Abridged from the First Baptist Church Pine Mountain website: The Baptist Church was built and dedicated on May 28, 1887. The Chipley* Baptist Church served the town well until the fateful night of April 24, 1908, when the entire town of Chipley was struck by a devastating tornado. The entire town including the Baptist Church was leveled.  Although, the tornado was a major devastation, God’s people responded with resolve to rebuild. On April 24, 1910 the new brick Baptist Church was dedicated.

*- Chipley was the first name for Pine Mountain.
