Our Story Our Beginning Gods True Worshippers Church in the Lord Jesus of the Apostles Doctrine was established in 2001. At the time, Pastor Irvin E. Bryant had been a pastor for seven of his 23 years at the True Church of God in Christ in Scottdale, GA. Having a desire to move forward with his ministry, Pastor Bryant and a few determined members had their initial services at the Radisson Hotel in Tucker, GA for less than a year. It was a trying time but we endured it with greater love, patience and understanding. When the membership continued to grow, we moved to a new location on Memorial Drive - a location where we stayed for the course of five years. Our Ministry During those years, Pastor Bryant, Elder Jerry Lucas, Minister Wyman Cook, and Minister Tony Smith continued to preach the Apostles Doctrine as well as the importance of self-denial, faithful service, sound judgment and unconditional love. Minister Tony Smith has since departed to start and pastor The Way of God Church of the Lord Jesus in Dekalb County. In the early days, Minister Smith was instrumental in helping our church find a place to worship a gesture in which we will always recognize and appreciate. Later, Elder Cecil Render was made a minister and ordained an elder due in part to his faithfulness to this ministry. As a church, we have benefited from the operation and acceptance of all the gifts in the ministry, past and present. Our Vision Bishop Bryant has been leading the vision of this ministry which is to lift up a standard for the church, instruct a wide television viewing audience and reach out to nations abroad to preach the word of God. Our ministers are fulfilling that vision by taking on further opportunities to preach to and fellowship with other churches. The bold teaching has been a source of intense discussion for thousands of television viewers throughout Georgia. This doctrine has enlightened many, not to mention the people overseas where Bishop Bryant taught the word of God in the Philippines. With the Lords help, our ministers will be opening more local churches around the United States and affiliating with many other ministries around the world hoping to spread the good news of Gods promise to those who obey his will. Our Members Our members consist of saints who are committed to living according to the word of God. We live spiritually and naturally fulfilling lives as a result of the instruction we receive and apply. We believe that when you are in the midst of us, you will be able to feel the love of God in us. We worship, we rejoice and we cry together. We know each other name by name. For that, we believe we are a blessed group of members within the body of Christ. Our desire is to strengthen the bond of love we have for one another and to continue to work together to help fulfill the vision for this local assembly. Our Blessings Today, the Lord continues to bless His saints individually and the ministry as a whole. Through prayer, as we are delivered from our trials and tribulations, we are witnesses that all things work together for our good and that we must continue to trust in God. In 2007, we will be blessed to move into our new church building in Decatur, Georgia. This gift is evidence of Gods love for us and the confirmation that through his power there is nothing we cannot achieve when we work together in love. We look forward to the future in our new church home because our hope is to grow in number, step out on faith and commit to the service of God in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
