RESURRECTION & NEW LIFE FELLOWSHIP, with the support of the Evangelical Christian Alliance, opened it’s doors at 12112 Cardigan Ave, on February 6, 1994, then the home of our pastor and founder. After many hours, even years of praying, studying the Word, believing the Word, confessing the Word, and acting on the Truth of the Word, even meeting in homes, The Lord has made room for us here at 7569 East Industrial Ave. It is from here, we now believe that we will grow numerically and spiritually,

And/or participate in any other legal function deemed necessary.
