Preaching a living Christ to a dying world
We've Come this Far By Faith
Pioneer James Reynolds, Sr.
The late Rev. James R. Reynolds, Sr. founded the Deliverance Center in 1967 with the aid of several volunteers. In time, Rev. Reynolds' own family members have become a part of daily functions at the Deliverance Center along with several very dedicated volunteers.
Initially, the Deliverance Center helped and worked for the transformation of alcoholics and drug addicts. This focus is especially seen in its name, as being a place of deliverance from any bondage of sin.
The Deliverance Center was birthed as a local church out of this "street ministry" and practical help.
In 1969, DC expanded to include an educational facility. The first of its schools, Deliverance Bible Institute, was established to train young adults for Christian service in a three-year course. From 1979-2010, Christian Academy of Portland extended the student body and curriculum to include grades K-12. Today, Deliverance Bile Institute and the education vision of Deliverance Center is realized through Bible exchange.
From the Streets of Portland, Maine to Africa
The Gospel is for All
The church family of Deliverance Center are strong believers in mission work. In 1967, Before there was a church at 1008 Congress, Ministry Pioneer James Reynolds, Sr. served the homeless and rejected of Portland, Maine. With a warm meal, clothing and a bed Bro. Reynolds, his family and the help of wonderful volunteers spread the love of Christ. Today, that vision for practical Christianity and service is our daily ambition. Througout the past 45+, the Lord Jesus Christ has enabled Deliverance Center to teach children in a Christian School, train Christian workers in a Bible school, rescue the helpless and homeless on the streets of Portland and financialy and physically support mission work accross the world and at home.
Tenets of Faith
Here's a little about what we believe.
Every word of the Bible was given by God.
In the absolute Trinity of the eternal Godhead-Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
In the pre-existence and deity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus suffered and died as a substitue for everyone that believes and repents of their sin.
In complete salvation by grace through faith.
In the life of holiness without which no man shall see the Lord.
In Water Baptism by immersion.
In the observance of the Lord's Supper.
In tithing as God's financial plan for the church.
In the Bible revelation of Divine healing.
In the personal Baptism of the Holy Spirit as received by the Apostles.
In the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
In the Church, which is the Body of Christ composed of Spirit-filled Believers.
In a five-fold ministry to the Church for the perfecting of the Saints.
In the Bride of Christ which is Composed of Overcomers out of the Body of the Church.
In the personal and imminent return of our Lord.
In the everlasting punishment of those who reject God's plan of salvation.
In eternal life for all true Believers.
