Our church was organized in 1947.
Pastor Roy L. Roberson had a burden to plant a church in the community. As a result, in February of 1947 Southwood Baptist Church was organized in the home of Mr. & Mrs. Herbert Brent.
In April of 1947 worship services
were held in a tent on the corner of Avalon Blvd. and 122nd Street. That property was purchased in1949. The first building was erected there in 1951. That building was rebuilt to the current structure in 1963.
Pastor Roy L. Roberson, with the support of his wife
Sis. Rosa Roberson, and many faithful members throughout the years have done a tremendous work to the glory of God.
“I was glad when they said unto me,
Let us go into the house of the Lord.”
