Miracle Temple Church of Evangelism, Incorporated was founded in 1981.  There were several locations but in 1988 despite much opposition, land was purchased in the North End section of Goldsboro, at 409 West Hooks River Road. Seven years later, a new church edifice was erected.  The vision of the Lord to our founders was not to be just another church on the corner, but a training station, a filling station, a place where people would be delivered and set free, “A House of Miracles”.

In 2001, Mona Lisa was ordained as Pastor of Miracle Temple Church of Evangelism, Incorporated.  She and Teacher Philip Michael Williamson faithfully serve the body of Christ. They can demonstrate an understanding of the human condition yet bring no glory to it, instead, they are able to administer the redemptive power of Jesus Christ.  They continue to bring the believer to a closer relationship with Christ, knowing that there is no test, no tribulation, nothing that the devil can bring into their lives that can ever cause our defeat.  The Greater One is within us.  We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. (Isaiah 54:17, 1 John 4:4, Romans 8:37).
