First Baptist Church, Huntsville, Alabama

The First Baptist Church of Huntsville, Alabama was organized on June 3, 1809. The first name of the church was  West Fork of Flint River Church. It was renamed Enon Church shortly thereafter.  John Canterbury was called as the pastor on August 2, 1809.

This group became a charter member of the Flint River Baptist Association in 1814. Services were held in members' homes until a log meetinghouse was constructed in 1813. This building served until 1825 when a brick church was constructed three miles northeast of Maridianville.

In 1861 under the leadership of Pastor Eugene Strode, the congregation moved to Huntsville. The Enon Baptist Church was renamed First Baptist Church of Huntsville in 1895.
