WaterStone Church (founded as Warrior Baptist Church in 1885) is a Baptist church located at 210 South Brake Street in Warrior, across the street from Warrior Elementary School. The pastor is Jerrel Brown. The church is planning to relocate to a site near the second Warrior exit on I-65 in order to accommodate growth.

The church was known as Warrior Missionary Baptist Church from 1895 to 1953, then became Warrior First Baptist Church until 1957 when it modified the name to First Baptist Church of Warrior. The new name was one of hundreds of suggestions from members which were voted upon in February 2008. Of the 78% of members approving a change, 90% preferred "Waterstone Church".
