History of Charity Baptist Church
In the summer of 1980 six families met in the home of Bill & Davella Todd to discuss the feasibility of starting a new church that would be governed by The Word of God and not by tradition or denominational rules. The decision was made to start the church, and a diligent search was made of the Zephyrhills area for a suitable building to rent but none was available. It was therefore decided to hold meetings in the Todd home. Three meetings a week were held from 1980 to 1984. All tithes and offering were retained for land and building purchase. On March 8th ,1984, two acres of land was purchased at present location and construction was started and completed on the Sanctuary building that year and Bill Todd was called as bi-vocational Pastor. In 1987 construction was started and completed on the Fellowship Building and Bill Todd was called as full time Pastor. In 1999 we started construction on the Sunday School building and completed in 2000.
In June 2011 Bill Todd retired form the pastorate and Rev. Jim May was called as Pastor later that year
Renovation of the Sanctrary and Fellowship Hall to the present configuration was started in 2013 and completed in 2014.
