On April 3, 1983, the beginning of a new era was marked in DeKalb County, Georgia. Under the leadership of Elder Ralph B. Hairston, President of the South Atlantic Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist, the first Black Seventh-day Adventist Church in DeKalb County was organized. Elder E. W. Moore, Elder Joseph Hinson and Elder C.D. Henri were called to lead and assist the new flock. The group was originally called The United Decatur Seventh-day Adventist Church, this was later changed to "The Decatur Seventh-day Adventist Church."
The church was founded on the principal of love as stated in John 3:16-17: 'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." When the call went out for charter members, 118 individuals from the surrounding area churches responded and made the Decatur Seventh-day Adventist Church their new church home.
