Services were quickly moved from Rev. Cosby's home to the library. until they were able to lease their first church building in June 2007, located at 2001 North Atlanta Ave., Tulsa, Oklahoma.
While at that location, the Christian Church in Oklahoma visited presented the congregation its Covenant of Formation document and it was official; In the Spirit Christian Church was a recognized congregation in formation.
The worshiping community grew from 25 founding members to over 100 members with a year. We developed Spirit Praise, a praise team, and Ruah (Spirit), an inspirational dance group. Additionally, the ministry provided various community outreach and an under care ministries, which included weekly correspondence, support, and care to incarcerated individuals. The worshipping community quickly became a viable ministry in the Tulsa area.
After a year of forming Rev. Cosby's ordination through the Azusa Fellowship was affirmed by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Oklahoma. Subsequently, on April 26, 2008, during the Christian Church in Oklahoma Regional Assembly, In the Spirit Christian Church was recognized as a chartered congregation and given its Church Charter.
The church continued to move forward.
We moved to 409 South Pittsburg, (pictured left) and continued to grow. We enjoyed an eclectic worship experience, inclusive of anointed preaching and teaching, spirited praise and worship, and various ministries from infants to the chronologically gifted (seniors).
Experience In The Spirit!
After two years, we moved to our permanent home, at 1020 South Garnett, Tulsa, Oklahoma. With plenty of room for expansion.
Over the years, In The Spirit has hosted various church events and activities including Marriage Enrichment Seminars, Men’s and Women's Retreats, vacation bible school, and camps for kids.
