New Home Baptist Church 2013
New Home Baptist Church in 2013. The church is bricked with indoor facilities, Sunday school rooms in back, outdoor covered marble tables for dinner, a baptizing pool on the left side of church, and a paved parking lot. The church still believes and worships as our ancestors, preaching from the King James Version of the Bible, and singing the old southern gospel songs along with some new ones. The love and traditions are the same today as they were for our ancestors.
