Church History

Mt. Elon is located on the outskirts of Lydia, S.C., and immediately on the banks of Sparrow Swamp, was organized on the second Sunday in June, 1831. 

The name Mt. Elon came from the large number of oak trees in this location. Elon is the Hebrew word for “oak”, thus Mt. Elon is the mountain of strength. 


Mt. Elon Baptist Church is a warm and caring fellowship of believers. Our members have supported the Southern Baptist Convention through the cooperative program as well as contributing to the support of the Welsh Neck Baptist Association.
