CHURCHES OF ROCKY FORK TOWNSHIP -- RED TOP (CHRISTIAN).

The Christian church at Red Top is one of the oldest churces in this part of Missouri.  The germ or parent organization was founded October 5, 1822, with the following members:  Elders -- Wm. Roberts, Thos. W. McBride and Richard Cave.  Deacons -- Nathan Roberts and Isaac Davis.  Members -- Peter Stice, Richard Wainscott, Richmond T. Roberts, James Roberts, Priscilla Roberts, Sally Davis, Nancy Wainscott, Charlotte Caldwell, Charlotte Stice, Mary Turner.  This organization was before the formation of the Christian or Disciples Church.  The members took for a guide and were ruled by the Bible, and by the Bible alone.  They subscribed to no creed or confession of faith.  They recognized the elders of the church as pastors, and to them all questions of difference were referred.  Afterwards the organization was merged into the Christian church.

The first church building used by this congregation was a log house, built in 1822.  The present house of worship was built in 1867, at a cost of about $3,200.  It is a frame, and stands on section 15, township 50, range 12.  John O. White did the first preaching therein.

The pastors of the church have been Thos. McBride, Richmond T. Roberts, Joel Hayden, Richard Cave, Thos. M. Allen, M. Wills, Wm. White, Thomas Thompson, Elder Davis, Elijah Chrisman, John T.
