St. Jean Baptiste was closed during April 2015 as part of the diocese's "Our Faith, Our Future" pastoral plan.
The church was considered a campus of St. Mary Catholic Church, 239 W. Clay Ave. in Muskegon.
Bishop Marvin Sapp, of national gospel music fame, purchased the building. He will begin holding services at the former St. Jean Baptiste, 1292 Jefferson St., during 2017.
Sapp announced on social media on Sunday, Jan. 1, that he would have services in Muskegon during 2017.
However, a start date was not announced.
A call to Marvin Sapp Ministries was not immediately returned.
St. Jean Baptiste served parishioners for more than 130 years. It was established during December 1883, according to the Catholic Diocese of Grand Rapids.
The sale price was not disclosed.
It was revealed in 2015 that the building required "extensive repairs" to remain open.
The Diocese of Grand Rapids serves more than 191,000 Catholics, 82 parishes and 30 schools in an 11-county area of West Michigan.
