Edhube Baptist Church has a rich history. The church was organized on September 18, 1894 by Rev. Henry Fountain Jones in what was then called Bentonville, Texas. In 1919, Bentonville Baptist Church was renamed Edhube Baptist Church coinciding with the name change of the town from Bentonville to Edhube.  The church was founded with 18 charter members and the first sanctuary was built in 1900.

A Texas historical marker was presented to Edhube Baptist Church in 1994 for serving the Lord for a century.
