The Church of God is the oldest continuing Pentecostal Church in American history with denominational headquarters located in Cleveland, TN.
The Alpharetta Church of God was founded on March 13, 1959 by Pastor Raymond Wilson, located on Canton Street in Alpharetta, Georgia; making it Alpharetta's oldest Pentecostal Church.
Our Pastor Dr. John C. Waters came to this church in 1975. He was ordained into the Gospel Ministry on September 12, 1966 in Duluth, Ga with the Full Gospel Fellowship International. Pastor Waters broke ground on the new Sanctuary on Mid Broadwell in 1993 and started holding services here on August 27, 1995.
The Bible tells us if we confess with our mouth that Jesus is Lord, believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead, we shall be saved.
It is our prayer for all to find a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We are here to pray with you and for you as you grow in faith.
1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, From whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the LORD, Which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is thy keeper: The LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, Nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in From this time forth, and even for evermore..
Teresa has felt the call of God since committing her life to Him in 1984. She has been active in her local home churches in Florida and Tennessee, serving in various capacities. She also taught in three different Christian preschools for over 12 years.
In 1990, God opened the door for Teresa to attend Southeastern College in Lakeland, Fla., where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in church ministries with a concentration in missions. In 2002, God once again opened the door for Teresa to attain further training, this time at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary in Cleveland, Tenn., where she graduated with a Master of Divinity degree. She has also completed various courses in the area of childcare, including the CCDE (Child Development Associate degree equivalency).
God has placed a burden on Teresa’s heart for the people of Africa. Since 1991, she has served on three short-term missions trips, which have taken her to Sydney, Australia; Zimbabwe, Africa; and Botswana, Africa. In 2001, Teresa completed a one-year internship in Zambia, Africa, where she worked with Emma’s Kids ministries and taught at the Bethel Bible College. As an appointed missionary to Zambia, Teresa moved to Lusaka and helped establish the Nyamphande Orphanage/Community School.
Active in preaching, chaplaincy, orphan’s ministry, and recently, pastoral family care and encouragement, Teresa teaches and trains leaders in various areas of ministry and serves on the board of Berea Theological University College. She is also a team member in a Lusaka church plant that started in her home. Along with serving as a team member in a church plant, Teresa is now serving as manager of the World Wide Help Africa Retreat Centre.
