Our Story

How it all started...

Cartledge Creek has a long and rich history that officially begins in 1774, when Col. Thomas Dockery and a group of settlers from Maryland established a Baptist group and built Dockery’s Meeting House. In 1826, a larger building was erected on the present site of the church building and the name was changed to Cartledge Creek Baptist Church.

CCBC hosted the Baptist State Convention of 1833, when Wake Forest Institute (later Wake Forest University) was ratified. A church publication from 1999 states that "nine ministers have been called out from the membership and four churches have been organized from Cartledge Creek."  

As the church membership grows and changes, we hold this in common with all those who were here before us: “…because they love the Lord, they build together.” 

Expanding the vision...

Sharing the good news of Jesus Christ  is a priority for Cartledge Creek.  We do that through church-wide projects like Operation Christmas Child, sending teams on short-term mission trips, partnering with agencies like IMB and Global Scholars, and supporting individual missionaries.  

We also  share this hope we have by caring for our local neighbors and emphasizing the importance of being disciples of Jesus who make more disciples.  

" Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20
