Our History and Statement of Faith

          Our church was founded in 1967 by Mose and Lela Acree.  The church was first started on Spring St., in Batavia, Ohio with a few faithful members many of whom are still active in the church today.   Mose and Lela's vision continued for several years til they moved to a new property in Owensville on Elmwood Rd. in 1973. After many trials and struggles they began to realize their vision with a new building in 1979. Mose and Lela continued to pastor and minister to those in their community. For over 25 years they committed their lifes to this ministry, leaving a lasting impression on those who knew them.

.  In the verbal inspiration of the Bible
.  In one God eternally existing in three persons, namely the Father, Son and Holy Ghost
.  That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, that Jesus was crucified, buried and raised from the dead.  That He ascended to heaven and today is at the right hand of the Father as the intercessor.
.  That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentence is comanded of God for all and  necessary for forgiveness of sins.
.  That justification, regeneration and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.
.  In sanctification, subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ, through the Word and by the Holy Ghost
.  Holiness to be God's standard for living for His people
.  In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart
.  In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost
.  In water baptism by immersion and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost
.  Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement
.  In the Lord's Supper and the washing of the saint's feet
.  In the premillennial second coming of Jesus.  First to resurrect the rightous dead, and to catch away the living saints to him in the air, second to reign on earth a thousand years
.  In the bodily resurrection, eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked
