Baconton Missionary Baptist Church
Like most Negro churches of the late 1800’s, Baconton answered the need of former slaves to “pick and choose their praying ground.” In 1869, God moved upon the hearts of the Reverend W.M. Quarterman, Deacons Julius Rogers, Joe Howell, P.M McIver, Flanders Pray and Will Bacon, along with 35 members and they planted this church. The Church continues to stand at the crossroads of Dunlevie and Talmadge Roads today reminding travelers that Jesus is the Way.
Baconton is located in Liberty County approximately 7 miles from Fort Stewart, Georgia. Rev. Hermon Scott serves the congregation as its eighteenth pastor.
The Baconton Church family has weathered many storms over the years and today we stand boldly and sing “Oh Victory in Jesus, My Savior forever…” We have experienced rapid growth over the past few years both physically and spiritually. We have seen God answer prayer after prayer.
There is no doubt in our minds that we can build a Holy Ghost-Led community of loving relationships where we daily love, follow and model Jesus.
We invite you to join us as we pray “Lord, breathe fresh on us.”
