THE POOL OF BETHESDA CHURCH OF THE LIVING GOD CHOIR
Quite the success story I’d say! Oh, and a great Hammond B3 accompaniment!
On October 29, 1923, The House of God, which is the Church of the Living God, the Pillar and Ground of Truth Without Controversy, was incorporated in Columbus, Ohio under Bishop George F. Giles, Pastor and State Bishop.
In 1962, under the direction of then Assistant Pastor, Rev. Beulah M. White, the church obtained a “white” house at 593 Fairwood Avenue.
Under the leadership of Elder Joseph White, the church was renamed “The Pool of Bethesda” Church of the Living God in 1972 and built the first new building in the organization in Columbus, Ohio at the same location (593 Fairwood Avenue).
Because the congregation had grown beyond the capacity of the new church, it was necessary to plan for and take action to have a new church built. In June 1977, the church moved into its second new facility it had built at 2600 McCutcheon Road, Columbus, Ohio 43219.
Within two years the church outgrew the educational classrooms and increased the size of the facility to almost double its original dimensions.
In 1979, Pastor Joseph White, under the direction of the Lord and with a strong desire to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, began an expansion program into other cities and neighboring states. A number of churches were started in Columbus, Warren, Urbana, Cleveland and Springfield, Ohio as ministers under his leadership and teaching grew out of the Pool of Bethesda Church of the Living God.
