We believe in the Pentecostal experience and adhere to the Apostolic Doctrine as taught by Jesus Christ himself and expounded upon by the apostles. (Acts 1:1 - 2:47)
Our ministry is Holistic, which is to say we minister to the whole man, body, mind and spirit.
To teach, train, equip and empower the body of Christ to live the abundant life as we await His eminent return of the Church.
Evening Light Church of Christ began in May 2003, in the family room of the pastors’ home. With GOD on our side, the help of Minister Wm. Craig, a telephone, boom box and headset we had a full teleconferencing service. Souls from various parts of the country would dial in to hear the Word of God. People reported being healed, saved, and delivered from the bondage of sin.
The Lord showed us his favor. Upon asking Pastor Charles Galbreath of Bowie New Life Assembly, if we could use their facilities for afternoon service they readily agreed.
With the blessing of his pastor, Bishop Alphonzo D. Brooks, Elder Pettus and his wife Doretha left the Mother Church on September 28, 2003 and began holding 3:00 P.M. Sunday services.
After two years, the Lord blessed us to purchase 5.72 acres in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. We began conducting morning worship and afternoon services in the tent. Souls continue to be saved, healed, and delivered from the bondage of sin.
In 2009 we began our bi-monthly radio and worldwide web broadcast "Promises from the WORD" on WYCB 1340.
In 2013 we moved into a temporary location where we shared space with True Freedom Ministries, pastored by Pastor's Ken and Lanie Alston.
In October 2016 we purchased a new and larger tent, and have resumed services on the church property.
We have contracted with David Edge, AIA Architect and Designterra to produce the necessary construction and infrastructure drawings ready for Prince George's County building permits. We are looking forward to building the church facility which will house a 400 seat sanctuary, expanding the Evening Light Trucker's Ministry, after care student classrooms, senior citizens programs, offices, and meeting hall.
"And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be damned.And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
