The leader of this church is Bro. Archie Hayward, and he is truly a man sent by God. When you go to this church, you will hear a word that is specific to you and that can help you turn away from sin. If you obey the teachings, you will prosper in the ways of God. The motto at this church is "We don't come here because we are already so good or so perfect. We come here to be made good." And we are made good by obeying the teaching and having the mind to go all the way for God. There are "Perfecting of the Saints " bible studies here on Wednesday and Friday nights at 7:30pm where you can ask any question that you want and will get an answer straight from the word of God. Ask anything that you want to know, and Bro. Hayward can answer it. On Sundays, Sunday School starts at 10 am with Sunday Service Beginning at 11 am. Every 3rd Sunday of each month, we have our Young Adults on Fire for Christ Service at 6:30 pm. How many churches have you seen with young adults that live by the word of God: no cursing, no fornication, no drinking, no smoking, no adultery, no clubbing? It is happenning at Refuge Tabernacle. God is truly working in us, and I thank God for giving me an opportunity to hear his word and repent that my soul could be saved. Coming to Refuge Tabernacle was the best thing that ever happened to me. Come and see for yourself.
I only went to this church once due to an issue I had right after the service was finished. Once all is finished, the pastor invites the new visitors to go outside in a shaded area with church members who are there to give is a warm welcome and to offer us drinks and snacks. I was then approached by a male who began asking me personal questions. One of those questions was if I was married and I said yes. He asked where my husband was and I told him that he is incarcerated. He then said that the church has a program where they go out and visit inmates and preach the word of God which I thought was very fascinating. He then gave me a free bible and said I should give the bible to my husband and that it's important for me to preach the word to my husband even though our relationship may not last. I did not appreciate him saying that at all. Especially since I never asked for his opinion or advise regarding my marriage. I spoke to other members of the church and they were very kind, but I do not feel comfortable going back to that church anymore.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that Pastor Brown of Salt Mine Ministries was very well studied in the word of God. She is an exceptional teacher, preacher, and counselor. Pastor Brown also carries the Theology credentials to fortify her standing as a community and spiritual leader as well as role model; she has earned a degree of Th.D (Doctorate in Theology). There is a warm, caring, loving, and spirit filled atmosphere at this church. It is a small white church that sits on an inner city block that shines as an oasis in this neighborhood. I happen to prefer smaller churches, as I have attended some of the mega churches in the city and felt lost in the shuffle. At this church I am fully engaged in the Chrisitian spiritual experience. All of the members were welcoming, very nice, and inviting. I enjoyed the service and have attended several times since my first visit. I am now under serious consideration of joining this ministry. They even serve breakfast after the morning service (How cool is that?) :-)
I have to say, beginning in a small church, migrating to a very large church and settling down in a medium size church such as A Safe Place Christian Center is the best move I could've ever made for myself and my children. We are finally home!!! My daughter has become an active member of the church, on her own. My son has done the same. I'm so proud of them. I am now involved in helping with the Anniversary planning which is great. I strongly suggest visiting us to see for yourself just how great God is. He is doing great things through the congregation, from the youth to the elders!!!! The doors are always open!!! Church School begins at 9am. Service begins at 10:15am Hope you see you there!!!!
Spirit of Life Church is one of the most uplifting churches I have ever visited. I went and the pastor refused to allow anyone to be broke and destitute. He was so down to earth and made the Word come Alive. IT was sort of hard to find on the next block over from Shepard by Parker, However it was worth the hunt. The staff there were so professional and warm. My kids even loved the Childrens Church. If you like radical then visit "Spirit of Life Unleasehed' at the 11:00 hour. It was not my grandmothers church! I can't wait to attend one oftheir 3 Nights of Glory. I recommend it. Go see for yourself.
My 17 year old daughter joined a cult last summer in Greenspoint, Houston, Texas. The Pastor brainwashed her and convinced her to run away and go live with him;. She is mentally ill and was told not to use her medications or seek psychological treatment/. She also was not allowed to see her family:. She recently disappeared after the Pastor was told of these ads/. The Pastor's name is Michael Amador and his cult is New Beginnings Church of Greenspoint;. His wife is Christina Amador,. . Beware of this cult.

I'm from out of town and decided to visit one of the churches down the street from the hotel where I stayed at and was so glad I did. TOCM Church was one the best churches I have visited. The church atmosphere was wonderful and the people there greeted me with sooo much love! The pastor, J.T. Flowers, was a POWERHOUSE! I had to buy the cd because the lesson was excellent! I will definitely visit this church again when I am back in Houston!
My Husband and I went to this Church Sunday Night. It was absolutely wonderful. I am a former member of Lakewood, and I have searched so long for a good Church where I felt comfortable. We just happened upon this Church, and God did show up, and show out. We are so happy that we finally found a place to worship that we feel so good about!!! Thank you Father for lighting the pathway to Glad Tidings Assembly of God!!!
