Church Inc.

Issue: "After the revolution," Feb. 26, 2011

The Church Inc. in Oildale, Calif., is only a year old but has outgrown its first building, a former tattoo shop, and is expanding to the building next door while keeping its mission of reaching out to the area's homeless and drug addicted.

I have been there myself and we preach the message of forgiveness through freedom in Christ,' said Pastor Eddie Houghtaling.
