    You're right Gary. From the 1977 church directory, "In the summer of 1948, construction of the present sanctuary was begun with the formal opening on July 16, 1950. In October 1957, the educational bldg. was constructed."

    Is Michael Page still the pastor?

    I don't know about Mr. Page, but I do know the generation that came of age in the 1960's & 70's owes a debt of gratitude to the good people who raised us in that sacred place known then as Holloway St. Baptist. Many have died, but their influence lives on in us. Although I was sad when the congregation voted to leave the community, I am glad the building remains in use. As the old hymn says, "Precious memories, how they linger."

    I was a member of Holloway St. Baptist Church in the late 50's or early 60's, but can't remember the name of the pastor. Can you help?
    Thanks,

Antioch Baptist Church, 10.02.10

The Holloway Street Baptist Church was established in 1941. I'm not sure of the construction date of this building, which appears to be newer. It does appear to have been built prior to 1950.

The church is currently Antioch Baptist Church - County Commissioner Michael Page is Pastor.
