The Dreamers! Ah, how great it is to believe in a dream. The greatest realization at the end of the day is to say, “Ah the dream is true.”
So it was that a group of baptized believers in Christ dreamed of a Church in which Saints could worship. With the aid of the congregation of the Wilderness Baptist Church (Plank Rd/Rte3), their dreams were realized. Zion Hill Baptist Church was planted in the year of our Lord, October 1880 in Spotsylvania County, Virginia.
The Reverend R.B. Townes became the first pastor. The first building was built across the road from the present building. Mr. William Cook gave three acres of land for this construction.
The Reverend W.C Young became the pastor of Zion Hill under whom the present church building was constructed. This was a very progressive period of time in the life of the Zion Hill Baptist Church.
Today Zion Hill Baptist Church still stands and set on approximately 30 acres of land. Yes, this Old Ship of Zion has served its people and community well. History cannot tell it all, but this we know, Zion Hill Baptist Church has served well in the past. It is serving the present age, with God as the pilot it looks to the future. To God be the glory for the things he has done through his people throughout the 125 years of existence. Zion Hill Baptist Church located at 10411 Cooktown Road, Spotsylvania County, Spotsylvania VA. May God Bless Zion Hill and keep it for 125 more years.
