Welcome to Gospel Spreading Church

We are a community who firmly believes in God's word. Come journey with us.

In August 2019, we will be celebrating our Centennial Anniversary. We are so thankful to God, our Heavenly Father, for allowing us and empowering us to labor for Him for almost 100 years. Our God has truly been faithful to us throughout these years.

Through God’s providence and grace, He raised up Elder Lightfoot Solomon Michaux and his wife Mary Eliza to be the founders of our church organization in 1919. Elder Michaux established our first church in Newport News, VA on November 22, 1919. One songwriter composed, “Through many dangers, toils and snares [we] have already come. ‘Tis grace that brought us safe thus far and grace will lead us home.”

God has blessed us for almost 100 years to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Thousands of men, women and children have given their lives to Christ through this ministry.  The Gospel Spreading Church of God is not dormant nor asleep, but we are alive and well, to the glory of God.  As we go through the year of 2019, we’re going to trust God to lead us to and through unchartered territory and to continue to spread the good news about Jesus Christ. If we become discouraged, we will look up to God and back over our past and remember how God has graciously blessed us and then move forward. We know that God is with us daily. With God, nothing is impossible!

Thank you for visiting our website.

Summer Corporate Fast

July 12, 2019 7:00 pm

Fasting is a spiritual discipline believers use to draw closer to God. Corporately, we fast and pray four times a year for a 10-day period. Fasting strengthens our faith, provides focus, and equips us with power to overcome temptation. St. Matthew 17:20-21 tells us, “somethings only come through fasting and prayer”. If you need direction, clarity, a release, a refreshing, a breakthrough, or simply need God to move on your behalf, we invite you to join us as we seek God corporately and personally.
