Church History

The Word of God Christian Ministries Church began in 1993 by the leading of the Holy Spirit. The founder and Senior Pastor, Michael J. Gray along with his wife Lisa Gray and daughter Tiffany, began this work on a Wednesday Night in their living room at Crystal River Drive, Riverdale Ga.

Shortly after, they renovated their one-car garage to have worship service. This is where the first worship service was held on October 24th 1993.

The church moved from the house to an office building in 1994, located at 154 Valley Hill Road, Riverdale, Georgia. In 1997, the church moved to The Day’s Inn Meeting Room, located on Old Dixie Highway, Forest Park, Georgia. In April of 2000, the church was able to purchase a 10-acre wooded lot with a ranch located at 1207 McDonough Road, Hampton, Georgia.

God has remained faithful. Pastor Gray has shown monumental courage as well as bold and innovative leadership in fostering programs and ministries which are manifesting the Vision of The Word of God Christian Ministries Church. In 2003 The Word of God Christian Ministries Church Property was rezoned for Church use. In August of 2005 we completed our 20,000 square ft. sanctuary with a gym; located at 1207 McDonough Road in Hampton, GA.

The Vision is yet moving forward by the Holy Spirit! God is truly blessing The Word Of God Christian Ministries Church!
