They Called it a "Happy Hill"

Once the new church building had been established, the church became known as the "Street Mission" named after the Street's. For nearly ten years, the Street Mission name was used until the church became affiliated with a fellowship named The Church of God of the Apostolic Faith (COGAF) based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This Trinitarian group has been the denominational standard for our church; even to this day.

Around this time, people began to refer to the church as "Happy Hill." People who passed by in the gully north of the church would hear the saints crying, laughing and shouting. People would say to each other, "This is a happy hill." So the name "Happy Hill Church" became a nickname given by the people passing by. In later years, the name Happy Hill became incorporated into the church name and it has been known the world over by this name.
