Bible Way Church of Atlas Road
Elizabeth “Mother” Simmons, Andrew C. Jackson, and a small group of supporters founded and organized this church in 1963. The first building, known as the “Little Red Church,” burned and services were briefly held at Atlas Road Elementary School. The newly rebuilt sanctuary was rededicated in 1967 as Bible Way Church. Jackson served as its first pastor. Nearly 10,000 persons are members of the Bible Way Church.
