FINCASTLE BAPTIST CHURCH: A HISTORY
Fincastle Baptist Church was begun in 1822 as a branch of the Mill Creek Baptist Church.
A few years later, on August 6, 1831, the church was formally organized as an independent congregation under the leadership of Reverend Absalom C. Dempsey. There were
just 18 members in the congregation.
The congregation quickly outgrew their original building on the corner of East Main
and Monroe streets. In 1890, with the deed to the lot on the corner of Church and Main
streets purchased for $500, construction on the new church began. The first service in
the new building was held June 3, 1896. The Sunday School addition was completed in
1923, and in observance of the church's 125th anniversary, the sanctuary was remodeled and redecorated.
Today, the current church facility is located off of U.S. 220. The new church was
completed in October 2005. -SH

"Bob kissed me on the forehead things calmed down and I became
and left the house," she says. "It resigned to the idea."
