Mike Wood, Senior Minister

Traveling south out of Hiram, through Villa Rica, and southward to Carrollton. I am stopping at all the sites on the west side of the hwy. (easiest access). Will try to get the east side on the return trip

This church is huge, as it seems many of the newer churches are down here. Sitting west of GA-61, and with the image of a steeple in the center of the large one-story building. Traditional front, with double doors, and huge parking area.

A brick building with front not being the entrance...double roofed entrance on the north side.

"In September of 1883, a group of men and women met to form a congregation of Christians, dedicated to restoration of simple Bible truths. The first services were held in a brush arbor, located near the present location of the church. A few years later, a frame building was erected in a beautiful grove and was called Black Gum Christian Church, which came from a very large black gum tree which stood just across the road from the church, and which farm animals were hitched to while their owners attended church.

"In the early years of the church, preaching services were only held once a month, as the preacher rotated duties between four congregations. Sunday School was held each week, however.

"In 1921, Etta and Cliff Jordan gave one acre of land to build a new brick church. This land was at the church's present location at 2868 Carrollton-Villa Rica Highway. The building was begun in 1927 and dedicated in 1928. When the congregation moved, the name was changed to Bethany Christian Church. Further donations from the Jordan family provided land for a cemetery. Carl and Thelma Jordan also gave land for the parsonage, and future expansions. In 1998 the present sanctuary was dedicated.

"Since 1883, Bethany Christian Church has continued a legacy of Christians dedicated to "simple Bible truths." We invite anyone looking for a church home to come and be a part of the Bethany family." ~ Bethany Christian Church, History
