A Photographic Study of All Things West Virginia

Bethel Independent Missionary Baptist Church

I am captivated by small country churches and find them to be irresistible photo subjects.  Their stark whiteness is almost regal, they practically leap out from the landscape.  They are an oasis of order and hope, a bastion of civility amidst the unmanaged “rural sprawl” that makes up the West Virginia countryside.

The image that follows shows Bethel Independent Missionary Baptist Church, which is a particularly well-kept country church nestled in the hills near the community of Amma in Roane County, West Virginia.
