On February 19, 2003, God ordained the start of a ministry in the hearts of Pastor Barry L. Townsend, Sr. and devoted wife, Praise and Worship Pastor, Linda G. Townsend. This church was outreach to spiritually dying men and women in this world. Since then, God's word has drawn many faithful members and the Pastors have obediently continued to do what God has instructed them to do. Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV) declares "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven." After much prayer and fasting, the season for the old church name was over. In January 2012, the ministry was renamed "Elevation Church." We remain a progressive, bible-based, teaching and love-on-you church. Our purpose is that......
"As God moves us from level to level, we will be faithful to His call and move when and where He directs. Our prayer and desire is to be used by God for the good and for His glory."
To provide understanding on how to evangelize as we go.
To create an environment that makes everyone feel welcome.
To elevate each member by teaching him/her the true word of God as
it is written in the Bible.
To ensure that deliverance is not an event, but a continual manifestation of God in our midst.
To provide a non-traditional place to worship where the spirt of the Lord flows freely and the word of God reigns.
To facilitate the process of allowing God to change us from who and
where we are to who and where He has called us to be. We aim to reach our full
potential by going higher in Christ.
