Through the years Ebenezer Baptist Church has looked to the Lord for wisdom and help. The verse that has had a central impact on the church is 1 Samuel 7:12. "Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name Ebenezer, saying, 'Thus far the Lord has helped us.'"
Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church was organized in 1874 at Rocky Fork, located on what is now Main Street or Old Distillery Road about one mile from US. Highway 41 in Greenbrier, Tennessee. The church members worshiped at the first location until the group moved to the present site at Ebenezer Road and Church Street in Greenbrier on November 1, 1876. The name was changed from Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church in 1876 when the name was shortened to Ebenezer Baptist Church.
In March 1963, with membership of 237, construction began on the present sanctuary and basement. The first worship service in the new sanctuary was held on September 22, 1963.
Ebenezer, meaning stone of help, has now entered its 145th year of serving God. It is hoped that each time your read the name of this body of Christ, you will pause and remember how much God has helped you each day, just as the stone Samuel set up and called Ebenezer reminded the Israelites of God's help.
Here I raise my Ebenezer
Hither by Thy help I'm come;
And I hope by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
