The Ivy Log Community was the domain of the Cherokee Indians only six short years before the formation of Ivy Log Baptist Church in 1838.  In 1838 not all of the Cherokee had been removed.

The first Church was a log building with a fireplace and the benches made from split logs called puncheons.  It was located in the southwest section of Ivy Log Cemetery.  This church existed for fifty two years.  The church was an important entity for the early settlers. It was a place of worship, it was the school, and a meeting place for community affairs.

The present site was finished in 1948.  Ivy Log Baptist Church has had a full time pastor since 1976.  Ivy Log Baptist Church is still a vital part of the community and serves as a beacon for those who are watching for a returning Saviour.
