Challenge of Faith was established on January 1,1984 under the leadership of Elder Robert Jessie Sr.,with his wife, family members and two children from the neighborhood, in the den of their home. The first service was Tuesday Night Bible Band. The Lord blessed and we continued to have service in the Pastor's den for approximately one month. We moved in a church building on Tamarind in Compton, where we resided for approximately three weeks. The Lord continued to pour out his blessings and that made the devil mad. We were put out and had to go back to the Pastor's home. While at the Pastor's home, the Lord sent two brothers, the late Elder English and Brother Conners to worship with us. The Lord blessed, and after being in the den for another month, we moved into the building where we are today. We purchased the property in 1988 and in 1989 we began to remodel. In 1991 we purchased the property next door, which is the annex. To this day the Lord has continually blessed and added souls to the church such as should be saved. In August 1997, we were blessed to pay off the mortgage on the church and in July of 1999 we were able to purchase two parking lots. In 2004 we began the renovation and enlargement of the church. This remodeing project would combine the annex to the main edifice and add additional classrooms and a dining area. There were many hills and mountains since the renovation began in August of 2005. An out of control vehicle crashed into the church and caused great damage. But the Lord provided refuge by way of the Greater Peace MBC pastored by Reverend Alton Lee. But despite the set backs, just under a year later on July 1, 2006, we returned to a beautiful and glorious sanctuary. Now with the help of the Lord we look forward to the many societal challenges that plaque mankind. Everyday our chief endeavor is to introduce as many people, regardless of race, color, or gender to a living Savior that can heal the injured soul. We endeavor to put in place a viable outreach ministry. Also youth and young adult ministries that offer spiritual guidance and educational opportunities as well. We thank God for where he has brought us from for "This is the Lord's Doing and it is Marvelous in our Eyes" If you need a church home or perhaps just in town visiting, please come by and attend one of our Sunday or mid-week services. The 3rd Sunday night is our Youth Night where God moves mightly. We believe in giving God the glory at all times, and letting the Spirit of God have his way. 2010 Theme: "Seeking the Fullness of God" Ephesians 3:14-21
