The Charter Members were; Deacon E. Morrison, Deacon B. Nicholson, Mother Anna Nicholson, Deacon N. Bowie, Mother Sarah Bowie, Elnora Johnson, Amanda Pratt, Deacon W.C. Jackson and Mildred Jackson.
The church moved to 217 Messenger St. in Port Chicago, CA; however when the United States Navy purchased Port Chicago, the congregation relocated to a building located at Poinsettia and Willow Pass Road in West Pittsburg, CA (Now Bay Point) and later moved to the current location in the 1960's.
Rev. Woods appointed Rev. A. R. Prince to serve as interim pastor during the first organizational year. From 1980 to 2000 Rev. CB Stewart served as Pastor of CBC.
