Hello and thank you for visiting the Faith Deliverance Church of God in Christ church family. Our foundation is built on the word of God, from Genesis to Revelation, with every intent to follow God’s teachings to the body of Christ. The founder of this ministry is Superintendent Norman McDuffie, Jr. Through much prayer and fasting, he was led by the Lord to start the ministry in February, 1982. From a humble beginning of 28, we are strong and still growing. In May of 2004, the leadership made a change in the pastorate; Terence O. Hayes, Sr. was installed as the Senior Pastor and is leading the charge as the undershepherd of this ministry. In 2014, he was selected as 1 of 100 COGIC Influential Pastors. A humbling moment for Pastor Hayes indeed.
Our ultimate goal is to make heaven our home. Jesus left a great task to his disciples when he pronounced these words from Luke 19:13, “occupy till I come.” (The King James Version) We are endeavoring to do just that, to be a beacon of light in the community, offer life-changing programs, anointed bible teaching, and reaching out to the whole man to be the disciple of Christ here on earth.
Our congregation consists of families of all ages who share together in a unique blend of our spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ. “Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.” Psalm 127:1 (The New King James Version) Faith Deliverance is a compassionate and God-fearing congregation that strongly believes in letting the bible be the governing authority that guides and leads you to a complete relationship with Christ. Our focus is to train, equip, and empower the believers with the knowledge and wisdom of God to grow in the power of his might to be His effective witness.
I am very pleased to be blessed with the opportunity to pastor such a great group of Christian families. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We look forward to having you as our guest.
Pastor Terence O. Hayes, Sr., Pastor
Faith Deliverance is the place where the ministry and depth of the word of God is the focus of our future, and the path wherein we must walk and live; embodied by the word in song by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost that he gives to lift our spirits and minds above life’s challenges; and to ensure the souls of men and women are led to Christ with a desire to have a life changing experience to live soberly, righteously, and Godly in this present world.
