In July 2017, a unique partnership was formed between CBC and Dunwoody Baptist Church to replant and revitalize the struggling 130 year old church. This plan included renovating a neglected parsonage, supplementing the new pastor's salary and supporting the congregation and pastor with prayer and people as the church revisioned itself.
On August 1, 2017 Reverend C. Scott Rourk, a church planting missionary pastor for the past 18 years, became the first Replant Pastor of CBC. In his first six months, the congregation stabilized & tripled in size. The church shifted its attention back into the community by becoming missional and emphasizing a disciple making strategy that engages the culture.
Today, CBC intentionally sets aside 10% of its tithe receipts for missions and benevolence. The church partners with local, national and international ministries including the pastor's former church plant in Toronto Canada called Rendezvous. In October 2017, CBC sent it's first international mission team in 130 years to Toronto to work with this church plant.
Chattahoochee Baptist Church was founded in 1884. Church records show that Rev. W.R. Waters was the first pastor. The church started in a brush arbor on the property where the parsonage now stands. A small building was erected in the same location as the brush arbor, on the side of a narrow dirt road called Johnson Ferry. The log building was used until 1907 when a box frame building was built with donated timber and free labor.
Over the years, many additions and improvements were made and additional property was acquired. A parsonage was built and paid for in the mid-seventies. The original church building from 1907 was used until 1981 when the current brick sanctuary was built. It was paid off in 1991.
