Designed by architect Philip Johnson, construction began in 1977 at a cost of 18 million. With over 10,000 panes of glass, the rectangular church building was completed in 1980. Built on a large parcel of land, the Crystal Cathedral was located in Garden Grove, California. Designed by Philip Johnson this reflective glass building had 2730 seats and was completed in 1981.

In 2010 the Crystal Cathedral which was founded by Robert H. Schuller in 1955 filed for bankruptcy. It had been affiliated with the Reformed Church in America. 
Through bankruptcy court, the Building and its adjacent buildings were sold to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange County on February 3, 2012. The bankruptcy court approved the selling price of $57.5 million. The diocese will re-open the building in 2017 after renovating it to become what will be known as Christ Cathedral.
