The Bancroft Church of God Mission was founded March 2, 1939, by the Reverend R.L. Gibson. Church services were held in the back of his store until March 1940 when a new building was constructed behind the store. In late 1943, the original sections of our present church were completed.
Since 1939, Bancroft Church of God Mission has grown from a one-room church to an assembly of nearly 200. Lives have been touched with sorrows and blessings and many souls have been saved. The heritage continues on through the joys and the tears of the congregation.
