Worship and Organizations

Spirituality has been an important part of the fabric of North Baldwin County for hundreds of years. A perfect example of this is seen in the historic churches that stand today. These houses of worship remain as reminders of the past.

Montgomery Hill Baptist Church was built in 1854 and is the oldest church in the county. It is on the National Register of Historical Places. Montpelier Methodist Church, built in the early 1900s, also still stands today. These two churches solidified the presence of religion in the area. Today, about 80 houses of worship exist in the North Baldwin area, encompassing various religious groups. Some of the churches in Bay Minette are First Baptist Church, First United Methodist church, First Assembly of God, New Day Ministries, Bay Minette Church of Christ and St. Agatha Catholic Church.
