On lands deeded to the organizing group by Mr Robert T BASSETT, Beulah Baptist Church (Negro) was erected. Located at Beldoc, S C, the church was organizedin 1882.

The first pastor was the Reverend C H ANDERSON. The charter members consisted of nineteen persons representing substantial families of that era.

There were nine original deacons of the church.

The present membership of Beulah consists of 75 (1970) members, many of whom are descendants of the nineteen charter members. The Rev. B S SCOTT is the present pastor (in 1970).
