INDIAN LAND – Damascus Road Baptist Church is a new church along U.S. 521 that preaches an old-fashioned message, its founders say.
It was the vision of four local families in the same Bible study class to begin their own church. Pastor Chris Tipton of Lancaster was chosen as its spiritual leader and services began in the former firehouse at 4289 Charlotte Highway on May 16.
“We are a new, old-fashioned church. We believe in the Scripture and the word of God,” said Tipton, 45, who is also the store manager of Walmart in Lancaster.
