Bessie Road Independent Baptist Church History
Rev. Jimmy and Mary Wells were attending Faith Baptist Church in Piedmont in the 70’s. Brother Jimmy had been preaching about 4-5 years when one day he was taking their trash to the landfill and he passed where Bessie Road is located. He went home so excited and told Mary that the Lord spoke to him and said “Son, this is where I want you to build a church and win souls for me”. He asked God to tell him what to do.
