The book of Acts records several instances (Acts 2, 4, etc) where the church as a body ministered to the needs of people. The Ministry of Helps or Care is a vital one to the body of Christ. The love of Christ is demonstrated in a practical way when the church can feed persons; take care of the widows and so much more. Persons serving in this area of ministry are responsible for the distribution of items such as food and clothing. This arm of ministry works closely with the Outreach and Evangelism Ministry.
Prayer Force Ministry
The Ministry of Believers Faith was established upon prayer. It is the goal of this ministry to continually train, equip and raise up prophetic intercessors and prayer warriors who will stand in the gap for the local church, the body of Christ, nations, governments and the world at large.
Corporate prayer is held every Saturday morning at 5:00 AM. However, the doors of the sanctuary are always opened for prayer.
Technology changes daily and is constantly on the cutting edge. The church must be present and vocal participants in this shift. The Media Ministry therefore is vitally important. Our Media Ministry comprises Publications, Graphics and Audio and Visual Media. Persons serving in this area of Ministry are responsible for publishing the gospel of the kingdom of God as ministered by our pastors through every form of media, print, audio and video mechanism.
The Ministry and our Pastors can be followed on Face book, You Tube, My Space , Streaming and through our websites.
Mending The Marriage Ministry
Sessions promote teachings on God’s plan for marriages and give effective tools to couples for improving their relationship with each other and God.
“Mending The Marriage” is a ministry which was birthed in the hearts of Apostle Edison and Prophetess Mattie Nottage, affectionately called Dr. Love and Judge Mattlock, respectively.

Additionally, the ministry facilitates annual Valentine “Spice up your marriage “dinners, boat cruises and retreats at local beach front hotels. Doctor Love and Judge Mattlock, participates in candid discussion on marital issues including sex, money ,communication and the bond of intimacy. These sessions allow Pastors Nottage to share their personal experiences, entertain questions and provide answers and advice and participate in games in a relaxed, non threatening atmosphere . After each interactive session, couples leave encouraged, motivated, rejuvenated and in a spirit of unity.
The single and satisfied ministry is geared towards empowering individuals to embrace their season of singleness. In addition, it promotes and encourages developing wholeness and an intimate relationship with Christ which will only be enhanced, whether the individual is single or eventually gets married.
