Inscription. This spiritual and civic citadel was established in 1929 with Rev. R.H. Whittaker as spiritual leader, and Chairman of the Board of Deacons, D.P. Mims. This church, the gateway to New Augustine, experienced phenomenal growth under the inspired leadership of Rev. J.A. Wright, beginning in 1955—becoming a spiritual beacon of New Augustine and emerging leader and light of civic pride in The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Among the Vanguard of Civil Rights, and Shiloh Baptist communicants, were the following: Marie Smith, Pauline Williams, Valerie Brown, Isabelle Jenkins, Valjean Brown, Mary Mitchell, Gloria Washington, Christine Brown, Sophronie Miller, and Ethel Jenkins.
