Visitor Frequently Asked Questions
Are you planning to attend one of our churches and are wondering what to expect? Here are a few questions you may have and some answers to help you get to know us. Come and see for yourself what this life-changing movement is all about.
Which bible do you use?
We believe the King James translation of bible rightly interpreted is the authenticated Word of God (II Timothy 3:16-17, Revelation 22:18-19, Deuteronomy 4:1-8).
What are your core beliefs?
We believe in the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, which are the cornerstone of our belief systems. Visit What We Believe for more information.
Do you believe in the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost?
Yes, we believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit/Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues (Acts 2:4, 10:45-46, 19:6).
When are your services?
We currently have services on Sundays at 11:30 a.m. and Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. On Thursday, we have Bible Study at 7:30 p.m.
Do you have a program for your services?
We do not use programs for our services, nor is there a set agenda for each service. Instead, we believe in being led by the Spirit of the Lord. We do have customs, officials, and a strong order, but we always want the Lord to have His way in each service and we want to hear what the Spirit is saying unto the church.
Is there a special service for children or Sunday school?
We believe that the best form of school on Sundays (not Sunday School) is with an ordained ministry as teachers of the bible, and that we must have an understanding of the Holy Writ (I Timothy 2:4, Proverbs 4:5-9, Colossians 1:9). Our children and youth are encouraged to participate in our services.
Who is the pastor?
The Founder and General Overseer is Brother Lacy Hawkins. He has developed a ministerial leadership within each church according to the example in the book of Acts (Acts 14:23, Titus 1:5). Meet our ministers
What ministries do you have?
We believe in God’s divine government for the Church and that the Church is one body with apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers (Ephesians 4:1) who make up the ministry of God.
How do I join the church?
We do not have a formal membership to join the church. We believe you are added to the church by a revelation that the Lord gives you personally about whether or not you should attend our church. Being a part of this church is an individual choice, one that we hope you will make because so many people have benefited greatly from making this their church home.
How long does service usually last?
We allow the Lord to lead our services, so it’s hard to provide an exact time of when service may end. Sunday service begins at 11:30 a.m. and may typically last 2 to 3 hours. Service and Bible Study on Tuesdays and Thursdays begin at 7:30 p.m. and typically conclude before 9:30 pm.
