THE HISTORY: THE DAWNING OF A VISION

Bishop William Frank Taylor
Founder of The Metropolitan Spiritual Churches of Christ, Inc.

Born on May 14, 1886 in Jacksonville, Texas. He was one of five children born to Mattie J. And James M. Taylor. His family moved to Oklahoma where he received his formal education. While living in Oklahoma, he accepted the call from God and entered the gospel ministry. He became an Evangelist in the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church. When he moved to Chicago, Illinois, he united with the St. Paul Baptist Church. Later he moved his membership to the Metropolitan Community Church, wh~re he met Leviticus L. Boswell. Shortly thereafter, Bishop Taylor and Leviticus L. Boswell started evangelizing around the country, preaching and singing in various churches.

In 1924 Rev. William F. Taylor migrated to Kansas City, Missouri, and began conducting prayer meetings at the home of Mrs. Cora Murray. Later, more appropriate facilities were found where Sunday morning and evening services could be held. Rev. Taylor would visit hospitals and homes of the sick and shut-in each Monday morning and pray for them. Baptism services were held at the "Big Lake" in Kansas City, before large crowds of spectators.

The Metropolitan Spiritual Church of Christ was founded on September 22, 1925 in Kansas City, Missouri. When the membership outgrew its original location, a building was purchased at 9th and Lydia Streets. The community was greatly displeased with this move and offered the congregation several times over their initial payment to move. After much harassment, services were then moved to the home of Rev. Taylor at 13th and Garfield . The Metropolitan Spiritual Church of Christ was erected at that location by a local contractor named Joseph Wood (the husband of Mother Pearl C. Wood.)

The church was founded on a Four Square Ministry of Teaching, Preaching, Healing and Prophecy. The church was noted for its unusual order of service and soul stirring music. Rev. William F . Taylor was ordained Bishop on Sunday, September 23, 1934 during the Ninth Annual Congress of the Metropolitan Spiritual Churches of Christ. Bishop William F. Taylor made his transition at the home of Rev. Mother Pearl Wood, in Los Angeles, California on March 17, 1942. (History Continued)
