Some of the first members were Joseph Chandler, Thomas Wilkins, John Nail, John Mullins, and James Jackson, John Cleveland, Thomas Gilbert, Francis Calloway. Jr, were early pastors. Many landowners and slaves were members. The slave cemetery is to the right of the church on the Yow estate.

The educational building was built in 1955.
