Pastor Vardie Hopkins was born in Southern California in 1937. He graduated from Santa Paula High School in 1955. He served in the U.S. Navy and played in the Drum and Bugle Corp.

He was raised in a Christian home and attended the Assembly of God and Four Square Churches. He accepted Jesus as his Savior and was filled the Holy Ghost and called into the ministry in 1956.

In 1961 his arm was severely burned in an accident. With amputation as his only option he experienced a miracle healing when his parents took him to a tent revival with Evangelist James Foster. He then traveled with the Tent Ministry as a music director in the Western and Southern United States.

He met and married Sister Hopkins in 1964. They and their children traveled and sang Country Gospel Music in churches in California and Texas. They have 5 children whom are all grown, married, and their families are serving the Lord.

Pastor Vardie Hopkins was licensed in 2002 with the Pentecostal Church of God. When Open Door Christian Fellowship was closed down and the building sold, some of the members wanted to continue to meet together. Brother Hopkins was asked to Pastor the congregation and after prayer he felt led to continue the work that was started there.

It is a small congregation of faithful believers who expect miracles and who love to serve the Lord. We have old time revival preaching and traditional and Country Gospel music. Come and be blessed and grow with us as we seek to walk in the path that our Lord would have us go.
