East Phoenix Church of God organized in 1938. The first church building was at 20th Street and Monroe. The church moved to it's second location at 21st Street and Polk in 1955 or 1956.
Around 1980, the Red Mountain Freeway took the property at 21st Street and Polk, and the church relocated again.
The last move for the church was to it's current location. We are still here for the glory of God. Helping souls find Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour.
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
