What to Expect
At Christ Gospel Church we are blessed to Worship God in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24). Worship and prayer services are exuberant times of joy and celebration. A visitor of Christ Gospel Church will hear congregants praying in tongues for the edification of their souls (1 Corinthians 14:4), as well as witness congregants shouting, singing, dancing, clapping, raising their hands, weeping, and yielding to the Holy Ghost as He works through their mortal bodies to give Jesus due praise and gratitude. What a blessing to have the Holy Ghost to help us pray, for as the Bible says, “we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” (Romans 8:26).
For someone unfamiliar with the movement of the Holy Ghost, Christ Gospel services can be surprising, but we encourage all members and visitors to maintain reverence for God’s Spirit by keeping their minds and eyes focused on Jesus’ sacrifice and offering Him whatever love and praise they can.
Dearly Beloved Friend,
Welcome to Christ Gospel Church of Rome, GA! As you worship with us, we hope your soul will be richly blessed through His precious spirit, and that your happiness will be increased through His Holy Word.
Christ Gospel is a fundamentalist, Pentecostal Christian group. Our doctrines are based on the Holy Scriptures. The Church exists for the sole purpose of praising and serving the Lord, and also for the teaching of the Word of God.
We believe in Salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ, the Baptism of the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues, and in Water Baptism in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the foundation on which all spiritual growth takes place. Consequently, our services are based on showing believers how to grow and mature in the spiritual stature of the Lord Jesus Christ.
You will notice the light are lowered during prayer service. We lay ourselves before God in repentance, and we let the Holy Ghost lead us to intercession and travail. This cleans a new place in our hearts for Jesus Christ’s Name and Nature.
Romans 8:26 26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
You will see people running, shouting, rebuking, and shaking under the power of God. Do not be alarmed, for this is what the Apostle Peter spoke of in Acts chapter two. The prophet Jeremiah also said, “It’s like fire shut up in my bones” (Jeremiah 20:9).
The Word of God states that we should worship the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Luke 10:27). We sincerely pray that while you are visiting us, you will be blessed with the special presence of Jesus Christ. We hope you will experience the Son’s Joy and Delight of doing the Father’s Will. We appreciate your presence, and you are welcome to worship God with us at any time.
In His Precious Love,
Rev. Rocky Calvert (Pastor)
