Creston Pentecostal Church
Creston Pentecostal Church is an Apostolic Pentecostal church holding fast to the truths in God’s Word. Our church is active with a youth ministry, monthly evangelistic services, and a van ministry which has grown to nearly 20 children each service. The church body enjoys fellowship with one another and besides worshipping and dining together, we have periodic Family and Friends Days, a July 4th fireworks extravaganza, Fall Festival and a Christmas Banquet.
Established in June, 1968 the church was formerly Creston United Pentecostal Church and later became Apostolic Lighthouse as the church changed Pastors. In 2004, the church was renamed Creston Pentecostal Church to maintain identity with the local Creston community of Crossville, Tennessee.
In the past few years, we have been in a building program and have seen our Fellowship Hall remodeled, and our Sunday School classes and sanctuary updated. We also upgraded our sound system and built the sound room including the installation of a church projector system. We are excited about the new changes and look to the future as our expansion continues.
Our latest goal is the development of an outreach program through various media sources and old-fashioned door-to-door visitation. We want the city of Crossville and Cumberland County to know where they can come when they are in need of a spiritual touch.
The church is situated just minutes from I-40 on the Cumberland Plateau in Middle Tennessee. Crossville is a rural small town with one of the largest growing retirement populations in the United States. In conjunction, Crossville is known as the golf capital of Tennessee.

What We Believe...
The basic and fundamental doctrine
of The Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ shall be the Bible standard of
full salvation, which is repentance, baptism in water by immersion in the
name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and the baptism of
the Holy Ghost, with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the
Spirit gives utterance.
The Bible is the inspired Word Of God. It gives a true history of the creation of the heavens, the earth, and of mankind. It contains the correct prophecy of the ages to come regarding the heavens and the earth, and the destiny of man. Furthermore, there is no salvation outside of that which is contained within its pages.
There is only ONE GOD: the Creator of the heavens and the earth, and of all mankind. This One God, the I AM, is manifested (revealed) to mankind as FATHER (Creator), SON (Savior)(1 Jn.5:20), and HOLY GHOST (indwelling Spirit) (Rom. 8:11). God is a Spirit (John 4:24), the Eternal One, the Creator of all things, and of all men. Thus making Him their Father (through creation) (Malachi 2:10). The LORD is the FIRST and the LAST, and beside Him there is no God (Isa. 44:6).
There was no GOD FORMED before him, neither shall there be after Him (Isa. 43:10). Jesus is the SON of God according to the flesh (Rom. l:3). Jesus is the very God Himself according to the Spirit (Matt. 1:18-23). Jesus is the Christ (Matt. 16:16). Jesus is the Creator of all things (Col. 1:16, 17; Jn.1:10; Isa.40:28). Jesus is God with us (Matt. 1:23). Jesus is God made flesh (John 1:1-14). Jesus is God manifested in the flesh (1 Tim. 3:16). Jesus is He which was, which is, and which is to come, THE ALMIGHTY (Rev. 1:8; Isa. 9:6). To this, Jesus Himself testified when He said: “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father” (John 14:7-11).
Since it took shedding of blood for the remission (forgiveness) of the sins of the world (Heb. 9:22), God as the Father, being a Spirit, had no blood to shed; so He prepared a body of flesh and blood (Heb. 10:5), that He might fulfill the prophecy of Isa.43:11, “Beside ME there is no SAVIOR”. Thus, when Jesus was born into the world, he was Jehovah our Saviour (that is the meaning of the name Jesus), the one God of the universe, the Lord God Almighty, born as a man. This caused the angels to sing, “For there is born this day in the city of David, a SAVIOUR, which is CHRIST THE LORD” (Luke 2:11).
The Holy Ghost is not the third person in the Godhead! The Holy Ghost is the Spirit, Jesus Christ coming to dwell in the hearts and lives of those who receive him. That is why, when speaking of the Spirit, Jesus said “I will not leave you comfortless, I will come to you” (John 14:16-26; Rom 8:9; 2 Cor.13:5). So, THERE ARE NOT THREE PERSONS IN GOD, but three manifestations of the ONE GOD. God is the Saviour, and his saving name is now revealed to men as JESUS. Therefore JESUS is the name of God. SALVATION consists of deliverance from sin through the blood of Christ. This is accomplished by REPENTANCE from sin, WATER BAPTISM IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST for the remission (forgiveness) of sins, and receiving the BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, and the continuance of a godly life (Acts 2:26-41).
