The church was started in the home of Donald and Ruth Puckett located at 170 East Meadows Road, Thomasville, N.C., in the early 80's. There were about 12 members attending at this time. The congregation met there for six weeks, and then relocated to a store-front building on English Road in High Point, N.C. Promise Baptist Church remained at this location for three years. The church then moved to its current location at 11 Maiden Park Drive, Thomasville, N.C. 27360.
