This 12-minute program celebrates the 120th Anniversary of the founding of the 8th Street Baptist Church in Wilmington, Delaware.


Using interviews with church elders and pastors, the video profiles the history of the original church, and the two Church communities it spawned---the Resurrection Center and the Canaan Baptist Church.


The program premiered at a joint ceremony of the two communities in 2012.

Music: The New Creation Gospel Singers, Quiet Time Players and Donald Lawrence and the Tri-City Singers.


Funded by The Resurrection Center.
