Jesus Saves

Considered, perhaps, to be Houston’s most historic church, Antioch Missionary Baptist Church dates back to 1875, and is now almost surrounded by downtown skyscrapers. It was Houston’s first black church built for the newly emancipated slaves, providing them a place to worship and develop educationally.

It became somewhat famous, as television viewers worldwide saw its iconic “Jesus Saves” sign framed in front of the collapsing Enron Corporation’s headquarters (seen in this image)
