Excerpt from History of the Member Churches of the Caldwell Baptist Association, Incorporated

In the In the Old Testament, Genesis we read, In the beginning God created Did God's creation end after six days? Did God look down and see the need of a community almost one hundred years ago?

The time was at the beginning of the twentieth century. The place was called Needmore, a rural community, with many scattered homes. Families were large, many with ten, perhaps twelve children. Often three generations lived together as one family. It was a good place to live. The people were farmers, hunters of wild animals, and fishermen. They made their medicine from roots and herbs. Any surplus not needed for food was sold or traded for other needs. They cut trees, sawed their own logs, and built their homes. Mr. Clingman Clark made bricks and built his own home. This house is still standing. Everyone worked hard and no one felt poor.

Neighbors had time to visit and were always ready to help in times of need, although the distance was sometimes miles and the roads were often muddy paths. Travel was on foot, horseback and farm wagons. It was a peaceful life. There was another occupation which had come to the community which was not good. It was the making and selling of whiskey. Men who brought the whiskey were using the money which was needed by their families. They were also disturbing the peace and bringing other evils into the community. More muddy roads and whiskey were not needed in Needmore.

Something was needed in Needmore, though, that was a church. A few people had been walking several miles to church when they could. Some saw a great need for a church in the community and after talking it over with other interested people reached the agreement that a church was needed. They began to make plans to organize a church. Cornelius Clark and his wife, Nancy Craig Clark, agreed to give land in front of their home. He also promised to help build a brush arbor in which services could beheld until a building could be constructed.

The tract of land which they deeded to the church was a part of her dowry (property that a woman brought to her husband at marriage) which was not unusual at that time. All the land which the church now owns at the site where the church now stands was a part of that dowry.
