History of New Zion Freewill Baptist Church
1890 – 1998
by T. Larry Smith
Presented today will be short brief synopsis of The History of the New Zion Free Will Baptist Church in Henry County, Alabama. No church records are available before circa 1922. Early church information is difficult to obtain and is an on-going process. Anyone with church information prior to 1922, please share it with church historians.
Taken from the Bible-From the Book of Joel, Chapter 3, Verse 17 and 21:
“So shall we know that I am the Lord Your God dwelling in Zion,
My Holy Mountain”…”The Lord Dwelleth in Zion.”
Hence the name of Zion Free will Baptist Church as was chosen by the early pioneers. Zion Church is older than the village of Tumbleton.
The oldest date found thus far regarding Zion Church is from August 1 to December 5, 1891, when nine people were excluded from the Baptist Church of Christ of Balkum, Alabama for joining this Freewill Faith. They became members of this church.
