The church was built in 1899 as a Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Land for the church was donated by brothers Alfred and Henry Algood, whose father was a circuit-riding Methodist minister. It is an example of the Carpenter Gothic architectural style. In 1909, a tornado caused extensive damage to the building. Restoration after the tornado included relocating the bell tower to the right-hand side of the building and installing the bell that still hangs there.
In its early years, the church building served as an unofficial community center for Algood and was sometimes used for worship services of other denominations.
