Our Church was organized on August 23, 1863 with eleven charter members. The First pastor was Hogan Allen. They met in a log school house. Tradition tells us that so many showed up to the organization service that the school house would not hold them. Promise Land Church was named for the community. We are told that when T.J. Wells moved to the area he wrote to his family and friends that he had "found the land of promise." From this, the community located five miles northeast of Hamburg, came to be known as the Promise Land community. The Lord has blest the efforts of this Church through the years as we have transitioned through many facilities because of growth. Still one thing remains, the reason we are here! Jesus is our Lord and Savior and we want to worship, honor, and serve Him through our local New Testament Church.
