Church History

College Hill Baptist Church was founded in June of 1981 by Rev. Sylvester Croom, Sr. Its purpose was to save lost souls while maintaining a place of worship where "Peace, Love, and Happiness Abide". Are you looking for a place to worship? College Hill may be just the place for you. We are a group of caring believers who love the Lord. You are welcome to join us in Christian worship, bible study, prayer and fellowship. With each challenge we have encountered through the years, we became stronger in our faith. We invite you to become a part of our family today and a piece of our history tomorrow.

Church Covenant

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we do now in the presence of God, angels, and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another, as one body in Christ. We engage therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in Christian love; to strive for the advancement of this church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations. We also engage to maintain family, and secret devotion; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements, and exemplary in our deportment; to avoid all tattling, backbiting, and excessive anger; to abstain from the sale and use of intoxicating drinks as a beverage, and to be zealous in our efforts to advance the kingdom of our Savior. We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember each other in prayer; to aid each other in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech; to be slow to take offense, but always ready for reconciliation, and mindful of the rules of our Savior to secure it without delay. We moreover engage that when we remove from this place, we will as soon as possible unite with some other church, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.


The Mission of COLLEGE HILL BAPTIST CHURCH is to grow God's Church through preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and winning souls through God's plan of salvation according to the Holy Scriptures.


Our Vision is to become proficient in the Word of our Lord and Savior so that our lives are exemplary of the scripture. "Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven" (Matthew 5:16).


Our Motto is to "Let Go! Let God!" (Exodus 14:13).
