EBC is a compassionate church meeting the needs of hurting people around us and ultimately giving hope to a hopeless world. This is our message... Jesus came to give eternal life to any who would repent and receive Him by faith.
Edgewood Baptist was organized on April 7, 1968. Rev. John Schrimshire, pastor of Piney Grove Baptist, was moderator at the 2:30pm meeting. Rev. A. C. Durham, pastor of Pleasant Grove Baptist, gave the message and charge to the church that afternoon. There were 18 signatures on the resolution to found the church. Rev. Billy Blackstock was nominated by Ralph Douglas Porter and seconded by Tommy Yates to be the first pastor.
On July 3, 1968 the first missionary, Noel Edwards (Mexico), and was given $15.00 a month
At a special called meeting on July 24, 1968 a vote was taken to purchase a lot to build the building for $3000.00. The following year the church borrowed $7000.00 to build the church.

Edgewood began supporting missions and missionaries from the very beginning. Missions is the heartbeat of God and we should be engaged in reaching the unsaved and unchurched in our local area and around the world.
We support 25 mission projects and missionaries around the world through various mission agencies. Listed below are some of the mission projects and mission agencies that we used to support individual missionaries and mission projects.
