History In the winter of 1942, the Spirit of God moved upon a pastor in Mobile, Alabama to come to the Loxley area and preach the gospel to the residents of Central Baldwin. Reverend Carl Richards responded to God's call, came to Loxley and drove up and down the streets with his public address system, telling the plan of salvation. He found enough interest and with the help of other ministers held a tent revival which lasted eleven weeks. As a result of this great revival, Loxley Church of God was set in order in the home of Bo and Ethel Boone on February 28, 1943 by Brother Richards These faithful servants of the Lord began to work and pray for God to use the church for His glory and praise. Now, sixty-plus years later, Loxley Church of God stands as a beacon of hope to Baldwin County, Alabama and the world. Our membership has grown from nine to several hundred. Our history is one of ordinary people with extraordinary vision and faith, fearing nothing but God and walking in obedience to His Word. From humble beginnings, God has raised up His church. As we look back at our history, we stand firm in the present and move with vision for the future. To God Be The Glory!
