About UBC

For over a century, Union Baptist Church has stood as a testimony to the grace of God and the commitment of its people.  The year was 1897 in the month of April that Union Baptist Church had its genesis.  John E. Robinson, Ed Hockaday and John Thomas met for the purpose of organizing a Sunday School for the families living in North Durham.  Through the aid of Dr. Aaron Moore, a member of White Rock Baptist Church, literature was secured to assist the founders in their efforts.  From these humble beginnings, Union Baptist Church developed.  With a functioning Sunday School in place, the founders sought a regular meeting place.  They were able to rent a small log cabin on Corporation Street.  Mr. Sam McCowan, the principal and a teacher at East End Elementary School, was selected as the first superintendent for the Sunday School.

Sunday School services were so inspiring and uplifting that a desire to hear the Word preached developed.  Once again, Robinson, Hockaday and Thomas sought assistance from officers of an established church.  This time they were assisted by Deacons George Mebane and Elijah Carrington of Mount Vernon Baptist Church in organizing the first deacon board.  The first board consisted of Joe Wilson, Clem Thaxton, Joe Suitt, John Grissom, Charlie Lyons and Rufus Tapp.  Reverend Paul Yancey, pastor of Mount Vernon Baptist Church, became the first pastor of North Durham Baptist Church, budgeting his time between the two churches.  Services were held one Sunday per month at the newly organized church.
