(Founded in 1878)

Cedar Falls Baptist Church is located one mile north of Methodist College. The church had its beginnings in 1878 as a result of a brush arbor revival conducted near Carver’s Falls Road. It’s physical structure consists of a chapel (former sanctuary), sanctuary, educational building, two kitchens and fellowship hall on 18 acres of land. The church has been remodeled many times. The last building project was dedicated on April 30, 1995.

One of the first pastors to serve at Cedar Falls was the Rev. J. M. Beasley, owner of a jewelry store in Fayetteville. During the period 1900 to 1912, three ministers, Rev. Wiley Page, Rev. Joe Johnson and Rev. Martin Page served the church as supply pastors.

Sunday School attendance averages well over 200. Music programs consist of handbell choirs, youth, children and adult choirs as well as vocal ensembles. On Thanksgiving many other churches in the community join Cedar Falls in Thanksgiving services.

Many support groups and seminars are offered to members and non-members. These include divorce care, nutrition and weight control through First Place, dealing with grief, bible study, and stress. Cedar Falls’ senior citizens, who named their group "K.I.T." (Keep in Touch) are active in the church, community, and New South River Baptist Association. Youth and adults have taken many mission trips. The church entered into the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Cumberland County in 1995 to assist people in the area who have temporary emergencies. Members keep a food and clothing closet stocked for the needs of others.
