Keepers of the faith


From its earliest years in the mid-1700s, religious faith had taken root in the area which is now Johnston County. In those years, Anglicans and Baptists shared the territory. The Anglican Church was the first to build a structure in Johnston County when a chapel was constructed in 1765.

Today, Johnston County has more than 300 churches representing all major denominations. The Smithfield-Selma area itself, has nearly 200 churches.

The ecumenical spirit is alive and functioning in the communities and the county, with parishioners working together for community betterment. The picture at right is the sanctuary of Centenary United Methodist Church in Smithfield.
