Historic church gets a facelift

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – They're called 'the little church with the big heart' and Saturday they rededicated their church building.

The members of New Testament Baptist Church on North Madison Street gathered for a special service.

They've spent close to $60,000 giving the church building a facelift inside and out.

The structure is on the historical registry therefore they could not change the physical structure.

The church is in its 55th year of service and has been in its present location for the last 30 years.

"We're giving back to him what is rightfully his, and we beautified it because he doesn't like anything that's dirty, he doesn't dwell in an unclean place," said Tommy Horton, Deacon.

Other churches were in attendance to help celebrate, New Testament Baptist church has roughly 125 members.
