North Cities has a rich history of ministry in the Dallas area. It all began in the summer of 1941, when Rev. J. D. Drain and his wife, Myrtle, traveled to Garland, Texas, to hold a series of meetings. After preaching for two weeks on a vacant lot, Rev. Drain felt the call to stay and establish a church. They purchased the lot and started working to build a building. In April of 1944, the first crowd gathered in the new building at 521 West Avenue E.
In the late 1940′s, Evangelist C. P. Kilgore arrived in Garland to preach a revival for the church. During this revival, the Lord gloriously blessed and 40 souls were filled with the Holy Ghost and baptized in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ. The congregation grew and plans were made to expand. In 1956, a new sanctuary was built. In 1960, a fellowship hall and Sunday school building were added.
In 1990, Rev. D. G. Hargrove was elected as Pastor. The church continued to grow and plans were made to relocate. Land was purchased at 502 Belt Line Road, and work began on constructing a new house of worship. The first service was held in the new building in November of 1997.
The Lord continued to bless the church at their new location. With a clear vision for evangelism and an emphasis on the supernatural move of the Holy Ghost, the church steadily grew. In 2002, the sanctuary was expanded in order to accommodate the continued growth. Since that time, the congregation has acquired additional acreage on Belt Line Road, an Annex facility on Kingsbridge, and has begun a multi-phase expansion project that will continue to serve the needs of the growing church family.
