Our late Pastor, Dr. Earnest C. Walton was the founder and organizer of our great church, which began August 13, 1961 on 201 Westover Avenue, where we held services until November 1961.
During the month of November, the church moved to 201 Duncan Avenue. We continued to reside there until November, 1965, at which time we moved to 317 Graydon Avenue.
Significant growth and development was experienced on Graydon Avenue for a period of eight years. In March of 1973, the church was forced to move due to regulations of the Housing Authority. The Housing Authority settled and purchased our land on March 15, 1973 which is when we moved to 7110 Clayton Drive. On the fourth Sunday in August, 1973 we begin to meet at that location having completed phase I of our phase II building plan. We met first however, in Oakwood Elementary School from March 15, 1973 through August 19, 1973.
