On August 6th, 1893, the Roger Memorial Gospel Hall was opened, providing a permanent place of worship for Christians and a center for aggressive evangelistic work. By the end of 1894 the church membership has more than 500 people. In 1900, Rev.W.R.Manley took charge of Kurnool work in the furlongh period of Dr. Staton. In the spring of 1910 to 1912 Rev.G.J.Huizinga took up the reins in the II furlongh period. On the 25th May, 1918, the Kodmur Baptist Church was organized.
From 1813 American Foreign Missions were allowed by the British government to proclaim the gospel & to do social services in India, for their successful completion of their services for more than 100 years and In recognition of Divine Power Revealed in the beginning and growth of American Foreign Missions, 1813 – 1913.
