With a mission and a vision to win souls for the Lord, I, Elder Joseph B. Davis, Sr., my wife, Debra, our three children (Joseph Jr., Tarek and Ena) and niece (Monica Pritchett) began our work on Sunday, May 1, 1994, with the opening of Way of Truth and Life Church of God in Christ. We founded the Church on the scripture as recorded in John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, 'I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me'."
The vision for this church began while I was attending classes in 1990 at The Charles Harrison Mason System of Bible Colleges in Baltimore, Maryland. While I was taking a course in Church Administration, the instructor had the class prepare a structure of the church and asked us to name our church and outline several programs including education, other ministries and funding. The Lord spoke to me and said, "I am the way, the truth and the life." The Lord spoke to me again on October 11, 1992, confirming the name of the church He had given me earlier. The Lord was preparing us for a work and the name of the church would be "Way of Truth and Life." I continued in prayer and sought the Lord for guidance. In 1994, the Lord told us it was time to start a work for Him and that He would equip us for what lay ahead.
Thus, we are pleased to tell you as according to the Word of God "the Lord has added" to His church. We expect with God's help and guidance that the membership will continue to grow. God is still blessing and we are still progressing in the work of the Lord.
