Baldwin Branch Church had its beginning in the late 1800‘s. Some of the history of the church was passed down orally from generation to generation while other parts of the history were gathered from many documented resources. In the late 1800‘s, Baldwin Branch Church worshipped across the street from its present location which was the Baldwin Branch School. The school building was donated by Ken McMillan. The building operated as a school as well. They were the church’s committed minded women and men who prayed and stayed together.
