History of St. John's Missionary Baptist Church Salina KS

In 1879, at the time many of Salina religious groups were just gaining a foothold, a number of the city’s Negro citizens felt the need of a spiritual organization. During the same year, under the leadership of Rev. Harper, St. John’s Baptist was born. There were thirty persons in the organization including Rev. Robert Cox. The church was incorporated on February 3, 1883. In 1923, the first shovel of dirt was thrown at a groundbreaking ceremony at 339 North Ninth Street.

On November 13, 1957, Rev. J.E. Jones accepted the pastorship. St. John’s continued to grow spiritually under his leadership. Many physical improvements took place including central air conditioning, renovating the entire church and parsonage exteriorly and interiorly. The membership grew to a total of 450. After 27 years as Pastor of St. John’s, Rev. Jones died in office in 1984. On July 31, 1977, the cornerstone was entered to secure historical data in preparation of the one hundred year centennial celebration, which began December 1978 and continued through November 1979.

Rev. Allen D. Smith enthusiastically accepted the call to fill the pulpit on March 20, 1999. Now it came to pass that in the year of our Lord 1999, the eleventh month, and the 26th day, that a great tragedy befell St. John's Missionary Baptist Church. Just eight months after Rev. Smith’s pastorate began at St. John’s, the church was completely destroyed by a tragic fire. After 120 years, St. John’s was once again without a building – creating a need to build a new physical church. As amazing as it may seem, for the next 119 consecutive Sundays, God made it possible for St. John’s to always find a place for its 150-250 members to worship. A spirit-filled groundbreaking ceremony was held on October 22, 2000 at land purchased at 215 South Chicago. After 17 months of construction, our beautiful sanctuary was completed under the leadership of Rev. Smith. Proceeded by a parade, our first worship service in this church was held on Sunday, March 17, 2002. God has blessed us with a building that will serve our community. As we reach out “Beyond the Walls” we are reminded that the “Real Temple” of God is within each one of us.

The power of Christian prayer Help me to avoid every sin
Thanks to Thee, O God, that I have risen today, To the rising of this life itself; may it be to Thine own glory, O God of every gift, and to the glory, aid Thou my soul. With the aiding of Thine own mercy, even as I clothe my body with wool, cover Thou my soul with the shadow of Thy wing. Help me to avoid every sin, and the source of every sin to forsake, and as the mist scatters on the crest of the hills, may each ill haze clear from my soul, O God.
