Our Story:

In 1854, a church was chartered as Rehoboth Baptist Church on Saturday, August 5, 1854, at the J. B. Johns Schoolhouse.

Within its first month, Rehoboth had grown to 36 members, and the J. B. Johns Schoolhouse had become too small for the congregation. By Christmas of 1854, the first church building was built and dedicated at a cost of $119.

Since its inception, Rehoboth has always had a ministry center at its current location on Lawrenceville Hwy and has grown significantly over the years, building four sanctuaries to accommodate the growth. Through its pastors and members it has also extended its ministries around the world.
