ABOUT US ( it's about Jesus and you)
Problem: This can’t be all there is to life – there must be something more (I’m wasting my life)
Solution: At Rehoboth, you’ll find a place to explore your faith (Purpose)
If you are looking for a church home that is Kingdom-culture, join us and let's do more for Jesus together. We began as a Bible Study group in 2006 named Shema Worldwide Christian Ministries, in a meeting room of a hotel. The name shema was given from Deuteronomy 6 verses 4-5: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." We began in a hotel meeting room but we knew by God that we would be used around the world to spread the gospel. That is exactly what Jesus has done. We just didn't know how He was going to accomplish it. We didn't mind not knowing. We were ready for the work, and ultimately the rewards. We became unashamed, unafraid harvesters.
As people came to Jesus Christ for salvation in our weekly hotel meetings, we moved from the hotel to the chapel of a church where more people joined us from that community. We continued there in the chapel from 2006 to 2007 with 6 a.m. prayer services and 7 p.m. weekly Bible Study. News of the group was being spread and we we added Church Without Walls for All Nations to our name. We were energetic in those neighborhoods with outreach and evangelism with boxes of food and household goods, clothing, prayer, and even resolutions for conflicts that people were facing in the schools. God gave us increase of ministers to share the work as the increase of souls of people from many nations came to join us.
We launched as a church congregation with God's help one Sunday morning in the summer of 2007. But the hourly rent for using the main sanctuary of that church was was too much. We moved to a movie theater about one mile away where we continued to grow. We added Sunday worship services, Bible Study, Children's Ministries, and continued with outreach. Like Isaac in Genesis 26, our growth brought contention. So we moved from there to a church building were we rented a space along with separate infant and children rooms, one classroom for middle schoolers, the gymnasium, and a pastor's office.
People kept coming and exploring their faith. They found their purpose and God's plan for their lives. It's awesome when that happens to you. We continued to grow and added Friday night Youth services, which were powerful. Many young people turned to Jesus and kept bringing their friends. They needed direction, and some were dropping out of high school. They also became saved and transformed into gentle, loving people. Young people and adults from the neighborhoods would just walk over to church for worship services and Friday night fun activities. We grew fast and as God continued to give us more grace, we were faced with contentions again. We outgrew that space. So we prayed and fasted for direction. God led us to where we currently worship.
It was at our new location in Tucker, GA where the name of the church was officially changed to Rehoboth Christian Church. We have been seeking a building to purchase, so please donate to our Building Fund on our Donate page.
During the first eight years of RCC, the work was plentiful. Salvation of souls and transformation of their lives were our priorities. In those years of great, Godly evangelism we were not focused on Membership. It was not until around 2017 that God spoke to us that we should begin to make Membership one of our priorities. We have been doing that, and we are grateful to God for His blessings.
Through many days and nights of deep prayer and fasting, many early morning and late night prayer drives, we prayed and talked to God about saving people. We continued to grow and we are are still enjoying fruits from that labor even now .
People come to RCC because of the love we show them. God unites us in our weekly gatherings for the word and fellowship through our common love for Jesus Christ. One thing we believe is that community means we can’t do life on our own. God created us to enjoy life, at times endure life, and grow & learn by having sincere, meaningful relationships.
In 2021, we became affiliated with the Church of God of Cleveland, Tennessee. We love their heart for evangelism and missions, and their reliance on the Holy Spirit. Those pillars are also what are important to us and have given Rehoboth a place in the hearts of many here in Georgia and other cities and nations where RCC has been generous and evangelistic. We have co-planted several Bible schools in West Africa, some of which have become accredited Bible colleges.
Rehoboth began with almost 99% unbelievers who later became saved, baptized, and some received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Sanctification and reliance on the Holy Spirit were edified in our teachings. The gospel of Jesus Christ was proclaimed week after week and it was and is prized. Jesus showed Himself powerful with visible and miraculous healings in the lives of people who needed solutions. People were delivered from drugs and alcoholism, sexual addictons, poverty, and life issues. From diseases disappearing to people being brought back from near death, to the miracle of a paralyzed man walking again, and a boy crippled with an unknown ailment getting up from the altar in a Sunday service and walking, RCC saw Jesus work miracles. He won many to His kingdom for His Name's sake. We are still experiencing Christ's miraculous works.
God also led us to do mighty works among the homeless population of Dekalb and Fulton County over a period of about 9 years. It was hands-on, weekly ministry. We were blessed to minister to over 7,800 people from the streets of Atlanta with love and care in their spiritual and daily needs. Some were re-united with families. Some re-dedicated their lives to Jesus Christ. Some gave their lives to Jesus for the first time. Some were blessed to find transitional housing. In 2022, we are still supportive of the homeless solution but now we work through the Atlanta Missions and others.
We exist for you in three powerful ways:
Christ-full. Prayerful. Loving. Active.
We were established on the Vision of the kingdom of God set in the Great Commission by Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20.
It has been an amazing, spiritual journey with those who already have a saving relationship with Jesus and a great privilege introducing Him to those who are looking to embrace that wonderful love, truth, and eternal life.
We are resolute in our belief in the workings of the Holy Spirit of God to bring you to where you will thrive. With God's love and power, nothing is impossible.
