Built in 1964 by friends of Governor Jimmie H. Davis. These friends are of many faiths, people who believe in the church and who are dedicated to the promotion of Christian living and to the songs of Christian inspiration.

It was here on these grounds that Governor Davis graduated from the Beech Springs High School and his father and mother once lived a few feet back of this building.
The construction of this tabernacle was first suggested by W.L. "Buddy" Billups.
