We voluntarily band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ; personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to a lost mankind.
The ordinances of the church are believer’s baptism and the Lord’s supper.
Adamsville Baptist Church has a remarkable history that dates back to 1850 when it was first built. It is the oldest church in Sumter County. John Adams, the first pioneer to settle on Jackson Highway (now Route 468), recognized the need for a church in the community. He donated one acre of land to the Methodist Conference on which to build a church and cemetery. The present church was built immediately and was a gift of S. A. Curry, a wealthy merchant who lived several miles away. The cemetery was begun in 1851 and is the final resting place for its original founder, John Adams.
When Sumter County was formed in January 1853 Adamsville was made the county seat. The courthouse, of log construction, was built near the church. At that time Adamsville consisted of the church, the courthouse, the general store and home of John Adams.
Since then this little white church at Adamsville has flourished as a symbol of the Christian faith of the people mainly because of a long line of Godly men intent on sharing the word of God behind its pulpit. The church became known as Adamsville Baptist Church in 1947 when it was purchased by the Baptists. As for the cemetery, which belongs to the Methodist Church, people of all faiths are buried there.
