On April 1, 1988, a group of Christians who had a strong desire to study God’s Word, met to call L.W. Bolton, Jr. as the overseer of the group.
During this pivotal point in the church’s history, members that remained had a common goal—to remain faithful in their love and pursuit of Christ by keeping the church doors open.
On July 16, 1995, Anthony Payton, Pastor/Teacher was called to lead this determined flock to a “New Level” in Jesus. His initial sermon was delivered on July 30, 1995. After a unanimous vote, he became Pastor of the church. Since his installation in 1995, Pastor Payton has allowed God to use him to transform Come As You Are Community Church into a cutting-edge global ministry.
2001, Greater Come As You Are Missionary Baptist Church was renamed Come As You Are Community Church.
