Saint Paul Missionary Baptist Church
Organized in 1896 with Rev. Henry Williams as pastor. This congregation built its first sanctuary on a nearby lot donated by W. I. Porter. That small wooden structure was dedicated August 12, 1896.
The congregation grew and the present brick church was constructed in 1919. It was dedicated January 1, 1920, by Pastor Rev. C. J. Smith, with the Rev. Dr. L. Waiters Pastor. The 100th anniversary was celebrated in 1996, using the theme "We have come this far by faith." Saint Paul M.B. Church has been a blessing to the faith community it serves.
