Crossroads History

Pastor Mike: When Mike Helton first came to this church, only a small group of believers were meeting together. Mike became their pastor and re-named the church Crossroads Baptist. The building at the time was a temporary double-wide. Membership grew quickly, requiring a larger, more permanent sanctuary. Construction began on a building consisting of a sanctuary, prayer room, nursery, classrooms, and a large kitchen.

April 28, 2002: Dedication ceremony for the new building.

September 21, 2003: Harry Harris, Jon Baker, Calvin Womack, Steve Hicks, and Ernie Cearley were ordained as Deacons and Elders.
