1921 – George Estes – a man from Sachse who was 46 years old at the time, made what was a long trip at that time…. from Sachse to the Coliseum at Fair Park in Dallas to attend a revival conducted by a lady named… Aimee-Semple McPherson. In that meeting, George Estes was miraculously healed of rheumatism in his back and had a lasting encounter with the Holy Spirit.
Brother Eastes brought that experience back to Sachse in the form of cottage prayer meetings that were held in various homes. Several visible miracles, like the healing of lady named Mrs. Day from Tuberculosis, caused the prayer meetings crowds to swell and the growing group of believers began to think about starting a church.

It began after the stock market crash of October 1929, which sent Wall Street into a panic and wiped out millions of investors.

By 1933, when the Great Depression reached its lowest point, some 15 million Americans were unemployed and nearly half the country’s banks had failed.
