Church History

March 3, 1966, St. Paul Baptist Mission began in the home of the late Rev. & Mrs. James Walker. Our first church service was held on the first Sunday in July, in our first building on Wisner Avenue.

On February 24, 1979, Rev. Walker retired and Rev. Robert L. Davis was elected to serve as Pastor and Rev. Walker became the Honorary Pastor.

In May 1979, The St. Paul Mission became a formally organized and incorporated church, recognized by the state and denominational bodies.

In March 1982, we officially moved into our present house of worship at 94 Cottage Street.

On May 6, 1984, we celebrated our Cornerstone Laying Ceremony.

In May 1999, we celebrated the “Burning of the Church Mortgage”.

On March 23, 2002, Rev. Robert L. Davis retired from the pastorate.

On April 3, 2004, Rev. Ray Anthony King was elected to serve as Senior Pastor.

Through the leadership of the men of God that has been placed here, our church continues to grow in leaps and bounds.
