The Bible-Based Christ Centered Pentecostal church was officially opened Saturday at the ribbon cutting ceremony performed by Village of Liberty Code Enforcement Officer Pam Winters assisted by Pastor Kathie Ienuso.
The new church now has a sanctuary that will seat almost 100, a room for youth ministry and studies, a soup kitchen, the food pantry (Joseph's Storehouse, outreaches to the Jewish, Gentile and Youth communities and additional church ministries that are on the planning board.
