HISTORY: Church was purchased from the United Brethren denomination by the Rev. Clyde Brown in the 50s. A new building was constructed in the early 1980s.

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL SOMEONE WANTING TO VISIT? Expect a warm and friendly little church. We are family and welcome new members into our fellowship. Our motto is, "Where Jesus is Lord," and we try to abide by that motto. We are an elderly church who would like to grow in number but cannot until someone with youngsters gets our vision and stays to build the youth up. We teach and preach from the King James Version and, I guess, are a little old fashioned.
