This church was organized in 1894 by founders Antey Graham, Beney Graham, Samuel Graham, Will Hill, and Ben Wilson, and later became a member of the Kingston lake Association. The first sanctuary, a frame building, was build about 1913 and located near what is now S.C. Hwy. 90; it was later on Boroughs Road.

In 1943 the old sanctuary was moved to this site by a team of mules. the present brick sanctuary, the second serving the congregation, was built in 1971.
