About Sharon Baptist Church

Sharon Baptist Church

Sharon has been a lighthouse in Winfield Community since 1799, when it was founded by Abraham Marshall and called Poplar Springs Baptist Church. In 1812, she became known as Sharon Baptist Church. This building, the second on the site, was erected in 1869. Many names, prominent in Georgia, are found in the Sharon Cemetery.

Sharon has ordained six men into the ministry. This includes Mount Carmel's first pastor and our present pastor, Andy Collins.

Members of Sharon have been heavily involved with missions. Our members have been to Mexico, India, Peru, Romania, South Africa, Alaska, Tennessee, New York, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and West Virginia. We have supported Lottie Moon Christmas offering with over $10,000 the last three years.

In December 2002, Sharon began presenting "A Hayride Through the Life of Christ" to the CSRA Community. The play was first performed in a hayfield off of HWY 221; then the following year, it was moved to the Columbia County Fairgrounds, where now over 2,000 people enjoy the presentation each year.

Sharon Baptist Church will continue to be a beacon in the community for another 200 years, through hayrides, Easter egg hunts, fall festivals, AWANA, etc. Our members are on a mission to share Christ with everyone!

Our Convenant Since 1895

Thanking God for the light we have received and for the revelation of Jesus Christ which we now enjoy, and hoping that God for Christ's sake has pardoned our sins; and having been baptized on a profession of our faith in Christ Jesus into the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost, we do this day before God and the world, with deep joy and great solemnity enter into a covenant with one another as one body in Jesus.

We therefore covenant and agree, that by the aid of the Holy Spirit, we will walk together in love and christian fellowship. We promise to labor for the advancement and final triumph of the Church, to sustain her worship by attending the House of God, and supporting the ministry: to guard the ordinances, enforce the discipline, and defend her doctrines.

We also pledge ourselves to walk circumspectly in the world, to be honest, faithful, and just in our business relations, and as God may give us help, we promise to live righteous and holy lives.

We further promise to watch over each other in brotherly love, to visit the sick, and to pray for each other and the world, to aid the poor and needy, and to perform such other kind offices as may be pleasing in the sight of God.
