Enon Church
Enon Primitive Baptist Church was constituted 7 June 1845, by Elders Spencer, Edwards and Charles Jones, near Havana, in Cass County, fifteen miles west of Line Ferry, on Sulphur River, with the following members: T.J. Foster, Elizabeth Barcraft, Rebecca Kolbe, Malissa Henson, and Bythena Davis. Elders Edwards and Jones preached for thie church, til 1847, when Elder Mark Allen was chosen and served until 1850, at which time Elder Michael Burkhalter was chosen and served til 1860, when Elder Jacob Hering was called and served til 1878, when Elder J.W. Barley was called and served til 1882, at which time Elder J. W. Griffin was called and served til 1893. Elders J. W. and J. S. Griffin, have served the church since 1882. This church passed resolutions of non-fellowship for absolute predestination of all things, including sin and the no change doctrine. This church is one of the pioneer Churches, and desires credit for the stability in the faith and practice of the Primitive Baptists in Texas.
