Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church
Corinthian Missionary 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. He has organized a church council which includes all leaders of the church ministries. He led participants in the Series Discipleship and has begun Wednesday night Bible Classes.
Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church, under Rev. Lash's leadership has secured land which houses our new church.
Corinthian is blessed to have Rev. Cleo Holt as Assistant Pastor.
Several ministries have been added through the years.
- Media Ministry - Sunday worship and programs are video taped for distribution.
- 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.
