Inscription.  In September 1868, J. J. Beeson, a missionary for the Tennessee River Association, organized First Baptist Church. At the time, it was affiliated with Center Point Baptist Church. The congregation initially met in a building used by several other denominations. The church's first sanctuary was built on this site in 1878. A fire destroyed the structure in November 1949. The present building was completed in 1953, with additions thereafter. Many congregants have been sent from this mission-minded church to proclaim the Gospel.

Dedicated September 2018 on the occasion of the church's 150th anniversary.
 
Erected 2018 by Alabama Historical Association.
