PASTORAL CARE SERVICES
HOLY COMMUNION"And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me." (I Corinthians 11:24-25) Holy Communion is a memorial of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It symbolizes our freedom from sin and its effect on our fellowship with God through Christ. The Greek word for communion in the New Testament is KOINONIA, which means “a fellowship, a partaking.” Therefore, Holy Communion is a physical reminder of our fellowship with Christ and our victory over the devil. The Bible teaches that an individual should not participate in Holy Communion “unworthily” (I Corinthians 11:27). This would refer to two states of being: -An individual who has not received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (not born again). -A born again believer who has unconfessed sin in his or her life. As an assembled body of believers, we partake of Holy Communion the fourth Sunday of every month.
WATER BAPTISM"And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (Matthew 28:19-20) Water Baptism is a biblical ordinance given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ. The word “baptism” comes from the Greek word “BAPTIZO” which means to plunge into, submerge, to sink, thrust under, immerse, or soak. Water Baptism is an act of obedience that is subsequent to the New Birth experience. It is an outward sign of the inward grace of salvation. It represents that we have died to sin and self, and we now live new lives in Him. Therefore, it is important to note that Water Baptism does not have any saving power. There is only one way that we can become born again Christians, and that is by receiving Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior (Romans 10:8-10).

BABY DEDICATION“There were brought unto him little children that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19: 13-14) Children are a gift from God (Psalm 127:3). There is no greater moment in time when this truth is more realized by parents than at the birth of their child. Understanding this truth, we believe that presenting and dedicating a child to God should be as natural to Christian parents as burping a baby after he is fed. Baby Dedication is a scriptural practice. We read in the Gospel according to Luke (Luke 2:22-33) that the parents of Jesus dedicated Him unto the Lord on the eighth day as the Law had prescribed (Leviticus 12:1-4). Also in the Gospel according to Matthew (Matthew 19: 13-14), we read about how people brought their little ones to Jesus so that He might place His hands on them and pray for them. Following the scriptural example of Jesus, during our Baby Dedication Service, Bishop Keith A. Butler prays and lays hands on each and every child pronouncing the Blessing of God upon their lives. Parents publicly acknowledge God’s ownership of their child and pledge before God and His people to bring up their child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. click here to register online
COUNSELING"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

HOMEGOING SERVICES“But I would not have you to ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that you sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

HOSPITAL VISITATION"Is any sick among you? Let him call for the Elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he has committed sins, they shall be forgiven him." (James 5:14,15) Word of Faith has the God given responsibility to visit the sheep that is away from the sheepfold due to medical challenges. They can count on their church to be there for them. When an immediate family member (Parents, Grandparents, Spouse, Children, or Siblings) is hospitalized, you may call the church 24 hours a day and leave your name, number, and hospital and a Pastoral Care Minister will immediately return your call for visitation.

LONG-TERM CARE“For I was hungered, and you gave me meat: I was thirst, and you gave me drink: I was a stranger, and you took me in: naked, and you clothed me: I was sick, and you visited me” (Matthew 25:35,36) The ministry of Word of Faith is to reach out to those that are sick and shut-in. The heart of Bishop Keith A. Butler is to put in place special ministry for those that are sick and shut in. Members of Word of Faith are entitled to this special ministry from our Pastoral Care department. They are provided with Ministry of the Word and Holy. The member must be sick and shut-in with some form of medical challenge. Our goal is to minister the healing power from the Word of God and restore them back into the sheepfold.
