    Congregation organized in 1867 by the Rev. J. Hill Bounds, an immigrant from Mississippi who brought his family to Texas by ox-wagon in 1865. At first this church, as well as others in Wortham, shared a two-story building with the local Masonic Lodge. T. A. Bounds (son of J. Hill Bounds) donated this present, centrally located site. Bishop Kenneth Copeland (born 1912) of the Texas Conference joined this church as a boy, and at 17 held a revival here. A 1930s revival leader was Bishop John C. Broomfield. Present edifice was built 1925.
