History of Second Missionary Baptist Church

In 1873 seven Junction City residents received a charter for the First Colored Baptist Church. In 1884, after a fire destroyed the original building on West Sixth Street, the congregation built a new building on the present site, at the corner of 10th and Clay site. Under Reverend G. T. Raimer, the church was rechartered as the Second Baptist Church in 1938. In 1960, the present church structure was opened. Twelve years later, the Church name changed for the last time to it's present Second Missionary Baptist Church.
