Many years ago, the elders at the Charlotte Avenue Church of Christ in Rock Hill began planning a new church in the rapidly growing Fort Mill area. Property was sought and eventually acquired just off Interstate 77 on Gold Hill Road. Plans for the building were laid out, an initial meeting location place was determined and a minister was hired. Before the first service, plans were in place for worship, education curriculum, and other vital activities.
On June 2, 1996, the Church of Christ at Gold Hill Road met for the first time at the Ramada Inn in Fort Mill; SC. Fifty-six attended that first worship service. Less than ten years later, an average of over 300 people worship together on Sunday mornings at the church facility on Gold Hill Road and today we regularly average over 350 in attendance.
Since our inception, the congregation has been blessed with many baptisms and restorations. Equally important is the continued spiritual and personal growth among our members. Gold Hill Road Church of Christ continues to grow through local evangelism efforts and the rapid growth in south Charlotte, NC and the Fort Mill, SC area.
The Elders at Gold Hill Road decided to begin building the foundation for another congregation in the Clover, SC area. Land was purchased and about 45 members from Gold Hill Road formed the nucleus of the Clover Church of Christ. Sunday, February 3rd, 2013, the Clover congregation began meeting in their new building.
The congregation remains doctrinally pure and blessed with peace. To God be the glory.
The Church of Christ at Gold Hill Road is deeply indebted first to God and the Charlotte Avenue congregation, as well as many other congregations and individuals. More than ever, we have a keen sense of responsibility to carry out the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19). We look forward to a long and rich history of service in the kingdom.
