Daniel 4:3

In 1832, Virginia planters came to the Alabama Territory and settled in an area that is now part of Talladega, Alabama. The settlers founded the Alpine Baptist Church, now the oldest church in continuous service in Talladega County.

In 1872, the colonial wood frame building was moved its present site. To step inside is to take a step back in history. The antique clear clear glass windows, high ceilings, green shutters, and calm quiet give the visitor a feeling of being in a special place. A place where everybody is somebody.

Alpine Baptist Church is a member of the Coosa River Baptist Association, comprised of sixty-seven (67) cooperating churches. The Coosa River Baptist Association partners with the Alabama Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention.
