  1. Relatively few records exist to document what actually occurred during the early years at Lebanon Grove and Guilford. It is understood the church experienced periods of time being both open and closed. For much of its existence Guilford served as a circuit church, sharing a minister with other Baptist churches. It had periods of growth and health and also several periods of decline.

    Records reflect that the church remained open from 1954 to 2013. One thing we know for sure is that it is the church members who keep the faith and work for the Lord. It is God-loving people – past, present, and future – who bind a Church together and make the difference.
