In 1938, when Pastor Ellison from Jackson TN and about 20 other people assembled together in the old Rosenwald building for the first time as First Baptist Church Selmer, TN. They begin holding services on the first and third Sunday of every month. It was not long after that because of their dedication and hard work they were soon blessed with a place of worship that they could call their own.
Throughout the years, First Baptist Church was honored and blessed to be led by an elite group of anointed men of God. In 1994, under the leadership of Pastor Cecil Cole that First Baptist Church was reconstructed. A new sanctuary, new service times and a new name Cypress Creek First Baptist Church!
In June 2000 after serving as a deacon for several years before, serving as interim pastor for several months, being called by God and elected and embraced by the church administration Minister Clifford E. Wynn Jr. began his journey as the youngest Pastor of Cypress Creek First Baptist Church. With much dedication and determination in 2005 the vision that God gave Pastor Wynn for a bigger sanctuary had come to pass! Under his leadership of 18 years the church has grown both spiritually and numerically!! Ministries have been established such as JamZone (children church), Mending Hearts (nonprofit outreach), prison ministry, greeters, praise team, male chorus and brotherhood. Souls continue to be saved and lives continue to be changed!!
