by Reverend John P. West. From the words of the pastor, day by day we are establishing a legacy for those who follow in our footsteps. We must always be cognizant of this divine process of God, as He orders our steps and brings us to his glory. In view of that, let us be mindful of the words of the Apostle Paul when he addressed all saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi. "Brethern, I count not myself to have apprehended: But this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13-14)
To cultivate a body of Christ-like believers capable of and committed to modeling Spirit-filled character through Godly-inspired teaching, preaching, and innovative ministry to transform our world for the cause of Christ.
