Our History

Our Church History literally begins with Jesus as He set forth the Early Church when He chose His twelve disciples and began His ministry.  James, the Lord's brother, with the disciples of the Early Church made an observation from Scripture in Acts 15:16-17 (quoting Amos 9:11,12) stating, "After this I will return and I will build again the Tabernacle of David which is fallen down and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up; that the residue of men might seek after the Lord and all the Gentiles, upon whom my  name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things."  

What we believe

We Believe in one eternal Godhead, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost. (Romans 1:20, 1 John 5:7)

It began in 1903 when A. J. Tomlinson, an anointed prophet of the Lord, felt a call of God to go up onto a mountain in North Carolina named Burger Mountain to pray, seeking God's face.  He did this because he was to fulfill the prophecy in Jeremiah 30:21 where the Scripture states, "...and I will cause 'him' to draw near, and 'he' shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged 'his' heart to approach unto me, saith the Lord?"
