Broadway church of Christ was founded in the fall of 1914.

The church began in the home of a Sister Vaughn. The original group began with three ladies and a brother J. L. Dupree. This group represented the original congregation of the church of Christ in Galveston Texas.

On December 1, 1946 the Broadway congregation met at its current location (17th and Broadway), for the first time.

On January 1, 1956, the first church bulletin of record was published. Sisters Marie Doshier and Louise Harrington began producing the Sunday bulletin. Marie continue with this work until her death in 2015.

In 1974, Sister Anna Rains purchase property in Crystal Beach Texas to start a congregation overseen by Broadway church of Christ, on Channel Island. Brother Loren and Sister Margaret Winters conducted services at that location.
