Trinity Baptist Church was established on January 1, 1989, by Pastor James L. Rawlins and approximately twenty-two members. These members started out meeting in a two-car garage which was a part of the Military Christian Home that served the military on Fort Stewart. The home is located on South Main Street in Hinesville, Georgia, and is there today, though vacant.
In March of that same year, the church voted to purchase two acres of land and a double-wide trailer located on E. G. Miles Parkway in Hinesville for our church to meet in. In 1992, the church decided to build a building, and used the trailer for Sunday School classes.
Pastor Charles Lybarger became our pastor from September 1993 until September 1997. Brother Timothy Parrish candidated for Trinity Baptist Church in September 1997, and was called to be our pastor on February 1, 1998 by unanimous decision.
In 2003 Bro. Russell Smiley donated twenty-five acres of land in Long County to the church and it was decided right away to build a new church on this piece of land. Trinity Baptist Church held its first service in this new building on April 25, 2004, and is growing in this location today.
After sixteen and a half years of guiding TBC, Bro. Parrish has gone on to the mission field in Southeast Asia. In August, 2014 Pastor Matthew Massey became our new pastor. We have seen phenominal growth under the leadership of Pastor Matthew and Amber, and look forward to what God has for us in the future.
