Pressing toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus

Welcome to
Eskridge Grove Missionary Baptist Church

Eskridge Grove Missionary Baptist Church, or "The Grove" as it is affectionately called by its members, is a small church located in Shelby, NC. It was founded in 1890 and the current pastor is Reverend Strickland Maddox. We believe The Holy Bible is the inspired word of God and is the basis for any statement of faith. We band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ personally committed to sharing the Word of God to mankind.


Being a Christian is all about a pesonal relationship with Jesus Christ. Having a personal relationship with God begins the moment we realize our need for Him, admit we are sinners and in faith, receive Jesus Christ as Savior. God, our Heavenly Father, has always desired to be close to us, to have a relationship with us.
