A NEW MINISTRY FORMING
The Tate and Keen families have been sent-out on May 1, 2016 to start evangelizing Dunlap. Since 2012, these two families have been faithfully driving for almost two hours every Sunday while seeking the will of God concerning a church in Dunlap.
Brother Marty Tate was ordained as a teacher in our assembly in January of 2013 and has been faithfully excercising his gifts while helping the pastor in street evangelism and other ministries. He is a powerful preacher and strong biblical apologist.
You can contact Brother Marty at 423-903-8826.
WE HAVE A CHURCH IN DUNLAP!
We're so thankful that the Lord has blessed us in establishing a church in Dunlap, TN! This scripturally proves there is still a true church (Matt 16:18), and it still operates as Jesus commanded and as outlined in the Book of Acts. No deputation, fund-raisers, marketing questionnaires, buses, community events, building, Bible college, "missionaries," or "evangelists" needed, just good ole gospel preachin' and the leadership of the Holy Ghost through the churches of Jesus Christ!

WHAT ABOUT CHURCH PLANTING?
The Apostle Paul preached the gospel in 10 cities during his first "missionary" journey. Only 3 churches were started. According to the Fundamentalist view of our day, Paul would be a failure. Why? Because he did not plant churches in every city. After all, EVERY city needs a church in it, right?
Our commission is to preach the gospel and then baptize those who have repented and believed. If there are those who actually become saved, it is evident that the Lord is establishing a church in that city. We are not to rent or erect a building, place a pastor in it, and then say, "Go get 'em!" Many churches are closing anually and many pastors are discouraged because they feel like failures. If we would smply return to the Master's model for the Great Commission, the onus will be off of our backs and the Lord will do His part... establish churches!
