Founders James Bean II and Mother Pearline Bean moved to Minnesota from Gary, Indiana in 1986 and by the leading of the Lord, Pastor and Mother Bean started in their assignment to establish a church in the South Suburbs of the Twin Cities. In September 1987, in the basement of their apartment, they begin Faith, Hope, and Charity Church with 4 of their children and 5 other people. They were later joined by the Moore and Raspberry families, and Faith, Hope, and Charity grew in numbers. FHC relocated many times to accommodate that growth.
Again, being led by the Holy Spirit, Pastor Bean merged Faith, Hope, and Charity with another congregation—Faith, Hope, and Glory, led by Pastor John Zimmerman. The two congregations became one church and relocated to Burnsville. Soon God called Pastor Zimmerman to serve in North Carolina, and Pastor Bean was charged to continue in his service as pastor to grow and establish the Church that is now Spirit of Truth Church (SOTC). The Beans led SOTC until their retirement in September 2015. Under the Beans’ leadership, SOTC stood the test of time, and with God’s favor, we stand as a strong and growing church, providing ministry to Burnsville and the south suburbs of the Twin Cities.
