Who we are...

Springhead Baptist Church was constituted on October 14, 1939, and admitted to the membership of the Colquitt County Baptist Association at the Annual meeting of the Association at the New Bethel Church. The church was an arm of China Grove Baptist Church.

Springhead began with just 33 members with just one mission guiding its purpose. Just as Jesus came to seek and save the lost (Luke 19:10), so will Springhead seek to share the love of Christ with our community and world so that they may come to know Him.

Over the course of our storied history, the congregation has grown from 33 to now more than 400 in membership. We began meeting in a small wooden building and we now meet in a large facility. We are part of the Valdosta Baptist Association comprised of over 60 cooperating churches. 

While times and faces have certainly changed throughout the history of our congregation, God's story marks our past, present, and future. Still today, we are striving to fulfill Jesus' Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) with a three-tiered purpose: Loving...Growing...Serving. 

We are becoming fully mature disciples of Jesus Christ by:


  • Jesus Christ as Lord
  • God as Father
  • Holy Spirit as Guide
  • Church as Family
  • Our neighbors as ourselves
  • The lost


  • In Knowledge
  • In Faith
  • In Love


  • As Witnesses
  • In Jesus' name
  • Locally
  • Globally
