ABOUT THE CHURCH
Bishop Edward Webb and his wife Sister Marie Webb started The Lord Jesus Church of God (Colorado Springs) in April of 1978 at a residence on West Moreno Street in Colorado Springs Colorado. The original charter is in Kingsport, TN, where Brother Webb was raised and his father and uncle founded The Lord Jesus Church of God.
After three months in this location, a neighbor complained about the loud noise so the church services needed to be moved. In July of 1978 Brother Webb closed off a bay of his “Gulf Service Station” located on Cimmarron and Tejon St., and officiated many wonderful, spirit filled services.
In February 1982, the opportunity to purchase the current location, 84 Sherri Drive arose and through the love and commitment of Brother and Sister Marie Webb and other members of the church they were able to raise a down payment. After only 5 years the loans were paid back through bake sales and making and selling of tamales.
After the passing of Sister Marie (2002) and Brother Webb (2003) their daughter Bishop Chantal Miller stepped into the role of Pastor.
We are 3rd and 4th generation worshipers. The spirit of love for the Lord and for one another carries on and we welcome others to come and experience the joy we share.
