in 1984 under the guidance of the Holy Ghost, All Nations House of Prayer Full Gospel Temple was founded by Elder Garfield Curlin. There were five members who gathered together to have services in the apartment of Elder and Sister Curlin.
The garage of Sister Blaine was renovated in 1985 and the members began to worship in the garage. The membership continued to grow. The Glory of the Lord was powerful in the little garage. People came from near and far, and once they entered the building they had an encounter with God. Although the building was small it housed a mighty anointing.
In April 1991 it was time to move on to the higher ground, the garage was simply not large enough to hold all the souls God had added to the ministry. The anointing followed as God's spirit was manifested powerfully in the services. God saw fit to continually draw souls and add to the church.
After much fasting, laboring, and sacrificing, the vision would tarry no longer. In September 1994, God blessed us to build a sanctuary that seated 350. God continued to add to the church people from Hopkinsville, Ft. Campbell, Russellville, and Clarksville as well as from various other states. In February 1997 a fellowship hall and classrooms were added to the sanctuary. God has spoken prophetically and said All Nations House of Prayer will be a deliverance station for souls, recognized for miracles and healing, and that His spirit would dwell in the sanctuary perpetually. With the addition of radio and television broadcasts, more and more soul has been drawn and added to the ministry.
Because many Sunday services were filled to capacity on a regular basis, God spoke and said it was time to once again broaden our borders. Blueprints were drawn up and a new and larger facility to house a sanctuary to seat 900 people, prayer tower, administrative suites, offices, bookstore, recording studio and nursery was completed and was celebrated during a Dedication Service in October 2004. The anointing upon this ministry is unique and very powerful and God has even greater things in store.
In the near future, we will break ground for our Family Life Center, which will include: a gymnasium, volleyball court, exercise rooms, indoor walking track, indoor swimming pool, a performing arts stage, weight room, his & her saunas, and game room. The outdoor facilities will include a baseball diamond, tennis courts, soccer field, basketball court, and a cafe. The vision includes a K-5 grade school, daycare, apartment complex for senior citizens, and luxury guest quarters.
We are constantly evolving and we know that God has ordained us to revolutionize the great community, city, state, and this world. Eyes have not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. For we serve a mighty God who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think.
