About Us

 
We are glad you have found us!
 
On August 3, 1952, our first service was held in the Bellwood Dance Hall on Jefferson Davis Highway. About 25 community members showed up that day. Since that first meeting, the church as blossomed and served the surrounding community  in many various ways. 
 
Our current location is the at center of four diverse neighborhoods on the border of Richmond City and Chesterfield County. We strive to go "Beyond These Walls" and Reach out to those in our community and beyond.
