We've Come this Far By Faith

Rev. Stephen Reynolds, Sr, and his wife

Pioneer James Reynolds, Sr.

The late Rev. James R. Reynolds, Sr. founded the Deliverance Center in 1967 with the aid of several volunteers. In time, Rev. Reynolds' own family members have become a part of daily functions at the Deliverance Center along with several very dedicated volunteers.

Initially, the Deliverance Center helped and worked for the transformation of alcoholics and drug addicts. This focus is especially seen in its name, as being a place of deliverance from any bondage of sin.

The Deliverance Center was birthed as a local church out of this "street ministry" and practical help.

In 1969, DC expanded to include an educational facility. The first of its schools, Deliverance Bible Institute, was established to train young adults for Christian service in a three-year course. From 1979-2010, Christian Academy of Portland extended the student body and curriculum to include grades K-12. Today, Deliverance Bile Institute and the education vision of Deliverance Center is realized through Bible exchange.


From the Streets of Portland, Maine to Africa

The Gospel is for All

The church family of Deliverance Center are strong believers in mission work. In 1967, Before there was a church at 1008 Congress, Ministry Pioneer James Reynolds, Sr. served the homeless and rejected of Portland, Maine. With a warm meal, clothing and a bed Bro. Reynolds, his family and the help of wonderful volunteers spread the love of Christ. Today, that vision for practical Christianity and service is our daily ambition. Througout the past 45+, the Lord Jesus Christ has enabled Deliverance Center to teach children in a Christian School, train Christian workers in a Bible school, rescue the helpless and homeless on the streets of Portland and financialy and physically support mission work accross the world and at home.
