Started as the Holly Springs Baptist Church of Christ, this fellowship is one of the oldest in Wood County. The first meeting was held on November 18, 1853, at the residence of J. D. J. Davis, who served as pastor. Charter members were Samuel Davis, Peter Magnus Gunstream, and Mary Alitia Gunstream. Early worship services were held in a log building and later in a chapel at Liberty Hill, now Pine Mills (1.5 mi. E). A new sanctuary was built here by 1860 and the church name was changed in 1865. The membership has included many early county leaders. (1981)
