As it is with all great institutions, their beginnings for the most part take place with an idea and under meager circumstances, and this church was no exception. The idea of establishing a church originated with the late Rev. Ed Miller. Evidence points to the year of 1886 when the church was organized. Rev. Miller along with a few members began the struggle of erecting the first structure which was a log cabin. They named this first place of worship the Bold Springs Baptist Church. The name was taken from the spring nearby. Serving with Rev. Miller were the following Deacons: Anthony Ragland, Reuben Rogers, Jackson Rogers, Ellis Fields, Jim Cooke, John Brooks, King Crawley and Phillip Beard.
