HISTORY

 

On Sunday August 5, 2007 Pastor Arthur C. Blatch, III and eighteen members of the newly formed Christian Life Center of Titusville stepped out on faith and begin to fulfill the vision and mandate that was given to them by God. We believe our call from God was to establish the Kingdom of God and the restoration and advancement of our communities, build and strengthen families: spiritually, mentally, morally, economically and educationally for generations to come, and to accomplishing these goals by uniting with the body of Christ (of all denominations) everywhere in the great commission; go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, for the glory of God!
