About Us 

   We are an autonomous Southern Baptist (SBC) church established in 1886 in the beautiful East Feliciana Parish and located in the village of Norwood, LA.  It was organized with a commitment to walk together in Christian love, to promote the development and spiritual growth of the church, to increase the Christian influence in Norwood and the surrounding communities, to educate our children, to seek the salvation of the lost, to affirm God's love and our love for all sinners while hating all sin, to minster to each other's needs, to remember each other in prayer and to aid each other in sickness and distress.  These still remain our driving commitments.
