Welcome to Hogan's Creek Missionary Baptist Church's Website!
First, let us tell you a little about the history of our Church.
In the very early part of the nineteenth century, when this part of the world was still being settled, Elder Daniel Burford, a minister of Dixon's Creek Church, began preaching near where the Caney Fork River empties into the Cumberland. The Lord blessed this work, people were saved, joined the body, and Hogan's Creek began to grow.
In June 1806, the Church at Dixon's Creek extended an arm and Hogan's Creek continued under the supervision of the mother Church at Dixon's Creek. Elder Burford was chosen as our pastor. In the fall of that year "seats" were constructed in the town of Carthage and the body met regularly there until 1808 when they moved to a new meeting house on the south side of the river, near the mouth of the Caney Fork. We worshiped there as an arm of Dixon's Creek until June 30, 1810 when they were constituted into an independent church. There were 48 members at that time and the church was known by the name of Caney Fork.
The Church continued to worship here with Elder William Flowers as pastor until 1818. They then moved approximately two miles south of Carthage to the banks of Hogan's Creek. A new house of worship was constructed and the name was changed to Hogan's Creek. The first service was held in the new building in December 1819. In 1860, just before the Civil War, the church constructed a new house of worship. Although changed and remodeled several times over the years, this is the building we now worship in.
Three Churches have been sent out from Hogan's Creek: Peyton's Creek in July, 1812; Plunkett's Creek in August, 1837; and, Macedonia in April, 1839.
Over two hundred years after our establishment we are still meeting every Sunday morning. We meet at 10:00 a.m. for Sunday School and at 11:00 a.m. for Church Service. Our Pastor is Bro. Ricky Hackett.
We appreciate your visiting with us here on the World Wide Web but we would be more pleased if you would meet with us in person on Sunday morning.
