A Call To Salvation - History
A Call to Salvation first began in the home of Arlene and Vernard Smith as a neighborhood Bible study in July of 1996. Soon, the growing fellowship moved into their first building located on Highway 11 in Jefferson, Georgia. Pastor Arlene Smith, ordained through ACTS International Ministries in October 1999, stepped into the role of Senior Pastor conducting A Call to Salvation’s first Sunday morning service December 1999.
As the church grew property was purchased and the construction of a new sanctuary, children’s church and fellowship area were completed. A Call to Salvation continues to walk in our Luke 4:18 mandate to, preach the gospel, heal the brokenhearted, preach deliverance to the captives, recover sight to the blind and set free those who are oppressed.
Today, A Call to Salvation continues to extend ministry to partners and community alike. Our doors are open and you have a standing invitation to join us in service Sunday's at 10:30AM, prayer Tuesday's at 9:00AM and Bible study each Wednesday at 7:00PM. Come learn, grow and experience the Kingdom of God in action.
Like Liturgical Churches We are inspired by the might, majesty and mystery of God the Father.
Like Evangelical Churches We are encouraged by the friendship, faithfulness and favor that we have as a result of a daily relationship with The Son.
Like Charismatic Churches We enjoy the passion, presence and power of The Holy Spirit.
We are an independent, non-denominational church for believers of all backgrounds. Anyone who loves to worship God, and who has a hunger for His presence, will feel at home.
The church defined
The biblical definition of the church; is a body. We as the church are members of that body with different abilities and many functions. When one part of the body is not functioning, the rest of the body is impaired. Every part of the body is necessary and each part is significant. Many believe that church is just a building. The word church is derived from the Greek word ekklesia being simply defined as "an assembly". The church is not a denomination or a building it is the body of Christ and those who have placed their faith and Jesus Christ in relationship with Him.
