One Big Family In Christ

Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church

Corinthian Baptist Church was founded and organized on June 24, 1881 at Main and Eleventh Street. Our first pastor was Rev. Milton T. Lane. Later in the year the church was moved to Eleventh and Newby Avenue.

According to Church History the church has had 16 pastors called to preach the Word. On Sunday, November 17, 2000, Rev. W. Ron Lash was installed as pastor of Corinthian Church. Rev. Lash has continued the efforts toward a new church building. He has organized a church council which includes all leaders of the church ministries. He led participants in the Series Discipleship and has begun Tuesday night Bible Classes.

Corinthian Baptist Church, under Rev. Lash's leadership has secured land which will house our new church. The inside of our present church was painted and new curtains were made thanks in part to Sis. Carolyn Lash. The young women of the church updated our ladies bathroom.

Corinthian is blessed to have Rev. Cleo Holt as Associate Pastor and Minister Anthony Lash as Associate Minister.

Several ministries have been added through the years.

  • Media Ministry - Sunday worship and programs are video taped for distribution.
  • Dance Team Ministry "Excellence" Young people dance to praise the Lord.
  • Sisters in Christ Ministry - Women come together twice a month for Bible Teaching and Fellowship.
  • Married Couples Ministry - A new ministry has been organized to encourage and strength married couples in the Word of God through Bible Study and Fellowship.
