This congregation dates back to 1843. Its first house of worship became a Union Army hospital following the Battle of Stones River, and was later donated to an African-American congregation. After the Civil War, the church erected its second building, on the site now occupied by St. Paul's Episcopal Church; the Tennessee Baptist Convention was organized there in 1874. The current building was erected in 1920, after a fire destroyed the previous church. During the Great Depression, members were forced to sell the church, but gathered funds to re-purchase it in 1941.
