On May 5, 1956, the former All Souls Universalist Church at 45 College Ave. in Somerville, MA became the Somerville Assembly of God. Dr. Samuel S. Bombara was its founding pastor.
In 1970, the church changed its name to St. Paul Evangelical Church (SPEC), while still remaining affiliated with the Assemblies of God.
In 1998, CRC started construction of a new church facility at 451 Lowell Street in Lexington. The new building was completed in one year, through miraculous financial provisions and the leadership of Dr. Bombara. The church building includes a sanctuary, a prayer chapel, administrative offices, educational complex, kitchen, and fellowship hall.
After serving 55 years as the senior pastor, teacher, and missionary, Dr. Bombara retired at the end of 2011. Although retired from full-time pastoral ministry, Dr. Bombara continues to remain active in missionary work in Eastern Europe and Croatia.
On November 20, 2011, Rev. Brent J. Sakoneseriiosta Maracle was voted in as the new senior pastor, and he preached his first sermon as Sr. Pastor on January 1, 2012. Pastor Maracle is the first senior pastor of Mohawk descent to be installed in the Southern New England Ministry Network of the Assemblies of God.
In 2015, the membership voted to change the name to Christ Revolution Church (CRC).
CRC is a vibrant cross-generational and intercultural community. We seek to be a true church “home” to our members and all who attend our services and various programs. While nurturing our own church family, we are committed to helping everyone find a revolutionary relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
CRC is deeply committed to the mission of compassion and social justice. We currently support Northpoint Bible College, many Assemblies of God US and World Missionaries, and several non-Assemblies of God missionary organizations. CRC also supports compassion ministries for disaster relief such as the Convoy of Hope, deliverance from substance abuse through Teen Challenge International, and ministries targeted at social justice issues such as Project Rescue and Loveline, which help rescue victims of human trafficking.
