This church, clad in red brick has white cast stone trim. It was built on a corner and utilizes this location with two pedimented porticos facing each street. The porticos feature giant ordered Ionic columns. One of the more unique feature of the church is the flattened dome sitting on its flat roof. The site was acquired in 1915 by the church, which was organized in 1894. The building replaced a smaller, wooden building that was built here after the site was purchased. This church has played an important role in Fort Worth's Black Community. An education wing was built to the rear of the sanctuary in 1960 out of matching brick and cast stone trim.
