Located in the Berea community, now called Red Oak, Josephus Lathan founded this Disciples of Christ Church on April 15, 1871. In 1878, it had its first Sunday school service. The church bought a lot in 1883 and a church was built in 1885. In 1953, the church underwent several enhancements, including a nursery. A new place to worship was begun on April 23, 1973. However, on May 25, 1973, a tornado destroyed it. The first worship service in the new church was held on June 10, 1973.
