The Apostolic Church had been present in Esbjerg since the 1920’s. The first meetings where held privately in the home of Baker Ole Nielsen and his wife Magdalene. In March 1927, the church is Esbjerg became an independent congregation and Ole Neilsen commissioned as its leader.

They originally met in the Brandts Hotel but have used several well known buildings over the years including the old Technical College on Englandsgade. In 1936 they moved to a property on Jyllandsgade 41 which they managed to purchase i 1951; This was where the church was based until 1967.
