Although our Pastors, Drs. John & Kisia Coleman had been serving in ministry for almost 20 years, with permission from their pastor they launched a weekly Bible Study on May 14, 2005. Months later, with a whole lot of faith the church was birthed and had its official grand opening celebration on Sunday, January 8, 2006. The vision of this Word-based Christian church is for all those that commit to the fellowship of its assembly be empowered so that:
We believe that this is not just a time for change but it is "the time" for change. The dance has begun. The party is happening and the people are ready. We are determined that Jesus will be celebrated at this party. He will get the last dance and those who see and hear will clap for joy as the nations bow to a new sound and reverence a new way of life. - A life of purpose! A life of abundance! A life of joy!
No other generation has been privileged to host such a party. We are honored with this responsibility and welcome you to join us as we celebrate Jesus. Preach for Him! Teach for Him! Live for Him! Thank you for visiting our site today and please come again!
Dr. John D. Coleman is declaring the Word of the Lord during this time; a time in which he has labeled “the changing of the guards.” He was called by God at the age of 17 and was licensed and ordained at the age of 19 under the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, (P.A.W.). Dr. John has an AA Degree in Business Management from Phillips College; a Bachelor of Arts in Ministry with an Emphasis on Biblical Studies, a Master of Arts in Christian Education and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Ministry from Midwest Christian College & Seminary.
Dr. John has a mandate to bring a realization to the body of Christ that it is God’s desire for His people to establish a relationship with Him instead of a “religion-ship.” He is playing a pivotal part in reaching this generation and equipping them to activate the gifts within them. A cloud of testimonies including financial and healing miracles have manifested as a result of his ministry.
His most recent book The Chambers of Chenaniah - 12 Foundational Truths to Praise & Worship is proving to be a hit among true worshipers as well as worship teams throughout the body of Christ. His first book, Power Points to Prosperous Living, has a popular point: “There are two types of people that come in your life;those that inspire you and those that expire you.”
He has traveled and preached locally, nationally and internationally yet he is committed to his family and church, Kingdom Church Int’l. North and South., a non-denominational, charismatic assembly in which he and his wife are both founders and pastors in the south suburbs of Chicago as well as the inner city. Their vision for both of these locations is to empower God’s people for Kingdom living and Kingdom advancement in the earth.
