         Champion Hill Missionary Baptist Church history began with its first Worship Service in an abandoned voting booth that predated the Civil War, called "Center Beat." It was located mile southwest of the present location.

            Champion Hill dates its official beginning from the completion of the first church building in 1897. It was a one-story frame building. A belfry tower topped the mother church. Inside was simply a sanctuary, with a pulpit and choir stand. The building sat on a 2-acre tract of the Civil War battlefield owned by the descendants of Sid Champion.
