CHURCH HISTORY


The Body of Christ Church International, U.S.A. was organized in 1983 as The Body of Christ Christian Church, Inc., for the purpose of providing religious services and ministering to the general public. The charter membership consisted of fifty persons. The church presently operates from a worship and administrative facility in College Park, Georgia.

The Body of Christ Church International, U.S.A. began as a small Bible Study in 1980. At that time, the church was named "The Body of Christ Bible Study and Teaching Center." Its Tuesday evening meetings were held at the Landmark West Boarding Home on Bankhead Highway in northwest Atlanta.

The church’s message was carried to the public via evangelism and radio broadcast. It grew and in October of 1982, relocated to a facility in East Point, Georgia. A Friday evening Bible Study was added along with a Sunday morning service. The church dedicated its new facility in June of 1983 and, shortly thereafter, instituted New Members Classes and developed a number of Inreach Ministries.

In the summer of 1985, the church obtained new office facilities in a progressive office park in College Park, Georgia. In the same year, the church purchased prime acreage for a future church site in College Park.

In the meantime, the church continued to grow. Not able to accommodate those who desired to attend Sunday morning services, it added a 10:30 a.m. service to its 8:00 a.m. service. Despite this addition, the church was compelled to move to larger facilities in Fayetteville, Georgia in 1987. The new facility allowed space for more classrooms, for a new bookstore, for Nursery facilities and for other church purposes.

This high rate of growth continued. In 1991, a weekly Tuesday morning Bible Study Service was added. After purchasing additional acreage, the church broke ground to begin construction on its 83-acre campus site in March of 1996. On May 26, 2002, the church occupied Phase I of its new site, consisting of a new Family Life Center, at its current location, 3650 Flat Shoals Road in College Park, Georgia. With the new location came a new name, The Body of Christ Church International, U.S.A.

The Family Life Center will temporarily house the worship services until the completion of Phase II, a Grand Sanctuary. Phase III will accomplish a comprehensive Christian Education Campus providing educational opportunities from pre-school through college prep.

On December 8, 2005, the ministry grew to open its second location, in Alpharetta, Georgia - The Body of Christ Church International, U.S.A. NORTH! The Body of Christ Church International, U.S.A. is now one church in two locations (College Park, Georgia and Alpharetta, Georgia)!
