I truly believe that Freedom In Christ Church is one of our communities best kept secrets. From the time of our beginning in 1978 when our church was pioneered by my parents Pastor George Pogue Sr. and his wife Nancy our mission has remained the same. We are called by God to be a lighthouse for Him in our community. To be a church where everyone feels the love of God and feels welcome regardless of their background or current situation. No one should ever go to church and not feel loved.
At Freedom In Christ Church we teach a strong “Word of faith” message. We teach God’s children how to live their lives by faith. The Bible says in Romans 10:17 “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Not only do we have a strong faith teaching, we also believe in the Spirit- filled experience in our services where the Holy Spirit has free reign to touch lives as we flow with Him. Truly one touch from God can change a life forever. 2 Corinthians 3:17 says, “…where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom” (New Living Translation).
The spiritual growth of our children and youth is very important to us. We have the understanding that if we do not teach our children to serve the Lord, the world will teach them not to. In our services the children and youth receive the same Word of faith teachings and moving of the Spirit as the adults do. My son Pastor Dane Pogue Children and Youth Pastor and he is a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center he and his wife Inayah head up all of our Children’s programs. Our number one goal as a church is to continue to grow and improve our Children & Youth Programs. Raising children in today’s society is hard, we desire to work with the parents in helping them raise their children in the love and wisdom of God.
We are also very involved in ministering in the community and helping families that are in need. Answering the call of the Great Commission and going out into all the world preaching the gospel is also very important to us. Bogota, Colombia is the main area of destination for our mission trips.
The addition of the Ruth Hain Fellowship Center has given has greatly enhance our ability to grow our Children & Youth programs.
Finally, we believe that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is our soon coming King. When He comes we will be found faithful doing His work. We are excited with the anticipation that God will continue to send us co-laborers, as we faithfully fulfill His calling. We thank God for people who love God and have a heart to serve. People who will dedicate themselves to doing the work of the Lord in the local church. We welcome anyone who desires to be a part of our Freedom In Christ Church family. To God be the glory.
