WHAT WE BELIEVE

1

God is Three in One

We believe in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe Jesus is God’s Son

We believe that He died on the cross to pay the price for our sins – past, present, and future.

 

 

 

2

Salvation through Jesus

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” - John 3:16

To break it down, man messed up in the Garden of Eden and broke his relationship with the creator, God the Father.  But God wanted to restore that relationship with us, and the only way to fix it was to send His Son Jesus. 

3

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit

Jesus told his disciples that when He left He would send a helper, just like Him, who would live in us.

He’s our helper, comforter, advocate, intercessor, counselor, strengthener, and standby. We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.

 

 

 

4

The Word of God

We believe that God’s Word is the ultimate authority and it’s alive. It’s filled with God’s wisdom and promises and if we apply His Word to our lives we will have good success.

We trust in God for new revelation. We are always learning and growing and we are continually pursuing the things of God.

5

We Believe in Prosperity

Being saved is more than just a ticket to Heaven. It enables us to PROSPER and live the life that God intended us to live. 

Salvation includes peace, health and wholeness, favor, grace and mercy.

 

 

 

6

We are a Church Without Walls

Jesus called us to go out and spread the word of God. We believe that this is not done enough. We make it a priority to go outside of the church walls to reach the lost and broken. We hope that you will join us in doing so.

7

We Believe in Unity

We are the Body of Christ and we are called together to fulfill the plan of God for our generation. Can you imagine what the Body of Christ would look like if we all worked together? We are stronger together than we are a part! God's plan for the church is that we would be one.

8

We Believe in Connection

We NEED each other. We believe that connecting to the local church and other believers is VITAL to the life of the believer. God has given us each other. 

Proverbs 27:17 says- As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.

 

Our History

In the spring of 1981, Bob Champion, with his wife, Carol, and their children, Eric and Capril, moved to Live Oak, Fla., with a vision from God to establish a family church, a teaching center, and a world outreach center. At the same time, God began to bring together a group of people who loved God, who desired a closer walk with Him, and who could share the Champions' vision.


The un-compromised Word of God is the strength of the foundation upon which this ministry has been built. In the belief that a Christian must be knowledgeable of God’s Word -- and be a doer of the Word in order to be an overcomer in life.


The former Brim Funeral Home housed the first sanctuary, bookstore, and school situated on 1.65 acres. In 1984 the former Allbritton home located on 3.7 acres was purchased for the purpose of relocating Melody Christian Academy and expanding the children's ministry.


In September 1985, Pastor Bob and his family moved to Phenix City, Ala., to pastor a church and later to Daytona Beach, Fla., to found and pastor Victory Christian Center.


During this transition period, Frank Davis was appointed pastor of Melody. He and his wife, Amanda, have faithfully served the church since then. 


In May 1988, Melody moved into a new 8,000-square-foot sanctuary. With the addition of the 10-acre “promised land” in 1990, the church property grew to 20 acres.


In 2001 we built a brand new youth facility. The Revolution Building was the new home of our youth group and middle and high school classes.


In June 2012, Pastor Darrin Baldwin was appointed pastor. Darrin, along with his wife, Laura, are continuing to build upon the strong foundation that was laid 39 years ago.


In 2012 Pastor Darrin and Laura opened our Melody Church Thrift Store as a part of our daily outreach to the community.


In 2017 we purchased the New Life Bible Bookstore to be a blessing to the people and churches in the area. 


We continue to move forward and the ministry grows every year.
