Description
This photo of Greater True Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, located at 1843 W. Vernon Ave. shows a simple, unassuming single-story gray building with a dark gray roof and white trim. Several steps on the right and a ramp on the left lead to the main entrance, which has a large white cross above white double doors. A black banner with white letters hanging from the railing reads "Greater True Friendship Missionary Baptist Church; 1839-43 West Vernon Avenue; Where the Word of God is taken seriously!" A parking lot is adjacent to the church and a black security fence surrounds the entire area. Residential homes are on the right, as well as behind the church. Verso on photograph states that this church was formerly known as Kneseth Israel Congregation (Jewish), but it does not list when it acquired its current name. Photo dated: April 2004.
