The Dripping Spring Baptist Church was constituted in the community schoolhouse on Saturday before the third Sunday in December 1850. Rev. William I. Morton preached the sermon. The charter members in the organization were composed of persons, who were holding letters from the Union and Pleasant Grove Churches. These members were as follows: Thomas M. James, John W. Mimms, James A. Page, James A. Boyer, Samuel W. Page, Robert Bagby, William Page, Russell Miller, David W. Mimms, William Sanders, Sarah A. James, Mary Mimms, Priscilla Page, Mary Miller and Louisa I. Page. After prayer, the hand of fellowship was extended to the members of the new church by Elder William I, Morton and by two deacons of the Mt. Pleasant Church, namely Edward Mosley and Daniel Maddox. Thomas N. James and James O. Boyer were ordained deacons. Brethren James O. Boyer and Thomas N. James were elected clerks to serve alternately year by year. The second Sunday and Saturday before the second Sunday in each month was adopted as the time for regular worship. Elder James B. Lamb was elected pastor by private ballot at the first regular conference meeting. Brother Lamb began his work as pastor of the church on Saturday before the second Sunday in February 1851. On that meeting day William Page and Amanda Page were received for baptism. The church was received in the Bethel Association in its session with the Old Bethel Church the following September. The churchs report to the Association showed ten members had been received by baptism, and a total membership of 44. There were reported 43 members in 1853. In 1855, there were reported 66 members, and Elder J.F. Sanders, a licensed minister, was the only messenger present from the church.
