WHO WE ARE

OUR MISSION

LOVE GOD | LOVE PEOPLE | SHARE HOPE

At Praise Assembly no matter what you’ve been through or what questions you might have, our Church is a place where you'll find the grace, mercy, and forgiveness Jesus gives to everyone. We believe God loves us where we are, but He never leaves us there. He has given each of us the opportunity to grow together in Spirit and in truth through the body of Christ

OUR MISSION

WHAT WE BELIEVE

HOLY BIBLE

The Bible is completely inspired by God, and serves as our authoritative guide for faith and practice.
2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21

ONE GOD

There is only One True God, known as the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; John 14:16-17

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus is God’s Son, both completely man and completely God.
Matthew 1:23; Hebrews 7:26; 1 Corinthians 15:3; Matthew 28:6; Acts 1:11

REDEMPTION

Humanity’s sin has separated us from God, and the only way to restore the relationship is forgiveness offered through Jesus Christ, making us right before God and leading us on a life-long path to God.
Romans 5:12-19; Luke 24:47; Titus 3:5-7

ORDINANCES

There are two ways from the Bible that show our commitment to Christ that we should absolutely follow:  Water Baptism after Salvation, and Participating in Holy Communion.
Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47-48; 1 Corinthians 11:26

BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a free gift for all believers that will give them strength to live life as a witness of Jesus Christ.
Acts 1:8, 2:4, 19:1-7

MISSION

There is one Holy Universal Church that has a mission to evangelize the world, disciple followers of Christ, worship God, and provide Christlike works of compassion to all.
Mark 16:15-16; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Ephesians 4:11-16; James 1:27

SECOND COMING

Jesus will return, judge the world, and begin a time of eternal relationship with those who follow Him and eternal separation from those who choose not to follow.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-13; 2 Peter 3:13

BELIEFS
STAFF

Interim Lead Pastor
Dave Nelson

Pastor Dave Nelson's journey of faith has been both profound and impactful. Meeting his beloved wife, Tonya, during their time at Southeastern University, their bond has been fortified through shared spiritual purpose and dedication. When Dave heard the call to ministry, he answered faithfully. He has dedicated almost 16 years of his life in service as a Navy chaplain, touching countless lives with his wisdom and compassion.

Together with Tonya, they have shown a deep commitment to the younger members of our congregation, having led the youth ministry with devotion and enthusiasm here at Praise Assembly. As they now step forward to serve as our interim lead pastors, our church community feels immensely blessed. With Pastor Dave at the helm, we remain confident and inspired as we navigate the path ahead, seeking the next visionary leader for our ministry.

SATURDAY 15TH (89)_edited.jpg

We honor the legacy left in the hands of Praise Assembly from Pastor Jamie Gardner. Praise Assembly has been blessed to have a leader such as him. His heart for Christ, and sharing hope to our community was evident in everything he did. We will miss him dearly, but we continue to move forward with the future that God has laid before us in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ.
