Stone Temple Church of God in Christ Assembled was founded in 1969 by a woman named Addie Pitts. Ms. Pitts was a lover of Christ and had a passion for serving her community. She started the ministry out of the back of her home, serving lunches to school aged children. The ministry soon developed and several years later a church was built on the 57th block of Racine where it remains today.

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible written Word of God.

We believe that there is only One God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and, God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ, at His return.

We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Ghost is absolutely essential for personal salvation.

We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer.

We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian isenabled to live a holy and separated life in the present world.
