The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out - Leviticus 6:13
With a great burden for the Lords Ministry few elders of Kakinada and who are co-workers with Bro. Bakht Singh from the early days, started praying Lord to open doors to start Ministry at Kakinada with a motto to serve the lord earnestly in 1983. Lord as shown a clear will when Bro. C. Prabhudas an elder and co-worker of Bro. Bakht Singh from Hebron visited Kakinada in 1987, while the elders at Kakinada Bro. Balasundara rau, Bro. James prayed together with Bro. Prabhudas for a suitable place for worship at Kakinada. A place near Boat club was offered by a local Hindu on rent and when the Brothers prayed on kneels in the sight for Lord's will God has shown his clear will and Bro. Prabhudas prophesied that Lord is going to do miracles at this place. Immediately a thatched shed was erected to accommodate a 100 people where they can worship and pray with liberty.

On 16th of May 1987 both the brothers were buried and on 17th of May 1987 the Sunday the whole family of Bro. Balasundar rau worshiped the Lord at Beersheba the newly started church. It was a great encouragement to believers as well as non believers of Kakinada for such testimony to withstand the adversaries created by Satan and stand to firmly for the Lord.

And we being exceedingly tossed with a tempest, the next day they lightened the ship; 19And the third day we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship. 20And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.Acts 27:21-23
On 6th of April 1990 at Mid day a hail storm hit the surroundings of Kakinada and as an effect of it the thatched shed of Beersheba collapsed while a day long fasting prayer was going on. Some of the brothers and sisters were injured and two brothers were seriously injured. But Lord secured a restored everything and a new bigger pendal was erected within a week without disturbing regular weekly program. Then the Church started to pray for a permanent structure and Lord heard all the prayers and cleared all the obstacles created by Satan in registering the site and to construct a new RCC building in 1993. The new Beersheba Church building was re-dedicated for the glory of God.
1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us,and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.Hebrews 12:1-3
