In 1915 our church began with a few tent poles and several spirit-filled believers who desired more of God in their lives. With those humble beginnings, God began doing a special and unique work in Rock Hill. The Holy Spirit changed lives, relationships were made, and Garden Sanctuary Church of God was born. While many things have come and gone in Rock Hill over the last 100 years, Garden Sanctuary Church of God has become a fixture in the community. We have become a church strong in number, impact, and faith. We have moved beyond those tent poles to modern facilities, but our heartfelt desire for more of God remains unchanged.  If you are looking for a church family in Rock Hill, SC, whether you have a Pentecostal background or not, we would love to have you join us at Garden Sanctuary Church of God.  Garden Sanctuary Church of God is located at 831 Cedar St in Rock Hill SC.
