The congregation was established in 1865. The congregation constructed a wood frame building at the corner of Church St. and Main St. This building fulfilled the congregation's needs until 1914, when the current building was constructed at the same location.[2]

The current building was originally constructed at a cost of a mere $16,000.[2] The most recent addition is a Family Life Center with gym and commercial kitchen and was completed in 2004 at a cost of approximately $1,200,000.00. The church is growing and offers three primary worship services: Sunday Morning 8:30 Traditional, Sunday Morning 10:45 Blended, and Sunday Evening "607" contemporary.
