Promised Land Pentecostal Church was birth by two United States Marines who found themselves serving together in An Nasiriyah, Iraq during “Operation Iraqi Freedom” in 2003. The Lord breathed life into an unlikely friendship for the purpose of spreading the Word of God. Here in a war-torn country a Bible fellowship was formed serving the Marines of an infantry company three times a week. On the date of our country's independence, July 4th, 18 Marines were baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Euphrates River. The deployment in Iraq came to an end, and both men returned to their homes being separated by location, but not by spirit. Three years later they became burdened by the Lord to continue the work which began in Iraq and to establish a church that would serve both those in and out of uniform. We are a multi-cultural, family focused congregation holding to the belief that God desires all people, married or single, to come together in one accord to a place of worship. Our worship includes the preaching and teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ concerning His Death, Burial, and Resurrection so as to enlighten the conscience to the Holiness of God, to feed the mind with the Truth of God, and to open the heart to receive the infinite Grace of God. In our service to Christ, we are to call sinners to repentance, lift the fallen, visit the sick, mend the broken hearted, and urge all believers to seek a Spirit filled life. It is essential that the church encourages, nourishes, cultivates, and equips the believer to live a fulfilled life in Jesus Christ in order to effectuate the purpose for which Promised Land Pentecostal Church was founded.
