Who we are

May 7, 1978 our first official worship service was held; Pastor James Carter; Deacons included Robert L. McGhee, Sammie Young, Jr., James Herron, Lee O. Lewis, Robert L. Kendrick, James R. Dixon, John Whittlesey, Willie B. King and Henry Sampson and Laura price as Secretary/Clerk. During our first service ninety-four Christians joined our congregation including two converts for baptism.

September 8, 1978, our church was incorporated by the State of Georgia. We purchased the old Branton Woods Day Care Center. The second Sunday in December 1978 we moved into our first official church home.

May 1, 1980 we purchased the joining land lots west of our original property. December 24, 1989, we were blessed to move into our present Sanctuary. In August the ajoining lots East and Northwest of our original property were purchased; the future homes of our Family Life Center!

This decade has brought us many challenges one of those being the passing of our beloved Pastor and founder, the Reverend Dr. James Harold Carter on Sunday, December 5, 2010. April 2011 through November 2013, the Reverend Rudolph C. Allen Sr. became our pastor. Under his guidance we re-educated ourselves to the Youth Ministry and the Women of Canaan! The Spiritual Expression Ministry, Culinary ministry and Men Ministry also came to life under Pastor Allen, Sr. guidance.

The power of Christian prayer Let no darkness overtake me
Visit, I beseech thee, O Lord, this habitation with thy mercy, and me with thy grace and salvation. Let thy holy angels pitch their tents round about and dwell here, that no illusion of the night may abuse me, the spirits of darkness may not come near to hurt me, no evil or sad accident oppress me; and let the eternal Spirit of the Father dwell in my soul and body, filling every corner of my heart with light and grace. Let no deed of darkness overtake me; and let thy blessing, most blessed God, be upon me for ever, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
