In 1903, a fire swept through the city of Ellaville which resulted in new brick buildings replacing the old burned businesses. The membership of Ellaville Baptist desired a new building as well, but because of problems finding a site, the idea was dropped in 1906. But sentiment did not die, and several years later in 1911, EBC agreed to build a new church on the old site. However, the day before the construction was to begin, it was discovered that the land where our present church stands today was available for purchase. Thus, they were able to begin construction on the new site. The handsome brick sanctuary was completed and first services were held on Saturday and Sunday, March 16-17, 1912.
Ellaville Baptist Church has a rich history. Being on mission from the beginning, the church has had a vision to disciple her members for ministry here and around the world. Because of continual growth, it has been necessary to build, renovate, and enlarge the church facilities. God has graciously blessed this church financially over the years, as EBC has paid off bank notes long before they were due.
Today we desire to carry on the mission of the church by leading people to be astonished by Jesus in Ellaville and beyond.
