Historical Sketch of the Cullman Baptist Association

Early picture of Good Hope Baptist Church 

The Cullman Baptist Association was organized November 16, 1883, at Good Hope Baptist Church. It began with about 300 members.

The charter churches were: Beech Grove, Bell Springs, Cullman First, Hopewell, Corinth, Duck River, Enon, Flint Creek, First German (now Seventh Street), Good Hope and Pine Grove.

On November 18, 1946, a special session of the Cullman Association was called. The meeting was to discuss that the Cullman Baptist Association become two associations. After much discussion, Rev. J.S. Shults moved that “this association be divided East and West.” Rev. J.E. Marion amended the motion to let “the highway be the dividing line.” By standing vote it was decided to divide the associations.

A roll call of the churches showed about 71 churches present. Rev. M.H. Love made the motion to adjourn and Rev. W.T. Casey prayed the closing prayer.
