The History of the Church
Our journey began September 1993 when Apostle Chris Williams obeyed the voice of the Lord and birthed "New Obedient Generation Ministries" in his home. They began NOGM with just five family members worshiping in the family room and then expanded to the basement of their home. During this season God gave Apostle Chris a mandate to prepare men and women to be grounded in the Word of God. A revelation was given by God to Apostle Chris a mission "To Win Souls To Christ".................and our Mission Statement was born.
In 1997 the church relocated to Belmont Avenue in Woodlawn, Maryland where God began to grow the ministry. After a years of renting at this location. God began to put a new vision into the heart and mind of Apostle Chris and directed him to 9016 Liberty Road Randallstown, Maryland in a shopping center development. Through pray and conformation from the reading of God's word
":and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the Lord hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land." (Gen. 26:22). With wisdom, understanding and obedient Apostle Chris change the name of the church to REHOBOTH INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH.
Our Pastor's Apostle Chris and Prophet Cathy Williams continue to seek the lord for fresh revelation and direction. With the heart of entrepreneurship already operating within our pastor's and the ministry experiencing great growth within five years. REHOBOTH INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH (RICC) transitioned from being renters of the church location, to God opening the door to purchase the entire shopping center that housed our church currently. And Under the direction of the Holy Ghost, the church endeavored to transform the old/worn shopping center into a Beautiful Business Center. God has Blessed RICC to oversee 15 different businesses; Day Care with Before and After Care, Hidden Treasure Banquet Hall, Medical Clinic, Nail Salon, 2 Hair Salons, Barber Shop, Plumbing Services, CNA Training Classes, Transportation Service and 2 Churches. The Development of a Community Multi-Purpose Center that will have an auditorium that seat 600 people. Along with a drive thru Coffee & Bagel kiosk on our parking lot is also in the vision and future of RICC.
Today, 24 years later God has clearly made room for us and allow us to be fruitful to the land. We can see that REHOBOTH INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH has proven to be a church on the rise. RICC is a church of the WORD, a church of PRAYER, a church of PRAISE & WORSHIP and a church of HEALING & DELIVERANCE.
