Church History
During the years 1885 to 1990, a Baptist Mission was organized on South Wall Street in Sioux City, Iowa. In 1887, the first articles of Corporation were filed.
On October 8, 1900 this mission met to organize the first Negro Baptist Church in Sioux City, Iowa. It was named the Mount Zion Baptist Church
In 1902, the Church was incorporated and the building at West 6th and Bluff was purchased. On June 26th 1932 the members of the Church marched to our present location at 1421 Geneva Street, which we purchased.
In September 1947, the cornerstone was laid and the mortgage was burned. The church was paid for.
Our present pastor, Dr. Floyd E. Brown, was called to Pastor on June 21, 1978. Installation services for Dr. Brown was held on Sunday September 17, 1978.
Under Reverend Brown’s leadership from the years 1982 to 1997, the Church has purchased and cleared all property in the square block of Geneva to Silver – 14th Street to 15th Street, and also have obtained two alleyways.
In 1984 we started our Building Fund Drive. In 1987 to 1997 we had a special drive to pay off all debts and to increase our monetary amount in the building fund. Our Theme: (A Decade of Togetherness).
In 1989 an endowment fund was set up and members of the Church were asked to give a pledge towards the new building. In 1995, a closed circuit television was installed in our lower unit. In December 1997 we were debt free, all loans and debts were paid off.
