Abstract
Articles of faith, rules of decorum, meeting minutes, membership rolls, and a church history of a Taylor County church of the Regular Baptist denomination. The records reflect the problems and growth of a church which changed its name and location from Laurel Run to Oak Grove and part of whose records were lost in a fire. There is a record of this church belonging to the local Goshen Baptist Association whose most prominent member is the historic sister church, Forks of the Cheat Baptist.
