The History of Oak Level
Established in 1891, we were formed by the vision of a few freed slaves. This gathering of North Houston believers consisted Deacons Lewis Alpins, Matt Ross, Brother Lindsey and Reverend. John Ziegler. Brother Lindsey and Reverend John Ziegler chose the name Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church in 1892 during their first meeting under a brush harbor on US Highway 41. After having served two faithful years, Reverend Zeigler was succeeded by Reverend Andrew Tooks in 1893 who renamed the church Oak Level Missionary Baptist Church. These devoted believers built a small edifice and moved 3 miles up the road on US Highway41. In 2004, under the continued divine guidance of Reverend Clyde L. Turner, the old church became the R.B. Spann Fellowship Hall and our new Sanctuary erected.
