Currently located in Oakland, CA and Antioch, CA, the history of the district can be traced with a phone call in October of 2002, to Nana Addo by Pastor S. Omane-Yeboah, about his intentions to plant a church in the East Bay. After some initial resistance and much prayer, the church was inaugurated on December 15th 2002, in the living room of Mrs. Ellen Adejobi by Pastor S. Omane-Yeboah.

It started with six people; Nana Addo, Ellen Adejobi, Mr. & Mrs. Owusu, Drusilla Ardayfio and Cecilia Battle. After a month, a request was made to the District for someone who would lead this small assembly to new spiritual heights and also reach out to the community to spread the love and the Gospel of Christ. This request was heeded and it led to the first presiding elder of the assembly – Elder Osei-Darfour, who steered the assembly to new heights.

As the church grew, there was the need to move from the living room to a bigger place, and on the 9th of February 2003, the church started having its services in the afternoon at Plymouth Church in Piedmont. Even though, the place of worship was great, the time for services was not conducive for growth, as it coincided with the work schedules of many members. So, in April 2003, the church moved again and started having its morning services at one of the studios in the city building at the Alice Arts Center, Oakland.

After 2 years, and the church still growing, it was decided that in June 2005 the church moved to its current place of worship, 4519 Martin Luther King Way. After 11years at MLK way and to the Glory of God, we have now moved to our final place of worship 1015 Estudillo street Martinez CA. God has been good and He continues to show himself faithful. There has been numerical growth, but most importantly, the body of Christ has grown in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. From a humble number of six committed members, the Oakland District is now blessed with a total of about 250 members (and still growing), 3 assemblies, a District Pastor, 10 Elders, 5 Deacons, 12 Deaconesses and a District status. We are excited about the great things God has in store for us. Antioch assembly was born in 2014 out of the Oakland Central church and PIWC Oakland in 2016.
