Our Story

How it all started...

Wallburg Baptist Church was organized in 1890 in the small farming community of Wallburg, North Carolina. After a fire
essentially destroyed the building in 1937, it was rebuilt, and now stands at the intersection of Wallburg Road and North Carolina Highway 109. Currently we are in the infancy stages of constructing a new sanctuary to replace the existing building. We are blessed in that approximately 11 acres of property are totally paid for and partially cleared, graded and seeded.
We are looking into the future in our total planning process. The proposed building will include a sanctuary, Sunday School and meeting rooms, a modern nursery, and will be constructed under the appropriate building codes such that we can offer a large day care facility. Additionally, provisions are planned that will enable easy and logical expansion to the buildings should we grow even further. As a part of the building process, in early 2011 we added a large, modern child-approved playground. We are very excited about our building project and invite the community to join us in this undertaking.
We currently offer a variety of services and worship opportunities, including both youth and senior citizen groups, child care for all worship services, an active children's program, as well as strong emphasis on both men's and women's missionary projects. Wallburg Baptist Church is made up of friendly people who are enjoying being part of God's work. We would love for you to come and visit with us. No matter where you are or what season of life you are in, you will be most welcome to fellowship, learn, and worship with us!

Baptism is a wonderful thing...

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.  Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to follow all that I commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”  Matthew 28:18-20
Our top priority as a church is the Great Commission!  Knowing Christ and making Him Known to all people, no matter what their age, background, or social status.  We are thrilled when anyone comes to saving faith in Jesus (Luke 15).  Baptism services are the Church’s way of solidifying the commitment someone makes to Jesus and reminding them that they are now to walk in newness of life (Romans 6:1-11).  Baptism is a joyous celebration as it is intended to mark the beginning of someone’s journey of faith.  We often remind new believers that being baptized is the easiest thing that Jesus asks of us.  And this is only the beginning!  As we teach and train in the faith our joy increases as we see believers growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18, 3 John 4).
