In early 1947, the Reverend Harvey Rankin asked the Congress Heights Baptist Church to consider helping to start a place of worship in the area of Carmody Hills. In the summer of that same year a revival meeting was held. The meeting was held under a grove of trees on the lower side of the present site. Looking toward the formation of a church, about 15 people made public declaration of their desire to assist in forming an organization in the area. The first lots purchased were at 73rd and F Streets, N.E. Ground was broken on June 19, 1948.
In early 1951, all of the 10 lots had been purchased in full and an entranceway to the church was made on 73rd Street. The church purchased a heating plant in May 1952; at that time plans for the chapel’s second unit were drawn. Groundbreaking services took place February 1953, and construction begun in March 1953. On December 6, 1953, the Carmody Hills Baptist Church was dedicated as a chapel and became a church. A transition began in the late 1970’s. The community grew and surrounded the church. With continued steady growth came a need for more space. The groundbreaking service was held on March 14, 1981. The building project was completed and on Sunday, January 12, 1986, the Carmody Hills Baptist Church family marched triumphantly through the community and into the new edifice for worship; celebrating the Church dedication in grand style.
From the late 1970 through 2000 many ministries blossomed and were incorporated because of the vision of the great men chosen to shepherd the Carmody Hills’s family to name a few:
Senior Choir Male Chorus Usher Board
Deacon Board Bible Study Trustee Board
Women’s Ministry Praise Ministry Missionary Outreach
Transportation Ministry Youth Ministry Christian Education
