History of the Church
In the year of our Lord, 2002, God began calling his servant, Reverend Anthony Wright, Sr., stepped out along with his wife Shirley Wright, and his children Danielle, Anthony, and Aaron. They prayed to the Lord asking for help in the vineyard and HE answered.
We honor others with thanks and appreciation namely; Elder Ronald Bynum, Deacons Levette Bynum and Laverne Smith for their spiritual support, direction, advise and prayers, and the Gospel.
Our pastor, the Reverend Dr. Anthony Wright, Sr., continued to trust in God as he developed the basic ministries necessary to build the church from the simple but effective model of Jesus Christ.
In 2003, with membership increasing the church moved from Pastor Wright’s home to John Carroll Elementary School in Landover, Maryland. God continued to move by His Spirit and we were able to move to our current location at 3012 Kaverton Road, District Heights, Maryland. Pastor Wright continues the great commission of our Lord and Savior, baptizing members in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
As we journey into our 15th year, GOD continues to shower HIS many blessings on this branch of Zion, spiritually, physically, and financially. We have been blessed since 2002, By The Spirit Ministries Christian Church and the community will never be the same. As our family keeps growing, we continually to look for additional ways to expand.
