In 1936 a group of 15 met in the home of Paul Stephens for free Pentecostal worship to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This dedicated group of pioneers sought the will of God and organized the first Cartersville Church of God. Later in 1940 as the congregation grew, the people moved into their first church building on Moon Street. Continued growth led the people to build a block church on Elizabeth Street where they continued to worship until 1973. At that time they built an even larger facility on Elizabeth Street where the membership grew from 75 to 584 in just seven years.

Old Mill Rd Church of God

On Easter Sunday, 1980, the congregation moved to a new sanctuary with educational facilities on Old Mill Road. A 36,000 square foot Family Life Center was completed in 1988. (See photo on left)

Cartersville Childcare, which began in the educational facilities of the main church building in 1990, quickly reached full capacity that demanded a separate facility on the Church of God campus. The grand opening of the present state-of-the-art child care center took place in March of 1994.

Excel Christian Academy opened its doors in the fall of 1993. With S.A.C.S. accreditation, current enrollment is near 400 students in grades Kindergarten through 12th.

With membership topping 2500 and overwhelming growth in every area on campus, the church congregation made the decision in 1995 to purchase 186 acres for the purpose of relocating the church and all of her ministries.

Liberty Square, as the new development is called, is located on north Hwy. 411 and is bordered by Cline-Smith Road on the east.

The Church at Liberty Square

In January 2003, the church family moved to the new facilities at Liberty Square. A new church needed a new name, so the Cartersville Church of God became The Church at Liberty Square.

Watch Commemorative Video, Celebrating 25 Years of His-story, and learn more about The Church at Liberty Square. It is the goal of the church to minister to people of every race and creed from the cradle to the grave.
