In 1946 the first phase of the east educational building was constructed.

In 1954 the sanctuary was constructed.

Many great activities and ministry that benefited the community were done for years until the church began to experience a period of decline and economic challenge.

On December 25, 2011 Rev. Semaj Y. Vanzant, Sr. became the senior pastor of this ministry. He was joined in ministry by the associate pastor, Rev. Linda Truitt.
