Union Baptist Church was organized in 1834 by 18 or 20 members from Canaan Church. The Lipscomb area was then known as East End. Members of the Rockett and Ware families donated the original two acres of this site and a log cabin, which served as the church until a wooden building was built in 1888. The present edifice was erected in 1922. Many of the charter members are buried in the adjacent cemetery.
