Temple Memorial Baptist Church
Churches in High Point, NC
Having left the mother church Bethlehem Baptist Church, Temple Memorial Baptist Church had its beginning the 3rd Sunday in October, 1938, when a tiny group of devout Christians met under a tree at the corner of Fairview, Taylor and Loflin streets, with Rev. A. S. Townsend for the goal of organizing a church. The founding of this church which later became known as Mt. Zion Baptist Church was the result of a few dedicated believers, who sought peaceful worship, and an opportunity to serve. The Mt. Zion Church opened its doors in a storefront on Loflin Street.
