 Introduction

In 1975, three families began to hold services by rotation in Philadelphia.  In 1982, assisted by the personnel of Elizabeth Church, the members rented a chapel to hold  Sabbath worship twice a month.  At this juncture, a House of Prayer was established under the auspices of Elizabeth Church.  Later, God moved several overseas students from Taiwan to actively participate in the holy works.  Thenceforth, Philadelphia had regular Sabbath service.  In the year 1990, Philadelphia House of Prayer became a member of the General Assembly. 

In 1991, the members found a chapel priced at $200,000.  But the notion to purchase this chapel was dropped because of short of funds.  The members prayed even more fervently than before for this matter.  Just half a year later, the gracious Lord prepared an ideal chapel for them.  This chapel was priced at $500,000 in the beginning.  The price far exceeded the members' financial capability. However, through incessant prayers, fasting and generous contributions, the chapel was finally purchased at the price of $400,000.  What is more, God provided a surplus for the Church to spend on refurbishing.  God indeed works miraculously. 
In 1993 the House of Prayer was converted to a Church.  The chapel was dedicated to God on August 29, 1993. .
