Kings Creek Baptist Church
First founded June 29, 1805. The present building was built in 1849. The church is the oldest Baptist church in the Western Baptist Association of Ohio and the oldest house of worship in the county. The cemetery is one of the oldest in Champaign County, it opend in December 1819 and veterans of every American conflict from the American Revolution to the Vietman War are interred here. Four generations of the CLINE AND ROMINE families are buried here. Church records show a John KLINE joined the church in 1898. This may well have been my grandpa CLINE. My Grandma "Annie CLINE was baptized by Pastor W. T. Bailey, on October, 28, 1906." The church played a role in my ancestors from baptisms to funerals. When my dad passed away we ask memorials go to this church. The money was used for floral arrangements at the dedication of the Historical marker in 2005.
