Who We Are

The "City On A Hill"

 

Decades ago, a prophet of God named Aram Mushegan stood on the property where our church now stands and spoke to our founding pastor, Pastor Sam, that "a city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden" (Matt. 5:14). 

This prophetic word is the vision that drives our ministry. When we began our ministry, the Lord spoke that we were to be called "The Dwelling Place Church." Years later, the Lord spoke again - and we changed our name to reflect our vision and calling. We are the "City On A Hill!"

Where We Came From

 

Over one hundred years ago, a group of people who only had the promise of God and His prophetic word came from the small country of Armenia to the United States. After they left, hundreds of thousands of Armenians were massacred in their home country, including everyone from the village which these people left behind. Had the believers not  followed the prophetic word given to them by God, they too would have been slaughtered. These Spirit-filled Christians moved to Los Angeles, and they began serving the Lord in power. Because of their faithfulness to God, many miracles have been documented in the lives of these people throughout the last century. Our founding pastor, the late Pastor Sam Lalaian, grew up in this powerful community of Armenian Pentecostals, and was called to carry on the prophetic ministry. That ministry is now here in Loganville at the City On A Hill, pastored by his son Danny.
