Sonora Missionary Baptist Church was organized on October 27, 1957 under the leadership of Rev. and Mrs. Charles Reynolds. Under the leadership of Pastor Reynolds, the Lord God truly blessed our church with growth, spirituality and compassion for all people.
Since our beginnings, the Lord God has blessed us with some great leaders to pastor us along the way – Rev. Robert L. Johnson, Rev. John B. Willis, Sr., Rev. E. R. McClendon, again Rev. John B. Willis, Sr., Rev. Charles E. Willis, and our current pastor, Rev. Lionel Jackson.
Under the leadership of Pastor Jackson, Sonora continues to grow and enjoy God’s blessings. We continue yearly in the beautification of our edifice, through the expansion of our media ministry, through outreach to our community and in fellowship – sponsoring events such as: Homecoming’s, Back to School picnics, Clothing Give-A-Ways, Food pantry, etc. just to name a few.
Through many trials and tribulations, “We’ve Come This Far By Faith.” We ask God to continue to bless this house, truly, “A House Not Made By The Hands of Man.”
