This is the 15th anniversary of the church.
It’s one of the oldest Baptist churches in the United States and the birthplace of Baptist ministers, the Rev. James Brown and his wife, the Reverend Mary Jane Brown.
This is the first time in nearly a century that the church has hosted a major event.
The first major event for the church was the 1892 wedding of Rev. Brown and Rev. Mary Jane, with the bride serving as a minister for the first 100 years of the denomination.
The church has also hosted various events including a movie screening of the movie “The Lord’s Prayer” in 1989.
The pastor was also one of several guests at the wedding of then-Missouri Governor Charles F. Davis, who was appointed by President Warren G. Harding in 1928 to serve as the first Baptist governor of the state.
In the early 1950s, a television show was created that featured several episodes of “The Bible” featuring a series of famous Baptist ministers.
In 1968, the church also hosted the first “Christian Radio” show.
In 1979, the radio station was purchased by the National Broadcasting Company.
In the 1990s, the congregation hosted the “Mountain of Life” radio show, which featured radio hosts Dr. Phil and W. W. Phelps.
The show was canceled in 1995 after the radio host had his arm amputated due to a car accident.
In 2004, the Baptist church hosted the wedding anniversary of Revs.
Brown, Brown and Mary Jane.
The ceremony was attended by more than 3,500 people, including celebrities including actress Eva Longoria, singers Sarah Vaughan and Chris Stapleton, musicians Steve Winwood and Roberta Flack, as well as leaders of the Baptist denomination.
A church-wide celebration of the 150th anniversary was held at the Emanuel Baptist Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, on Saturday, June 1, 2017.
In the past, the celebration has featured the unveiling of a new stained glass window to mark the anniversary.

The new window will be the largest and most impressive church-made window ever built in the state of Minnesota, and will be dedicated at the church’s new “Mansion of Hope” facility in St Paul, a former factory that was once home to a hospital.
The unveiling was preceded by a concert at the new “Gospel Hall” that included songs by the band, performed by the choir, and a choir tribute to pastor Brown.
The celebration also included a public service and a presentation of the stained glass.
