The church was organized on December 10, 1960, as Blakely Church of God, by a small group of Christian believers who first began worshiping together at a brush arbor. In 1963 the church was reorganized by Rev. Leon Poteet. Under Rev. Poteet’s leadership the congregation re-located to a small block building on Hogan’s Avenue. After outgrowing the small block building, the church was forced to relocate again. So, in 1968 under the leadership of Rev. Franklin Griffis, property on Lucile Highway was purchased from W.C. White. In 1969, the congregation acquired a loan to begin construction of the new church sanctuary. The new sanctuary on Lucile Road was completed in 1970.

As of June 2019, the church was renamed as Redemption Church and  the church added their second campus which is located in Arlington, Ga. The Blakely location is now known as Redemption Church West and the Arlington Campus as Redemption Church East. Like all other Churches, within the Church of God denomination; Redemption Church was founded upon the principles of Christ as they are revealed in the Bible. It has its foundation of faith and practice rooted and planted firmly in the Scriptures. The Church of God is founded upon the principles of Protestantism, but identifies itself as a Pentecostal Denomination.
