The Rev. Greg and Julie Davis held theirfirst service on Jan. 17, 1993, at the River Heights Golf Course Clubhouse, with four people in attendance. As the congregation began to grow, they moved into the basement of the Planwealth Royal Alliance building in the spring of 1993.

Services were held in the Planwealth building until 1998, when the congregation was able to move into a new facility at 1120 S. Seventh St., DeKalb, where weekly services are held. God has blessed the congregation in many areas, and an expectation of many more years of growth and ministeringto the DeKalb community are on the horizon.
