It held four services each Sunday and Dollar added a weekly radio broadcast.

In 2007, the congregation reported having around 30,000 members, and $70 million in revenue (gross cash collections) for 2006.

Creflo Dollar Finances and Prosperity Gospel Teachings
Dollar is known for controversial teachings regarding prosperity theology. He has long been criticized for living a lavish lifestyle. He owns two Rolls-Royces, a private jet, and high-end real estate such as a million-dollar home in Atlanta, a $2.5 million home in Demarest, New Jersey, and a home in Manhattan that he bought for $2.5 million in 2006 and sold for $3.75 million in 2012. Dollar has refused to disclose his salary. For declining to disclose any financial information to an independent audit, Creflo Dollar Ministries received a grade of “F” (failing) for financial transparency from the organization Ministry Watch.
He was among six televangelists who were the subject of a 2007 investigation led by United States Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa as ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee. Grassley asked for financial information to determine whether Dollar made any personal profit from financial donations and requested that Dollar’s ministry make the information available by December 6, 2007. The investigation also asked for information from five other televangelists: Paula White, Joyce Meyer, Eddie L. Long, Kenneth Copeland, and Benny Hinn. He contested the probe, arguing that the proper governmental entity to examine religious groups is the IRS, not the Committee on Finance. Dollar and three others were not cooperative, and the probe concluded in 2011 without any charges.
Creflo Dollar on Tithing
Dollar speaks on tithing saying that, “tithing isn’t required or even encouraged for believers in Jesus Christ.” His speech continued, “I want to start off by saying to you that I’m still growing and that the teachings I’ve shared in times past on the subject of tithing were not correct. And today, I stand in humility to correct some things I have taught for years and believed for years, but could never understand it clearly because I had not been confronted with the Gospel of grace, which has made the difference.”
