Zion Hill Baptist Church has a notable history dating from 1873. The church's first building was made of logs and was built on the present-day Lewis Byrd farm. The first pastor was N.H. Haggard. The first Sunday School was organized in 1898 with an enrollment of 60. Sometime around the turn of the 20th century, a second church building, a one room structure, was constructed.

Church membership continued to grow at such a rapid pace, this building was outgrown in ten years, and a new building was constructed on the present church site. One example of this rapid growth occurred in 1909 during the pastorate of Rev. W.E. Conner when forty-four joined the church by baptism, and membership grew to 227.

In early 1943, the wooden church building burned. Church services were held in the Zion Hill Schoolhouse while a new building was constructed. By the fall of 1943, church services were held in the newly-completed basement, while the sanctuary was completed. The new brick building that now houses Zion Hill Baptist Church was dedicated in 1944 when Rev. J.L. Helton was pastor. The building stands as a testimony of the love for the Lord and the church members sacrificed greatly during wartime to give for the rebuilding. In the 1950's, the congregation continued to grow, and a three-story education wing was added.

Zion Hill has had many pastors through the years who have tried to lead the church to reach the community for Christ. That work is still ongoing under the leadership of Rev. Floyd Powell. Many members have served the church faithfully through the years. We are thankful for their sacrifice and dedication to ensure Zion Hill continues to stand as a beacon to the lost in the community.
