Dollar began developing World Changers Ministries Christian Center in 1986.

Four services were held each Sunday, and Creflo added a weekly radio broadcast. On December 24, 1995, WCCI moved into its present location, the 8,500-seat facility known as the World Dome. The church has said that the nearly $18 million World Dome was built without any bank financing. As of 2007, the congregation reported had around 30,000 members, and $69 million in revenue (gross cash collections) for 2006.
In October 2012, Creflo Dollar Ministries leased Loews Paradise Theater in The Bronx for a new church location in New York.
