Sabbath Home Baptist Church
95 Years of History & Service
Sabbath Home Baptist Church, located near Holden Beach, NC, had its beginning in 1914. Two cousins, both by the name of Johnny Fulford, and a small group of men and women began meeting in an old house known as the "Bill House." Mr. Samuel Fulford, Sr. owned that house. They began to have Prayer Meetings with eight members. Johnny L. Fulford and his wife Rebecca Jean, Newman Fulford and wife Edna, Julia Caison, Ella Gray, I. Dave Fulford, and Hannah Fulford attended the first Sunday School class.
Sometime later the men of the class decided they needed a larger place to worship. They began cutting timbers for a new building in the Fulford/Caison community. Some of the folks who helped to hue the logs out for sills were Herman Gray, J. T. Caison, Troy Caison, H. D. Fulford, Sam Fulford, Willard Grissett, Bud Lancaster, I. Dave Fulford, and others. These and many other local surnames began to emerge in the establishment of Sabbath Home.
During the construction of the church, a passerby stopped to ask what was being built. Samuel Fulford, Senior, replied, "It was a Sabbath Home." The name stuck and it remains Sabbath Home Baptist Church today.
Ninety-five years of history come to life in this account. Hundreds of photographs of the past and present members are included and over 250 members who are buried in the church cemetery are identified with birth and death dates.
These dedicated men and women came together to show their spirituality, devotion and commitment to the Word of Jesus Christ. The history of Sabbath Home recognizes, documents, and preserves the memory of those individuals as it provides a glimpse into the lives of over 1,000 individuals beginning with the original group who formed the church to the present congregation. This book preserves their hard work and creates a testament to their service.
(The last verse in the Bible)
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
