// Our Story //

Welcome to Johnson Memorial Church where we open our doors wide to people from all backgrounds.  We are blessed to be a 96-year old church that is continues to honor our legacy and share God's word to future generations in a sound and relevant way.  


We’re big enough for you to blend in comfortably without being lost in the crowd. From our full church worship services on Sunday, to our weekly LifeGroup gatherings, we offer corporate and intimate discipleship opportunities. Join us to develop authentic and enduring relationships with others. Together, we’re striving to become a Biblical church with relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for those in need.


We strive to have the kind of contagious Christianity that influences and encourages entire communities. Whether you are a spiritual seeker asking questions about God or a committed Christian growing in your faith, you belong at JMC.  


Join us on Sundays at 9am or 11 am for our Worship Experience and check out our ministries to go deeper.  


WE ARE...

We are real people infused with dynamic faith, committed to a common vision, joined together in the covenant love of our Creator. 


WE USED TO BE...

We used to be completely broken but are now grateful for undeserved redemption, astonished by amazing Grace, healed by forgiveness and humbled by the divine invitation to share the Gospel of Christ.


WE SERVE...

We serve because He served first. Faith without works is dead. The love of God and the Holy Spirit empower believers to minister well to the least of these.


// OUR BELIEFS //


TRINITY

God exists as one entity in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity serves an individually different function and purpose, yet they each possess the equal power and authority. God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity.

​Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23, 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19


THE FATHER

God is love. He is awesome, all powerful, all knowing, with us everywhere we turn, never changing, never forsaking, holy, and perfect. God is great. He is our Father in Heaven, always watching over us with compassion.  

​Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; Psalm 11:4-6; John 3:16; Acts 17:28

THE SON

Jesus Christ. Completely human, yet completely God. Jesus is the only way and plan for people to be brought back into a right relationship with God.  He was born of a virgin birth, lived a perfect life, and was the perfect sacrifice for our sins.  He was buried, resurrected, and lives today. ​


MAN

Man was created by God, in the image of God. Man was created to have fellowship with God but became separated from God through disobedience; Sin. Man cannot get back to a right relationship with God except through the forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ. 

Genesis 1:26-30, 2:7, 18-22; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31, 15:19; Ephesians 2; Colossians 1:21-23

SALVATION

Salvation is God’s free gift to all mankind but we must accept it (John 1:12-13). We can never be saved by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness through the shedding of Jesus’ blood can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty (Romans 3:24-26, 5:1, 6:23, Galatians 2:16, Ephesians 2:4-10). When this happens a person is born again, forgiven of sins, set free from the power of sin (Romans 6:16-22).


WATER BAPTISM
We believe water baptism is an act of faith and obedience to the commands of Christ. Baptism declares that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a public confession of your faith and commitment to Jesus Christ. It is the next step after salvation through repentance and faith and is an important foundation for the Christian life. Outward testimony to an inward work already accomplished in the heart of the believer. 

Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38-41


ETERNITY
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are real places for eternal existence

Matthew 25:31-46, John 3:16, Romans 6:23, 2 Corinthians 5:1-8, 1 John 5:11-12, Revelation 20:15

THE CHURCH

The Church is made up of God's children, the believers.It is a community of saved believers in Christ. It fulfills Gods commandments and teachings to spread the Gospel of Christ to the world. 

​Matthew 16:18-19, 18:15-20 ; Acts 2:41-47, 14:23, 16:5, 20:28 ; 1 Corinthians 7:17, 9:13-14, 12 Ephesians1:22-23, 2:19-22 ; Colossians 1:18, 3:15 ; 1 Timothy 4:14 ; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3


JMC is affiliated with the Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church headquartered in Dunn, North Carolina.
