WHO WE ARE
Kennebec Baptist Church is an autonomous, self-supporting member of the Little River Baptist Association, North Carolina Baptist State Convention, and Southern Baptist Convention. Our doctrinal statement is best described as this…we believe in the Bible, the Whole Bible, and nothing but the Bible. We affirm the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message of the Southern Baptist Convention.
TO KNOW CHRIST AND TO
MAKE HIM KNOWN TO ALL.
WE EXIST TO GLORIFY GOD
AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL PEOPLES AND NATIONS.
The name Kennebec comes from the Kennebec River in Maine. Originally, sawmill owner Kemp Johnson and other residents bought ice from this river during the summer, and it shipped it to the area. During this time, a revival in a brush arbor in the sawmill village of Kennebec in southern Wake County started everything. During this revival, the church met in the brush arbor and used a large stone as an altar. On October 24, 1915, Kennebec Baptist Church was officially formed.
From our humble beginnings, God is still doing great things at KBC. Our future looks bright with the development of many new neighborhoods and business growth. KBC continues to be an active part of the community, and we continue to reach our community, nation, and the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
