The first church record book (1845-1862) is missing, but notes taken from it indicate that the charter members were Hiram Reeves, E. G. Reeves, Isaac Atteberry, and Savena Dabney. The church first united with the Des Moines River Association in August 1846. The statistics show that the church had five members at that time, one of whom had been received after the constitution. Messengers named between 1846 and 1852 included Hiram Reeves, E. G. Reeves, Simeon J. Good, David Sidwell, Tippo S. Williams, Isaac Sidwell, John Hockersmith, and Meshack Hale. The first clerk was Isaac Atteberry. The first deacon was John Taylor.
