Founded on November 14, 2002 by Pastor Mazon, The Spirit of Truth Ministries began its journey in the work for the Lord. It began with a few dedicated Sisters in Christ and the Pastor and was officially opened in March of 2003. As the Lord laid out the vision, step by step, these dedicated Saints stood together all the way. Standing side by side and arm in arm, everyone forged on to accomplish the work destined. Beginning in the Pastor’s home, holding bible class The Spirit of Truth Ministries has consistently worked on building the church on the Word of God. These dedicated women of God have done everything in decency and in order.
