Welcome to the
Beulah Church Of God 7th Day
On August 8, 1998, with 33 perspective members and well-wishers the Beulah Church of God Seventh Day Evangelical was formed at 1280 Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn NY.
Our first Sabbath school came to life with superintendent Bro David Palmer and Sis Wendy Meikle as secretary. The lesson was taught by Bro Joseph Whyte and the first sermon was delivered by Pastor Rainford Palmer and from that first Sabbath, we never looked back. On our second Sabbath, Pastor Goffe from Jamaica visited and preached the very text used in the first message (Joshua 5:1-15) indicating that Yahweh was up to do something big among us.
The church grew numerically by transfer, biological and conversion. As a result of the rapid growth and inadequate worship space we began our search for a new worship space. In June 2002 we closed the deal on this property at 1405 Utica Avenue and after excessive repairs and remodeling, we moved in March 28, 2003. Where will we be another five (5) or ten (10) years from today? Where will our young people and leaders take us? What is our mission and vision for the future? Is there a plan for future growth and how will we ascertain growth in this hostile climate? Can the church be culturally relevant and spiritually engaged in the society where the image of Christ is being stumped on and the wrong doers are cheered on by leading professors of colleges?
The church must not lose its identity in a changing world filled with hatred for everything moral and virtuous. The church must stand for justice and truth. What is justice? Justice is a set of standards known to society. Such standards are in place to guide humanity in the way of God’s divine standard. Justice calls for uprightness in one’s social, economic and spiritual life both private and public.
