Believing in God’s Word and Spirit

The Ministry began in 1993 as twelve adults from two churches, one Baptist and the other Full Gospel Pentecostal, came together to form a single church. God used Pastor Matthews to guide the merger and unification of this fragment from the two congregations. While pastoring both congregations, it became apparent to Pastor Matthews that God was calling for a church to minister His Word beyond the traditionally understood realm of local ministry.
With this understanding of our role as a church, came the realization that our church should unite under a government that would foster the development of a broader base of ministry. This merger and resulting new church is a fulfillment of the vision from God to assemble believers from separate components of the Body of Christ into one unit to communicate God’s message to Birmingham, Bessemer and beyond.
