The church will move into the old Delta Dental building

Eagan City Council on Tuesday approved a measure to allow the Holy Christian Church to begin work on its new church and world headquarters.

There were a few questions about the zoning standards, but ultimately what was approved allows the Holy Christian Church to apply for permits and begin work.

The church will move to the former Delta dental practice building near the Blue Cross Blue Shield campus in Eagan, adjacent to Blue Cross Road and Ashbury Road.

Holy Christian Church plans to convert the 64,000 square foot office building into a religious facility with worship space, classrooms and offices with room for youth and senior programs, outreach community and ministerial activities.

There will be no exterior modifications at this time, said city planner Mike Schultz.

Reverend Wayne Felton of Holy Christian Church said they plan to build a new religious shrine in the future on the undeveloped land east of the office building. They would then use the office building for preschool at the 12th grade Christian school.

Plans for a seminar are about five years in the future, he said.

He said the church has about 705 sites around the world and is “growing”.

According to its website, the Holy Christian Church is present in the United States, Mexico, Jamaica, Liberia, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Kenya, Uganda and India.

The church had moved beyond its location at 125 Stevens St. W. in St. Paul, and was looking for a location to set up a new church, a new school, and a new world headquarters.

According to its website, “The Holy Christian Church is an assembly of Christian believers of all racial origins united under a common doctrine and vision to carry the message, ministry and mission of Jesus Christ throughout the world; leading people to the holiness of God and the fulness of life in Jesus Christ through the person and power of the Holy Spirit.
