The purpose of this church is to advance the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. It shall attain this end through the public worship of God, the preaching of the Gospel, consistent Christian living by its members, personal evangelism, missionary endeavor and Christian education. We welcome you to “Come Grow in Christ With Us”!  Worship Services at 8:00 and 10:30 am through June 10. On Sunday, June 17 we will begin our summer schedule of one service only, meeting at 9:00.

Welcome to South Woodstock Baptist Church

Formed in 1792 as the South Woodstock Church, with the current meetinghouse erected in 1840, historical texts indicate the church thrived as a “very live, active organization” -- a legacy our present congregation continues to build upon. We encourage you to visit our service, classes and other programs offered and trust you will discover the church body to be strong in faith and relaxed in spirit.


Pastor Bob

Since 2006, Bob Beckwith’s been pastoring the congregation, applying a strong background in ministry and music to the benefit of the community.

What We Believe

We invite you to read through our  Church Covenant for a better understanding of the principles and practices of our faith.

When We Meet

We incorporate contemporary praise songs led by our praise and worship team, along with traditional hymns accompanied by our organist. The center of our service will always be the preaching of God’s holy, inerrant and inspired Word.
