Our Story

In the early 1900s, the Pentecostal revival touched a small local church known as the “Baltimore Branch of the Christian and Missionary Alliance.” Pastor Edward Staudt developed an interest in the Pentecostal movement and soon realized what he had been missing. After receiving the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, he began teaching his congregation about this Biblical experience. On June 4, 1923, they formed a new church called the “Full Gospel Church of Baltimore” and met on North Fulton Avenue in West Baltimore. In time, the growing congregation built a new brick church in Baltimore on the corner of Saratoga and Monroe.
