The Church


On October 2, 1977 at the conclusion of a revival the Lord led Elder Colter to start a ministry. There were several people who were instrumental in helping this ministry get off the ground; Mother Viola Williams, Paul Hollaman & Family, Elder Lee Colter, Elder E.R. Perkins, Elder Major King and many others. He remained faithful to the call and the Lord began to add to the ministry. They held their first service at a building located at 2502 South 6thAvenue. They eventually moved to the Broadway location at 2509 East Broadway Rd.


In 1984 the Lord led Elder Colter to build an edifice from the ground up.  Through many trials he was determined to do what the Lord told him to do.  On July 26, 1986, the building was complete and Supt. Colter led the members of Whole Truth Campus in a victory march from the old church on Broadway Road to the new church at our present location, 4628 South 7th Street.

In June of 1983 during the Holy Convocation on the official Sunday, Elder Colter was elevated to the office of Superintendent of the Emmanuel District by the late Bishop Felton King. He served faithfully until his health began to fail. Because of his dedicated service and loyalty to his district and to the Arizona Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction he was again elevated to the office of Superintendent Emeritus by the late Jurisdictional Prelate and General Board Member Bishop LeRoy Robert Anderson.  In July of 2006 after much prayer, Supt. Colter talked with Bishop LeRoy Anderson and decided to retire as pastor of Whole Truth.  He recommended to Bishop Anderson that his adopted son in the gospel, Earl L. Newton should become pastor of Whole Truth Campus


Under the ministry of Pastor Earl Newton Whole Truth Campus has grown in all areas of ministry. The church has began to grow numerically but we are most proud of the spiritual growth of the ministry. Under Pastor Newton we have implemented many new ministries that are geared toward reaching the total man.
