The Birth of a Dream.... 1871
MILFORD BAPTIST CHURCH was established more then 145 years ago!!
The Civil War had ended just six years earlier and Atlanta still lay in ruins. As Sherman marched south to Atlanta, he left a lot of Marietta and surrounding areas in shambles, but the spirit and determination of these simple farmers could not be destroyed. Out of the rubble and ashes of that time, in the Northwest portion of what would later be called Metro Atlanta, a vision arose! A church was needed to meet the needs of the changing community. Milford Baptist Church was organized in 1871, as a mission of Concord Baptist Church.!!
