Our History
St. James organized in 1916.  The first meeting place was a house on Death Alley.  Sometime later the first building was obtained on Gaulbert Street between Floyd and Arthur Streets.  In 1965 under the leadership of Rev. J.R. Chisley the church purchased its present sanctuary and adjoining properties.

WE BELIEVE… in one God who exists in three distinct persons (the triune God). God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Matthew 5:16, 45; 6:1, 4, 8, 9; James 1:17, John 1:1; 14:9, Genesis 1:2; John 4:24; 14:16-20; 2 Peter 1:21, John 16:5-1, Acts 1:7-8, Romans 8:26-27

WE BELIEVE… Jesus Christ is God's one and only Son and is our one and only Savior, Who died and was buried, and Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day, (John 1:14; 1 John 4:9, John 3:16,2 Peter 3:18, Luke 23:44 - 24:8, John 20:24-29, 1 Corinthians 15:3-8)

WE BELIEVE… the entire Bible is inspired by God, without error and the authority on which we base our faith, conduct and doctrine. God inspired the autographs (original writings) of the Scripture and those autographs were consequently without error. (Mark 12:36, John 14:26, 16:12-15, Acts 1:16, 1 Corinthians 2:12-13, 2 Timothy 3:14-16, 2 Peter 1:20-21)

WE BELIEVE… water baptism is a symbol of the cleansing power of the blood of Christ and an outward testimony to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 10:9, Acts 2:38)

WE BELIEVE… in the regular taking of Communion as an act of remembering what the Lord Jesus did for us on the cross. (1 Corinthians 11:25)

We BELIEVE… every believer should be in a growing relationship with Jesus by obeying God’s Word, yielding to the Holy Spirit and by being conformed to the image of Christ. (Romans 12:1)

WE BELIEVE… as children of God, we are overcomers and more than conquerors and God intends for each of us to experience the abundant life He has in store for us. (Romans 8:35-39)
