Total Deliverance Church, founded by Bishop Avery Austin, was established in January 2000. He began the ministry in his home in Los Angeles, California with six members. As the Lord began to bless Bishop Austin, he was directed to relocate the church and his family to Lancaster, California where he held the first service at the Oxford Inn Hotel with approximately 6 members. Bishop Austin continued to believe God, and with much prayer and fasting, the ministry began to show rapid growth. The church was able to move to a rental property on 20th Street West and Ave. J in Lancaster, CA in 2002 with 11 members.
With Bishop Austin’s powerful preaching and teaching of God’s word, the church grew from 11 members to 160 members within one year! Remaining faithful to God, Bishop Austin’s obedience to the voice of God afforded the church further growth and development so that in 2003 there were over 300 faithful members. Unable to remain in the current facility even after adding an 8am service, the church moved again to Sierra Hwy and Ave. J. At this point, the Ministry accommodated 4 departments, over 10 auxiliaries, and 6 ministries; including the Compassion Ministry which provides food, clothing and toiletries for families throughout the Antelope Valley.
In 2009, TDC was declared, “The fastest growing church in the Antelope Valley” by the LA Focus Newspaper.
Remaining true to that declaration, the church continued to grow! God spoke to Bishop Austin again with a charge to Move Forward! Now, with over 1500 active members, we are currently in our new edifice located at 2733 West Ave L, Lancaster, CA 93536. Presently, the Ministry accommodates 15 departments, 15 ministries, and 12 auxiliaries! As we continue to seek God, we are assured that God will continue to place His favor upon Bishop Avery Austin, the Total Deliverance Church family and the community we serve!
Bishop Austin is a man giving to much prayer.
