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.

Pastor Patterson was consecrated to the office of Bishop February 25, 2017 to provide covering to a group of Pastors outside the Church of God in Christ.

Bishop Richard Patterson, presently serves in Third Jurisdiction Illinois Church of God in Christ and St. Samuel Temple remains a member church in the jurisdiction as well as the Church of God in Christ, Inc.
