The Elm Grove Baptist Church has a rich heritage of worship and service in the Eden Park Community as well as the distant shores of this world. The church is grounded on a strong sense of from whence we've come, a solid background in Christian Education, and a legacy of positive influence in community affairs. The church's beginnings are found in the home of Brother George and Sister Carrie Walks at 645 North 38th Street ( then known as Orange Street ) in about June of 1925. Since its beginnings EGBC has been led by men chosen by God. Those men include: Evangelist I.H. Lusk, Rev. H. O'Dell, Rev. J. Cyrus, Rev. Joe White, Rev. A.L. Pitcher, Rev. J.R. Williams, and Rev. Errol K. Domingue. Each one used his God-given abilities to lead the people of God for his season. However, it was under the pastorate of Rev. Williams, who served from 1952 until 2000, that the EGBC experienced its most significant expansion. Deemed by many as The Walking Encyclopedia, Rev. Williams led the congregation in the institution of membership training institutes, stewardship revivals, city mission schools, interdenominational and inter-racial services, the establishment of a child development center, and missions work in Liberia, West Africa. In addition, he served as God's leader when the Lord decided to move the church to its present site and construct a new sanctuary and education building. Rev. Williams was called from his labor to divine rest in June, 2000. In July, 2000 the church elected Rev. Domingue as the church's seventh pastor. Today EGBC continues to build on the legacy of the men and women who gave of themselves to work in this portion of God's vineyard. This is still a place where prayers can be heard and mercy can be foundOur numbers have grown at least four-fold in the new millennium. We engage in Spirit-filled corporate worship at least three times per week. We gather for at least four different Bible Study sessions at the Church, and our Mission Ministry leads Bible Study at individual homes all around the city. There are approximately 30 official ministries at work and countless other individuals and groups who minister to the needs of God's people as He provides. Needless to say, the Grove is a place of continual praise, prayer, proclamation, and ministry. We look back with pride and admiration and we thank God for the present. But we know that our charge to keep and the way we glorify God is to press towards the future. Even now our Church is busy praying, preparing, and planning for what we call The Next Phase of Faith. We are convinced that the Lord has given us a responsibility a divine mandate to positively impact and transform our community spiritually, morally, and economically. Therefore, in addition to our spiritual mandates, we are determined to be God's instruments in the areas of educational initiatives, health care initiatives, and economic development., Baptist
