Text:

The Baptist Church of Jesus Christ at Crooked Creek
Founded on this site July 23, 1803, this small church appeared to have little chance for survival. Two hundred years later, she remains because of Christ´s faithfulness to His promise. "Upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." -Matthew 16:18b
May future generations of her people remain steadfast to this rock of the Gospel; that Jesus died, was buried, and rose again for the redemption of mankind.
This 20th day of July, 2003.
