Our History

The history of Lake Bowen Baptist Church really is His-story, as God’s hand can be seen time and time again in the ministry of our church. For more than 80 years, we existed as Rock Hill Baptist Church in Inman, South Carolina. As we eventually outgrew the capacity of our land and buildings, we felt God leading us not only to move to a new location, but to change our name as well (especially since Inman is not near the town of Rock Hill, SC).

March 3rd, 2002, marked the culmination of over a decade of prayer, sweat, and faith. On that day, Lake Bowen Baptist Church was officially founded at our present location on Sugar Ridge Road, still in Inman, SC. Since then, with Rev. Mark Williams still as pastor, Lake Bowen has continued to show remarkable growth and has greatly expanded its ministries and outreach. The name and location may have changed, but Lake Bowen Baptist Church continues an ancient purpose to reach our community for Christ.
