The church was founded and organized in 1963 by Elizabeth “Mother” Simmons, Andrew C. Jackson and 11 other adults and their children. The first church was called “the Little Red Church.” In 1966, the first church burned and services had to be held in Atlas Road Elementary School. Jackson became the first pastor and eventually, the bishop. Bible Way was dedicated in 1967. The church has grown to more than 10,000 members.
