Houston Places of Worship

Houston Places of Worship

Houston Places of Worship begin with a missionary baptist church founded in 1868, progressive baptist churches founded in the early and mid-20th century, and continue to black mega-churches in the suburbs. If you follow the Christian faith of Nation of Islam, you will find a spiritual home here.

Antioch Missionary Baptist Church
DESCRIPTION: Founded in 1868 by Jack Yates and other ex-slaves, in the same year Yates became an ordained minister. By 1875, Antioch members built a brick church. Rev Yates also led the church in working with the federal government to setup one of three Freedmen’s Bureau schools in Houston. The current edifice was built in 1910 and renovated in the 1930s. Today the church provides character and charm in contrast to the surrounding skyscrapers and parking garages. It is a National and State Historic Landmark. In addition to Sunday services and numerous community outreach programs, the church is known as an oasis for noon-time prayer services to office workers.
