The History of Liberty NC
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
As the genesis for the beginnings of the church of the Southern Baptist, the largest Protestant organization in the world. Liberty has had historical and religious influences that can be felt throughout the planet. It all began in 1755 when 16 Baptists worshipers descended upon an area just outside of Liberty. Led by Elder Shubal Stearns of Connecticut, they founded the Sandy Creek Baptist Church.
