A large crowd witnessed the baptizing. The foundation of Metropolitan became established in this first step of a "dream come true." The membership outgrew the house, so now Rev. Taylor and Rev. Boswell began to look for a larger place. They found a large house located at 1231 Garfield Ave., (now the parsonage). The house offered great possibilities, soon they made arrangements to purchase the property. On September 22, 1925, the church became the Metropolitan Spiritual Church of Christ, founded by Rev. Taylor and Rev. Boswell. Services were held on the first floor. The membership continued to grow. The house was enlarged, and additions to the building, extended the property to the east of the parsonage. The church was dedicated in 1926. In 1927 a new church entrance was dedicated on East 13th Street. Rev. Taylor was elevated to the office of Bishop at climax of the Ninth Annual Spiritual Congress In 1934.
