Oldest Baptist church in Oklahoma. Fountain Baptist Church is located in Haynes, Okla. Founded in 1832, it's first pastor was Rev. John Davis, who was succeeded by Rev.David Rollins. In the 1860's and 70's it also was the school for the surrounding community. The church also providing a meeting place for the representatives of Creek freedmen after the civil war to plan for meetings with the BIA to be included in the Creek Nation. Alfred Barnett and Philip Lewis both discuss the church in testimony in their Indian -pioneer history project biographies. Rev. William Brown, a dynamic young Pastor is poised to lead the congregation today and into the future. Many descendants of early Creek freedman ancestors attend to this day.
