About Us

TRUE GOSPEL MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH
         
In the year of our Lord, 1955, True Gospel M. B. Church was founded and called as pastor Rev. Robert L. Blake.  On October 3, 1954 President G. W. Reed, of Reed College of Religion organized the church then located at 99th and Avalon consisting of fourteen members – two deacons, two mothers, two ushers and five choir members.  Among the faithful members were Dea. & Sis. Eugene Walton, Dea. & Sis. George Vison, Bro. & Sis. H. Hunt, Mother M. Williams and Bro. & Sis. N. Tyner, Sr.  The Lord blessed and added members at the first meeting namely Sis. Leona Blake, Mother Beatrice Tye, Bro. & Sis. M. Tye and family also Sis. Rachel McGlover; with continued prayer and obedience to God the membership grew each Sunday.

In March, 1955 we relocated to our present address and in March, 1961 enlargement completed.  On May 18, 1975 the mortgage was burned and November 7, 1976 the cornerstone was laid.

Pastor Blake served for 27 years until December 1981 when he laid down his sword for his crown in glory.  Rev. Nathaniel Tyner, Sr. served as pastor for thirteen years; Rev. Artis Glass, Jr. served for one year, and our present Pastor Henry Ellis serves.

Many sons have been birth by True Gospel and many souls saved.  We continue to be a church built on a solid foundation which is Jesus Christ and pressing toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
