Elim Baptist Church was constituted in the summer of 1870, in front of and to the left of the residence of C.F. Foy, in a grove of young oaks, about two miles north of Egypt. A man of great influence and social; leader in the community brought about a split in the church at Oliver (Little Ogeechee Baptist) over the use of an organ in their song services. Dr. A. B. Lanier organized Elim Baptist Church because of this issue. He and others who favored the use of an instrument left the Little Ogeechee Baptist Church and founded Elim Egypt Baptist Church. The first deacons to serve the church were James H Ash, James D. Lee, Dr. A. B. Lanier, W. C. Hamilton, and H P. Brewer. The Rev. W. L. Murrow assisted in the drawing up of the first constitution and he also was called to serve as the first pastor. The first church building was erected in 1871. After the rift over the organ was healed, Elim Baptist and Little Ogeechee joined together in a union Sunday School from 1874-1876. In 1902 Elim changed its name to Elam Egypt and moved to the Egypt community. [more]
