Sunday, January 7, 2007, five individuals gathered in the home of Apostle Cosby to worship and In the Spirit Christian Church (ITSCC) was birth. A lesson from Isaiah 61:1-3 was taught, communion shared. From that point forward, every first Sunday in January is celebrated as, Formation Sunday for the church.
Services were quickly moved from Rev. Cosby's home to the library. until they were able to lease their first church building in June 2007, located at 2001 North Atlanta Ave., Tulsa, Oklahoma.
While at that location, the Christian Church in Oklahoma visited presented the congregation its Covenant of Formation document and it was official; In the Spirit Christian Church was a recognized congregation in formation.
The worshiping community grew from 25 founding members to over 100 members with a year. We developed Spirit Praise, a praise team, and Ruah (Spirit), an inspirational dance group. Additionally, the ministry provided various community outreach and an under care ministries, which included weekly correspondence, support, and care to incarcerated individuals. The worshipping community quickly became a viable ministry in the Tulsa area.
