Hi! and welcome into our fold, and thank you for choosing to worship the Lord with us but first, we would love to share a few things with you such as our Church History, and the dream God had given the Chuch founders. Secondly, we wish to tell you about our faith and why we believe in God, His Son, and the Holy Spirit. Also, we would love to introduce you to our Church Pastors as you read their
messages of faith.
On our website, you will find prayers to help in difficult times as well as Sermons that are focused on God's intervention in the life of believers, but most of all our number one goal is that you hear and understand the gospel of Christ. My
prayer is that we will exceed your expectations as we unfold Biblical truths that will enhance your spiritual walk with the Lord. Love you, in Christ Jesus, Pastor Dennis.
Husband-Wife Ministerial Team Dedicated To Serving Mechanicstown Spiritual Needs.
The late Herbert and Evangelist Gladys Jarvis of Middletown, New York Founded, The Gospel Mission Church in 1961.
This is their story.
A husband-wife-ministerial team, dedicated to preaching and teaching the Christian gospel, has put their varied talents to work in remodeling a church
to serve the spiritual needs of a racially intergraded Mechanicstown congregation. "The Rev. and Mrs. Herbert Jarvis of 5 Fair Ave said they are both licensed ministers of the New York General Conference of the Bethel AME Church. Their desire to serve a parish of their own remained unfulfilled until they were able to rent the former Nazarene Church and establish the "Voice of the Gospel Mission Church. The church is on Fairfax Avenue, Middletown, New York.
Rev. and Mrs. Jarvis were regular worshippers at the church when it was owned and operated by the Nazarenes. After the sect sold the church to a private citizen, the building stood idle for many months. The desire for their church grew keener. We felt we were called by the Lord to preach said Mrs. Jarvis
What we believe, teach, and practice as God's children.
We believe that all scripture is given by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2-Tim.3:16-17).
We believe what the Bible teaches about the Lord, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in these five truths
(1) Jesus was born of a virgin according to the scriptures. (Matt.1:18-21). (2) Jesus was crucified according to the scriptures. (Luke 23:33) (3) Jesus was Buried according to the scriptures (1-Cor:15:4) (4) God raised Jesus from the dead according to scripture (Acts 2:24) (5) We believe in life after death according to scripture. (John 6:54).
Because of the dedication and faithfulness of our late ancestors, we are reaping the rewards from their labor of love which they showed toward the Lord and His Church. God is blessing us, their children because of their faithfulness and sacrifices they endured for the sake of the Gospel.
