History of the Property
The property located at 2116 Cadillac holds value and history with our organization as it was the first church building purchased by the founder of FACE, Bishop Thomas L. Johnson in 1975. Upon purchasing the building, there was no running water, no heating system, and sections of the church had suffered damage from fire; the church had been severely vandalized. With a vision in mind and hearts of determination, several months later after taking ownership with only seven members at the infancy of our ministry, the once discarded and disgraced building was restored to a beautiful sanctuary. The diamond in the rough had become a beacon of hope at 2116 Cadillac. Recently, we were given the opportunity to reclaim this property and save the property from being demolished. It is our goal to restore this building to serve as a place of hope within the community. Our goal is to build a stronger community, restore hope and provide help to those in need.
