The history of Paul Congregational Church can be traced back Salem Congregational Church which was located north of Paul in the dry farm country of the Kimama district.  Salem was organized in 24 March 1913. In 1925, Salem moved into Paul and changed its name to Zoar Congregational Church.  In the early 1930s, a daughter congregation was formed north of the railroad tracks.  It became known as Pilgrim Congregational Church.  In 1936, these two congregations merged together again to form Ebenezer Congregational Church which today is called Paul Congregational Church.
