Pastor Hart came to Detroit in 1954 for a tent revival but stayed to found the Liberty Temple Worship Center. This humble beginning was the foundation for building the ministry. The church building is a former theater and was purchased in 1956. The fellowship hall building was built by Liberty Temple Worship Center in 1972. The annex building was added in 1984.
The current church campus includes three buildings totally up to 36,400 square feet in three buildings. The Liberty Temple Worship Center has a sanctuary that seats over 900. The television ministry allowed the church to reach additional thousands. It is Liberty’s hope that a new congregation will be able to build upon this foundation and continue god’s work in the neighborhood.
Detroit (French for strait) was founded as a French outpost 1701 by Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac. The initial settlement of Fort Pontchartrain occupied an area of approximately one acre. The French ruled the area until 1760, and then the British until 1796 when the Americans took over as a result of Jay’s Treaty. The city was incorporated in 1815 and expanded over the years until today’s boundaries were established in 1926.Area 138.70 square milesPopulation 951,270 (2000 census)Dwelling Units 410,027 (2001 SEMCOG)Household Income $18,742 (1990 Census in 1989 Dollars)Per Capita Income $6,766 (1990 Census in 1989 Dollars)Employment 383,716 (1995 SEMCOG data)Median Housing Value $25,300 (1990 Census in 1989 Dollars)Altitude 581 feet (measured at the Detroit River) Detroit is Largest City in the State Anchors the seventh largest metropolitan area in the Nation Largest Private Employers Daimler Chrysler General Motors Corporation Henry Ford Health System Comerica Detroit Medical Center American Axle Cultural Attractions: Detroit Symphony Detroit Red Wings Detroit Tigers Detroit Lions Fischer Theatre Motown Museum African American Museum Detroit Institute of Arts Colleges & Universities University of Detroit-Mercy, Wayne State University, Center for Creative Studies, Wayne County Community College, Detroit College of Law
