Ministry Questions & Answers

When was the Church established?

The church was established in 1984 by Bishop James E. Parris, Sr. and Isabelle Parris (wife).


What is the Vision of the Church?

The vision of the Church is to minister to the whole man with a spirit of excellence. Every male and female is made up of three components- the spiritual man, physical man and social man. The spiritual man consists of the soul and inner spirit, the physical man consists of the body and mind, and the social man consists of a person’s living environment (education, finances, housing, productivity, etc). The Bible says a man should prosper and be in good health even as his soul prospers. We encourage men and women to prosper in each component of their lives.

The church is located in the heart of the city with the people of the city in it’s heart. We offer hope and help to those in need!
