OUR HISTORY
 
     Blitchton Baptist Church began on February 5, 1960 as a mission of Olive Branch Baptist Church, with 39 charter members. The original meeting place was a former beer parlor! It was recognized as First Baptist Church of Blitchton by the Southern Baptist Convention on October 14, 1963. Construction of the church building on its present site began in 1964.
     Through the years since, several additions and improvements have been made to the building. A lot has been accomplished with the blessing of our Heavenly Father, and it was all done to praise and glorify His name.
