Church History

International Central Gospel Church, Fulfillment Temple, had its first public worship service on February 9th 2003 at a meeting room in the Days Inn Hotel located on 6721 Commerce Street in Springfield, Virginia. The Church met with an initial membership of ten people. Since then, God has been faithful and the Church is experiencing a steady and remarkable growth.

The conference room at the Days Inn Hotel became too small so the Church relocated on September 7, 2003 to the Forestdale Elementary School, which is less than 2 miles from Days Inn.

On January 25, 2004, the Church again moved to 5502 Port Royal Road. The facility houses the main sanctuary, the children worship center, the youth worship center, and the administrative offices.

This local assembly is an offshoot of the International Central Gospel Church with its headquarters in Ghana, West Africa. The vision of ICGC or Central as many affectionately call it, was laid on the heart of the Founder and General Overseer, Dr. Mensa Otabil. When he heard the directive of the Holy Spirit to plant model New Testament Churches, he immediately responded to the Holy Spirit's leading and ICGC was first birthed in the capital of Ghana.

Under Dr. Otabil's leadership, branches of ICGC have sprung up across the continent of Africa, Europe and North America. In a nutshell, we are fulfilling Christ's commission for us to evangelize the world and produce disciples for Him.

As an extension of ICGC's primary purpose to "raise leaders, shape visions, and influence society through Christ," Fulfillment Temple is committed to making people's lives better by empowering them through the teaching of the Word to live fulfilled lives. Our ministry philosophies are "practical Christianity, human dignity, and excellence."

Fulfillment Temple is passionate about missions and church planting, and in the past 3 years alone have been instrumental in the planting of 8 additional branches of ICGC across America.
