The first black church of Quitaque, Texas was organized in 1928 by Pastor J. K. King. The charter members were Johnny Williams and Emma Williams of Hobbs, New Mexico, as well as Carrie Williams, Laura Wyatt, Nannie Williams, Richard Greene, Clara Greene, Brother Gilmore, Fannie Turner, and Monroe Turner of Edgewood, Texas.

The church was organized in the old school building.  Rev King reigned until 1933.  The members then called Rev Street to minister in 1936. He served until 1941.  About this time the church body decided to get a place of their own.  It took part of 1942 and 1943 to complete and move into the new church home.

Rev F. M. Hall was called in the early 40's to be the pastor.  He resigned in 1950.  In 1952, Rev E. L. Lawrence of Chillicothe, Texas was called to pastor the church.  Pastor Lawrence served until his death.  He was called home in an automobile accident on his way home from Sunday service.

The church was without a Sheppard until August of 1968 when Rev Bennie Anderson was called to lead the church.  Rev Anderson was pastor for 20 years until his death.  Once again the church was without a leader. In 2001 Rev Willie J. Windom was called to lead and is currently serving at Macedonia Baptist Church.

Though the community of Quitaque is small, and many of its black people are deceased or have chosen to move on, a few remain keeping its only black church alive.  Those members are Elzora Gallington (oldest member), Wynell Anderson (widow of Rev Bennie Anderson), Velma Windom (wife of Rev Willie Windom), Willie (Junior) and Mary Dell Scoggins, Melba Clardy-Brittian, Raymond Clardy, Don and Zeola Taylor, Billie Dowd, and Cookie Dowd.

We want to pay tribute to those who helped establish a place of worship for the black people of Quitaque and to those who remain to keep the light shining.

A church is truly "a light upon a hill" ......A beacon, to lead us on the right path.
