Saint Philip A.M.E. Church was established in 1865 making it the oldest A.M.E. Church in the state of Georgia. The church was organized by the Reverend A. L. Stanford in Savannah, Georgia, at the close of the Civil War.
After the church was destroyed in a storm in 1896, the congregation voted to move it to a more convenient location at West Broad and Charles Street. The present modern brick structure, designed by African American architect, was completed in 1909.
