Fifth Missionary Baptist Church, Former Sixth Church of Christ, Scientist

I looked at Fifth Missionary Baptist way back in October of 2013 on a cloudy day, and I went back on a sunny Saturday morning to take another look.

As should be obvious, this is the former Sixth Church of Christ, Scientist, which as we saw just last week, continues the Beaux-Arts style that its founder had proposed to differentiate her buildings from other denominations. Of course, as we’ve seen elsewhere in St. Louis, there are notable exceptions.

The building is still in great shape, though it looks like a vehicle slammed into the right side of the front steps at some point recently.

    My grandpa was the pastor of this church from the 90s to 2008. My best memories were inside of this gorgeous building. I still have dreams about all of its beauty. Thank you for this info 🫶🏽
