Long Description:
... but it is not.

It is currently occupied by the Elim Christian Fellowship. According to the history page of its website (see link below) ELIM Christian Fellowship was established on November 7, 1999, in Buffalo, under the inspiration of God to the visionary and Senior Pastor T. Anthony Bronner. "ELIM Christian Fellowship is a multi-cultural, bible based, spirit-filled ministry engaged in spirit-led worship that touches the heart of God and equips the Saints to do the work of Jesus Christ to evangelize the Nations...."

"ELIM Christian Fellowship of Rochester, New York also under the leadership of Senior Pastor T. Anthony Bronner, was birthed on Sunday, November 17, 2002. The expansion of Elim Christian Fellowship into the Rochester community was an "evolution not a revolution." It was a natural progression for a dynamic, forward-thinking ministry that is only bound by its leadership's desire to win souls for Christ. The next few years produced an outpour and influx of what was coined as "permanent visitors" from other churches from all denominations due to the unconventional time of worship service beginning at 2:00 pm.

"The congregation continued to expand over the next two years which led to the expansion, relocation and purchase of our current worship center. On September 13, 2004 ELIM Rochester officially acquired property on the east side of Rochester."

So Elim accounts for the last 10 years of this churches 103-4 year history. If anyone can help me learn more of it's first congregation that would be much appreciated.
