About Us       

 

      Ocoee Church of God is located in Ocoee, Tennessee and has immediate access to both Polk County and Bradley County residents. Our church is located right on 64 Highyway in Ocoee which is a four lane thoroughway that connects people to the north, south, east, and west to both Polk County and Bradley County. Also, 64 Highway connects people as far as North Carolina. Our church is located about 1 mile east of Highway 411 which is another major four lane highway that connects people from Georgia to Knoxville. Our church seats about 500 and we are located right in the center of the whitewater rafting region where the 1996 Olympic whitewater venue was held on the Ocoee River. At Ocoee Church of God, our music, praise and worship, youth and children's ministries, along with timely messages address the needs of the congregation because they are heartfelt, sincere, and are empowered through the Holy Spirit.

 

     We are a church based upon love, evidence by the unity we enjoy as a body of believers. At any given church service, you can expect to see people engage in praise and worship evidenced by the freedom our church enjoys as it regards praise and honor to God. Our altars are almost always filled with people that have needs and that desire to draw closer to God. In addition, our church provides you with the opportunity to establish new relationships evident by the growth the church has experienced over the years. This church was founded back in 1976 by my father Pastor Bob Whitmire who received his heavenly reward back in 2001. As the founding pastor, my dad believed and lived by the creed that the Ocoee Church of God was a church where "Everybody is a Somebody" and that we must be a "Down to earth church in an updated society."

 

What we Believe:

 

              Church of God is...

   The Church of God was founded in 1886 upon the principles of Christ as they are revealed in the Bible, the Word of God. It has its foundation of faith and practice in the Scriptures and the vital experience of its constituents is scripturally oriented.

       

               Foundational Doctrines....

   The Church of God subscribes to the following five foundational Christian doctrines:

  1. The inerrancy and infallibility of the Bible.
  2. The virgin birth and complete deity of Christ.
  3. The atoning sacrifice of Christ's death for the sins of the world.
  4. The literal resurrection of the body.
  5. Christ's second coming in bodily form to earth.

 

              Declaration of Faith...

   The Church of God believes the whole Bible to be completely and equally inspired and that it is the written Word of God. The Church of God has adopted the fowling Declaration of Faith as its standard and official expression of its doctrine. 

 

              We Believe:

  • In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.
  • In one God eternally in three persons; namely the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
  • That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.
  • That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all necessary for forgiveness of sins. 
  • That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. 
  • In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.  
  • Holiness to be God's standard of living for His people.
  • In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.
  • In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost. 
  • In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. 
  • Divine healing is provided for all in the Atonement.
  • In the Lord's Supper and washing of the saints' feet
  • In the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years. 
  • In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
