Our History


In 1986, Holmes Terrace Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee purchased ten acres of land on a two lane road known as Goodman Road in Southaven, Mississippi.  From that time, services were held in a borrowed building while members volunteered their time and labor to build a church.

Clearview Baptist Church held their first service in their brand new building at the current location of 3345 Goodman Road on June 14, 1987.

The year 2012 marked the 25th anniversary of Clearview Baptist Church.
