ABOUT JESUS HOUSE CLEVELAND
Jesus House Cleveland (JHC), a life-filled, Bible believing and teaching church, is a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
The global vision of RCCG is to have a church in every city of the world, five to thirty minutes’ drive from each other. This vision is borne out of the desire to reach everyone with the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ, and disciple them to live victoriously for Him on earth as we get ready for eternity with God in heaven.
RCCG is structured along geographical lines. Jesus House Cleveland is part of the North American convention, also known as RCCGNA. This convention includes all of North America and the Caribbean. There are currently more seven hundred parishes in RCCGNA. The central office is located in Dallas, Texas.
Under the leadership of the Holy Spirit, Pastors Francis and Bunor Tella began a weekly house fellowship (Bible study) group in their apartment with a membership of thirteen people, including children and adults. This blossomed into Jesus House Cleveland with the inaugural service on August 4th, 2002 at the Hampton Inn on Euclid Avenue, Wickliffe. Weekly services continued at this location until November 2003 when the church began to lease parts of its current location.
Over the past years, Jesus House Cleveland has consistently continued to grow as we pursue our vision of being a house for all people, bringing hope to the downcast, comfort to those who hurt, strength to the weak, demonstrating God’s love and power, and upholding His standards of righteousness.
At JHC, we simply summarize our mission as: “Changing lives, shaping destinies.”
