Ecclesia Christian Fellowship

Ecclesia Christian Fellowship began in February 1991 as a Bible study group. Our study centered on biblical events and the "End Times." Our group began to follow God's mandate for this ministry to do all things "decently and in order" (1 Corinthians 14:40). In March, we began to meet with our Board of Directors on Wednesday nights at the "SMART" offices in Rancho Cucamonga, California. We applied for our Corporate Non-profit Tax exempt status with the State of California and the Federal Government. During this time, we continued to meet as a Bible study group on Sunday mornings. Our core group began with approximately 15 people and grew to an average attendance of 25-30 each week. 

On May 13, 1991, we accomplished our goal and received our Non-profit Tax exempt status. At that time, we began calling ourselves a church and started having official worship services. Prior to our tax exempt status we received no offerings. We asked those of our group to contribute to help pay for our application for tax exemption and committed to pay them back when we were approved. After approval, all except one asked that their contributions be converted to tithes. The one we reimbursed in full.

We continued to hold worship services at the "SMART" facility until the first Sunday in August. On August 4, 1991, we moved to the 16th Street Seventh Day Adventist Church, where we experienced unbelievable growth and blessings. The first Sunday's attendance was over 200 people. God continued to unveil His vision to us!

On September 5, 1993, God moved in a miraculous way and provided for us our own church facility. God used a small group of 181 families to accomplish what man thought was impossible: 3.6 acres of land, 1000-seat sanctuary, office space, classroom space, a fellowship hall with full commercial kitchen, nursery, youth house, and more. 

Soon after we moved to Date Street, God moved again to provide us with tables, chairs, office furniture and equipment. A wholesale computer dealer donated five computers that began our computer lab. One of our members learned that General Dynamics in Pomona was closing and through her contacts we received two flat-bed trucks full of needed office supplies and equipment. Through our prayer walks, God gave us favor in the Date Street Community and our congregation continued to grow.

Ecclesia is unique and unusual in its "Ministry Vision." This history represents the tangible result of what GOD has done since we began this walk of faith. Those in ministry here realize they are involved in a ministry that has been around for only twenty years. Yet, we believe that we "have not seen anything, yet!"

God has done great things for us! God keeps doing great things for us!! Yet, God has great things in store for us.
