About Christian Revival Center
Christian Revival Center is a Bible based, Apostolic church affiliated with the United Pentecostal Church, Intl (UPCI). We are a multicultural congregation that loves God and believes that fellowship with other believers is vital to Christian growth. We are excited for what God has done in our lives and we are eager to introduce others to Him; the experiences and rich fellowship of knowing Him, and the timeless teachings of His precious Word. Our Doctrinal Beliefs are founded in the Word of God.
We have lots of fun worshiping, singing and fellowshipping as a church family. We’d love for you to come join us!
CRC was started in 1982 when Bishop Curry and his family moved to Maryland from Louisiana. After many years of home bible studies and having services in rented buildings, schools, and other churches, God blessed us with our very own church building on E Lawndale Rd. Our desire is to reach those hurting by the cares of this world and introduce them to the family of God.
Our Core Values: Christian Revival Center is Kingdom minded, Spirit led and friendly. We are uncompromising on Apostolic Doctrine and we are passionate about people.
About God: There is one God who has revealed Himself as Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and Man. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9, 1 Timothy 3:16)
About the Bible: The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (2 Timothy 3:15-17)
About Sin and Salvation: Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9)
The Gospel: The saving gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose again. We obey the gospel (2 Thessalonians 1:8, 1 Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (resurrection). (1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Acts 2:4, 37-39, Romans 6:3-4)
Christian Living: As Christians, we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today. (Mark 12:28-31, 2 Corinthians 7:1, Hebrews 12:14, 1 Corinthians 12:8-10)
The Future: Jesus Christ is coming again to catch away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgement. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal death. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Revelation 20:11-15)
The Mission of Christian Revival Center is to take the Whole Gospel to the Whole World by the Whole Church. The Simple Gospel is the death (repentance), the burial (Water baptism in Jesus Name) and the resurrection of Jesus Christ (Infilling of the Holy Ghost). Our world may not be the foreign field, but it is our neighbors, coworkers, and our families.
On the day of Pentecost when the Holy Ghost was poured out, in Acts chapter 2, there were three types of people; those who were “Amazed and in doubt”(verse 12) , “others mocking” (verse 13) , and those who “were pricked in their hearts” and asked “What shall we do?” (verse 37).
Many today are in the same situation, “What shall we do?” Peter gave the answer for then and now in Acts 2:38-39 “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you and to your children and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.”
