Antelope Valley Church of God in Christ is a powerful ministry in Littlerock, California. It was founded by Bishop G.L. Talley, a man who had a vision for his community and for the souls of men. With his vision and the help of his wife, Mother Helen Talley, this church was established. It is one of the oldest institutions for Christ in the Antelope Valley.
The church started in a home in Sun Village in 1952. The Lord opened a door for Pastor Talley to purchase property, and he built the church building, completing it in 1956. The first sanctuary seated 70 people. In 1971, forty feet were added to the building, increasing the capacity to 200 people. This sanctuary was essential for its congregation, and the Spirit of God moved in a mighty way.
God gave Pastor Talley the vision to build a larger facility to service the needs of the community. He desired to provide a church-school to educate children. He stepped out in faith and began to build with no money. Elder Emmanuel Oggs helped Pastor Talley build, and they were encouraged by Mother Talley’s words, “The Lord said he will provide whatever you need to get the job done.” The construction of a Fellowship Hall, classrooms, and a sanctuary began in 1989. They worked without wavering, block by block, praising God for his marvelous works! In 1993, the Fellowship Hall and classrooms for Desert Blossom Christian School were completed.
The old sanctuary was demolished in May 1999, and the congregation worshipped in the social hall while the new sanctuary was being built. On December 18, 2005, the congregation worshipped in the new sanctuary for the first time. It wasn’t painted and there was no carpet on the floor, but the members shouted and praised God for what he had already done!
In July 2011, Bishop Talley stepped up as the overseer and Elder Emmanuel Oggs became the pastor of Antelope Valley COGIC.
With the faithful membership, this ministry has been blessed to accomplish great things, and God is not through blessing us. We have seen God make the impossible possible! To God be the glory! It’s marvelous in our eyes!
The mission of Antelope Valley Church of God in Christ is to compel men, women, boys, and girls to come into the Kingdom of God; to love unconditionally; to teach and to inspire believers to be holy, and to live a life that is pleasing to God.
We are a church empowered by The Holy Ghost. The members of AVCOGIC grow in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. We use our spiritual gifts and talents to minister to people of all nationalities, and with faith in God, we positively impact our community, nation, and the world.

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent…(Romans 10:13)
