The Church of God has a long history throughout the country. From small beginnings at Barney Creek to the second largest Pentecostal denomination in the world.
Dowling Park Church of God was organized on January 1, 1936. A group of people prayed for revival near the Suwannee River and Dowling Park Church of God was birthed from that prayer.
The church has been a training ground and a launcing pad for many preachers through the years. Eventhough its nestled in the pines between Suwannee County and Lafayette County, many know its rich history and the Power of God that has visited its people many times.
The church is now emerging to reclaim and to revitalize the Sword of the Spirit that will produce and prolong the Power of Pentecost along the Suwannee river once again.
