The first preaching took place in 1775 in lower Gloucester County by a man named Iverson Lewis. He established two churches during his time, one in Mathews County (orginally known as Kingston) and the other in lower Gloucester County (known then as Abingdon) and is now called Union Baptist Church.
Union Baptist is a full service church. We offer a ministry especially tailored for every age group. We average 300 – 350 in our Sunday Morning Service and 250 in Sunday School.
We have a rich history in Gloucester County serving our Lord and ministering to the lost.
