Community Baptist was founded by the late Reverend Belton Brooks. After the death of Reverend Brooks in 1968, Reverend Norman Howard became the Pastor of Community Baptist Church. God instructed Reverend Howard to build a new church in 1972. With the help of the Lord, his experience in carpentry, electrical work, masonry experience; and the cooperation of his twelve members; Pastor Howard built the sanctuary we worship in today. Community Baptist Church is a 35 by 70 square foot edifice, equipped with pulpit, padded pews, piano, various instruments, and a baptismal pool; all debt free.
After 41 years of preaching and teaching Gods Word, Bishop Howard went home to be with the Lord on June 26, 2009.
On November 1, 2009 the members of Community Baptist Church voted and installed Reverend Harold Howard as the new Pastor of Community Baptist Church. Following in his father’s footsteps and being lead by God; Community Baptist is still today being fed the Bread of Life.
