Our church began in April, 2013, when a group of born again believers came together to study the Word of God. We are committed to the fundamentals of the faith based on the “whole counsel of God.” We have a strong emphasis on prayer and asking for God’s guidance as we seek to serve Him. Our church officially incorporated on June 21, 2013.
In our short history, we’ve been blessed with many “firsts” including: communion, baptism of new believers, funeral, baby dedication, and welcoming of first members. On April 1, 2014, Mike Clapham became our first pastor on a part-time, interim basis and on December 28, 2014, our first full-time pastor, Steve Mitchell, preached his first sermon. . In September 2020, Pastor Steve went home to be with the Lord and in March 2021, Pastor Charles Atkinson became our second full-time pastor.
The Lord has blessed us with the introduction of our Children’s ministry on September 1, 2013, and a burgeoning media ministry. The media ministry includes LiveStreaming of services and teachings. We also offer podcasts to listeners worldwide. We further offer teachings both locally and via the Internet by hosting prophecy conferences, guest speaker weekends, and special speakers on Sunday mornings.
Through God’s enablement, on August 10, 2018, we purchased our own facility, completely debt free, situated on 5.5 acres of land located at 2949 County Rd. 605, Sunbury, Ohio where we held our first service on September 9, 2018. In addition to our worship facility, God, subsequently, blessed us with additional modular classroom space which we occupied in 2021.
