Inscription. Led by The Rev. I. B. Kimbrough, nineteen charter members organized the First Missionary Baptist Church of Floyd County in December 1890. Early worship services were held in R. M. Irick's dugout home and the Irick schoolhouse southwest of Lockney. In 1899 the congregation merged with Lockney Baptist Church of Lone Star but retained the name First Missionary Baptist Church of Floyd County. The congregation met in the town schoolhouse until a sanctuary was built in 1906. The name was changed to First Baptist Church of Lockney in 1913.
