In May 1982 the Shiloh Baptist Church of 2079 West Columbia Avenue, College Park called to its pastorate the Rev. C. L. Carter, Sr. Upon Rev. Carter’s arrival, Shiloh became known as the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church. To commemorate this, a Fiftieth Anniversary Edition Church Yearbook was published as a milestone in the history of the church.
God began to shower the church with his blessings. The congregation began to grow so rapidly until there was not sufficient seating for the worshippers. Eventually, there was standing room only. At this point it became clear that we were in need of a larger church home. It grieved us deeply to have to turn worshippers away from hearing the Word of God due to the lack of seating space. On July 8, 1984 we moved into our glorious and marvelous church edifice located at 3972 Northwest Drive in the city of College Park. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!
Our church was reorganized with new church officials and staff. On Sunday, October 28, 1984 we joined together and dedicated our new church home to the honor of God’s most holy name, to the glory of God the Father, who had called us by his grace, to the honor of His Son, Jesus the Christ, who loved us and gave himself for us and to the praise of the Holy Spirit, who illuminates and sanctifies us. As we have progressed through the years, in December 2010 we have been given the blessed opportunity to hold worship services at 6105 Mableton Pkwy in Mableton, Georgia. On July 22, 2018 we held worship service at our current location, 3725 Flat Shoals Rd., College Park. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
First Missionary believes in the Word of God. We believe that in order to be viewed as being great in the sight of God, we must become servants of all. We believe that by serving our fellow man we serve God. We must always be mindful that we have been commissioned to Evangelize the Word, Guard the Truth, Edify the Saints and Discipline the Unruly, therefore, we believe in maximizing our potential through Evangelism, Discipleship, Fellowship, Ministry and Worship.
