Lake Martin Baptist Church began serving the people of this community in September 1990, when eleven Christians with a vision for Christ met in the home of retired missionaries Dr. Howard and Marge Olive.
By January 1991, worship services were conducted in a double-wide trailer provided by the Baptist State Board of Missions. The church was officially constituted on April 7, 1991, with twenty-three members and Dr. Howard Olive as pastor.
Through assistance from the North American Mission Board and volunteers from Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, construction of the original church building began in June of 1992. It was completed and dedicated in July 1992. Dr. Olive served Lake Martin Baptist Church as its first pastor until December 1994. In 1999, Lake Martin Baptist Church voted to build a new sanctuary and educational space. Groundbreaking was held in February 1999 and dedication of the new sanctuary was set for November 2000.
Over the years, God has blessed our church with tremendous growth and many baptisms. It is our prayer that God will continue to reach out through the members of Lake Martin Baptist Church in love for the people in our community.
