On July 11, 1982, a small group of believers met at the home of Rev. and Sis. Steve Small for the purpose of seeking God’s guidance and discussing the organizing of a new church. After much discussion it was moved that we unite and form a new church and that the name of the church would be True Life Missionary Baptist Church. An organizing council was summoned consisting of the Rev. John Mason, the Rev. Zonnie Stuckey, the Rev. R. A. Anderson, and the Rev. Steve Small; and on Thursday, August 19 1982, the official organizing service for the True Life Missionary Baptist Church was held. On May 12, 1985 (Mother’s Day), a ribbon cutting ceremony was held as we entered our new church located at 275 Chickasaw Drive in Forestdale.
On February 24, 1986, the True Life Missionary Baptist Church was accepted into the Birmingham Baptist Association, having been sponsored by the Philadelphia Baptist Church of Cahaba Heights, Rev. W. Allen Murphy, Pastor. True Life Missionary Baptist Church is privileged with a dual relationship with the National Baptist Association and the Southern Baptist Association providing for wider realms of service.
Praise be to God from whom all blessings flow!
