PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW
In 1973, God sent us to 8749 S. State Street, in Chicago. He promised us the surrounding land. In 1994 we purchased the lots to the south and true to His word we purchased the property to the north at the close of 2016.
The church presently owns 1/2 block of property on a major street, overlooking a major thoroughfare (Dan Ryan Expressway).
To God Be the Glory....
Congratulations to our Pastor who established The Elect of God Fellowship of Churches, Inc.
