General information

In September of 1955, twenty-five Christians had a calling on their lives to establish a place of worship. At that time, there was only one Black Baptist Church in the city of Alamogordo. So, they began to meet at the Prince Hall Lodge #11 located at 310 Delaware Avenue for Prayer Service. While it is good to pray, we all need to hear the words of the Lord. “And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?” So a few weeks later, they chose the Carpenter’s Union Hall, located on Pennsylvania Avenue for their church services and then asked Reverend Frank Pinkney, a Methodist Minister, to preach for them. In October of 1955, an invitation was extended to local and district churches to participate in the formal organization of the church. Reverend H. B. Johnson of Fabens, Texas, served as Moderator of the meeting. A name was chosen, and “New Zion Baptist Church,” was accepted as the name for the church. The following officers were elected to serve as Deacons: Tyler Traylor, Elijah Johnson, Jr., A. V. Richards, Will Givens, Ebenezer Taylor, James Patterson, A. D. Burton, and Charlie Blake. In the same meeting, Sister Eliza Stewart was elected as the Church Clerk and Reverend I. Samuel Swisher of Las Cruces, NM was chosen as pastor of the congregation. A few months later, property was purchased from Mr. & Mrs. Jack Wagoner at 308 Maryland Avenue for the church construction. Mrs. Alice Swisher was very instrumental in assisting the church to obtain the property. She ensured all financial obligations were easily handled. Previously, a house located on the church-site was moved to the rear of the property to accommodate church services until the edifice was completed. Grounds Breaking Day was held on April 7, 1957. The church edifice was started later in June 1957. To pay for the land and the building of the church, the members sold dinners, cakes and pies. Everyone helped. Those that could cook, cooked. While those that could not, delivered the dinners. Word spreaded quickly throughout the city about the dinners that were being sold. Soon people were stopping by to pick up dinners or place orders for dinners to be delivered. On those days when they had no customers, the members purchased the meals themselves. They also donated money as well as cinder blocks to help build this church. The members knew that, “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.” So, they trusted God to guide them and to bless their endeavors. The Lord gave them the desires of their hearts and the congregation entered the new edifice on December 1, 1957 for the Corner Stone Laying Service. Reverend Frank Jones of First Presbyterian Church in Las Cruces, NM brought the message and Reverend Jack DeVore of First Baptist Church in Las Cruces, NM, gave the Charge to the church. Reverend J. H. Horton of Artesia, NM, served as the Master of Ceremony. By that time, the Church had approximately 175 members. There have been five ministers that have pastored at New Zion: Pastors I. Samuel Swisher, 1955-1964 A. T. McCargo, 1964-1972 Wilson Holly, 1972-1976 James A. Hopkins, 1976-1988 Willard L. Avery, 1988-Present Today, we reap the benefits of those twenty-five founding members. Many are gone home now, but two are still with us. They are Sister Rosa L. Lee and Sister Carnell Taylor. The Lord has blessed us to have Sister Rosa L. Lee and Sister Carnell Taylor still working here at New Zion in His vineyard. We thank God for our founding brothers and sis- ters. They started this work and it is up to us to keep on winning souls to Christ. We all have a job to do. We are no longer selling dinners, cakes and pies, but we are getting others sold on Christ. Let us continue to work for the Lord that He might be glorified, so that men shall see our good works and ask, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
