The Anointed Body of Christ
Church is a non-denominational Christ-centered, Spirit-filled
congregation with over nine different African countries and the
United States represented.
We are located at 3901 Lawler
Road in Garland Texas.
Our goal, under the leadership
of the Spirit of God, is to build a Christ centered congregation
passionate about Godís word, prayer, worship and reaching out to
a lost world to the glory of God.
Anointed Body of Christ Church is
a community of believers
Proclaiming the message of salvation through faith in Jesus
Preparing believers for works of service.
God exists in perfect fellowship: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Christian life is not a solo experience. Believers are
called to live in love, service, honesty and meaningful
relationships with other believers. It is through our fellowship
with other believers that we experience growth and fulfillment
in our walk with the Lord.
Acts 2:42ff; 4:32-36; Hebrews 10:24
As believers, we are called to live worthy of the calling we
have received. We should live lives characterized by humility,
gentleness, patience, forbearance, love and non-conformity to
Romans 12:1-2; Eph. 4:1-3
The Lord has given us a mandate to reach out to a lost world
with the gospel of Christ. It is through our involvement in
mission that we offer unbelievers the opportunity to experience
God's transforming love through faith in Jesus Christ.
Matt. 28:19-20; John 3:16
Through prayer, we demonstrate our reliance and dependence upon
the Lord for everything. Prayer is a transforming force in our
lives. It should change us.
1 Thess. 5:18; Phil. 4:6
The Lord is worthy of worship and adoration. We are called to a
life of worship as a community and individual believers. A life
of worship recognizes and expresses the power, awesomeness and
greatness of God in every area of life.
1 Chron.16:23-29; John 4:23
(a detailed statement is available in our doctrinal statement)
We believe that there is only one God, Creator of heaven
and earth, who exists eternally in three equal persons Ė Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:1; Matthew 29:19; Deuteronomy 6:4
We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures are
the inspired Word of God, written under the guidance of the Holy
Spirit without error in the words of the original documents and
providentially preserved as the supreme authority for faith and
II Timothy 3:16-17; I Peter 1:20-21
We believe that human beings were specially created by
God to be perfect bearers of His image, but that through sin
they alienated themselves from Him. Consequently, they have
inherited a nature incapable of pleasing God and have incurred
the certainty of physical death and the prospect of eternal
Romans 3:23; 6:23
We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God and
second person of the Godhead, took upon Himself when He was
conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He is
therefore fully divine and fully human.
Philippians 2:6-11; John 10:30
We believe that Jesus Christ, being without sin, died as
the substitute for sinful humanity, and that His death is
sufficient both to satisfy the justice of an offended holy God
and to reconcile sinners to God. We believe that Jesus Christ
was raised from the dead bodily and ascended in that form into
heaven, where He is presently interceding for His own as High
Priest and Advocate.
Acts 1:9; I Corinthians 15; II Corinthians 5:20;
John 3:16; Hebrews 5
We believe that sinners are forgiven, reconciled to God,
kept by Him, and granted eternal life as a gift of His grace,
which they receive by faith alone in the crucified and risen
Savior, Jesus Christ. We believe that all who trust Him are born
of the Holy Spirit and thereby become the children of God.
John 1:12; 3:16; Philippians 2:8-9
We believe that the Church, the spiritual body of Christ
inaugurated by the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, consists solely of
those who have trusted Jesus Christ for salvation. We believe
that its members are indwelt by the Holy Spirit from the moment
of conversion and are enabled by Him to glorify the Lord Jesus
by living godly lives, strengthening one another, and making
disciples throughout all nations.
Acts 1:8; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12
We believe the Holy Spirit has endowed the church with
different gifts to be used for His Glory and the preparation of
Godís people for service. We believe that the gifts are for all
time and are still operational in the church today.
Acts 2:1-13; I Corinthians 12-14; Ephesians
We believe that Jesus Christ will receive the Church into
His presence at any time. Followed by a period of judgment
climaxed by the personal and physical return of Christ to the
earth to establish His sovereign rule of righteousness and peace
for a thousand years.
I Thessalonians 4:14-18; Revelation 20:1-3
We believe that both believers and unbelievers will be
raised from the dead bodily; believers to conscious eternal
blessedness in Godís presence and unbelievers to conscious
eternal punishment and separation from Him.
I Thessalonians 4:14-18; Revelation 20
The Anointed Body of Christ Church was formerly known as African Baptist Church of North Dallas.
The African Baptist Church of
North Dallas was founded†on New Yearís Day of 1987, as a result of the vision of Rev. Dr. Ben Nworie. Dr Nworie saw a need for Africans in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to have a spiritual base to worship the Lord in the diverse cultural ways found in the African continent.
Church Services were initially held at 4231 Maple Avenue in Dallas. The church subsequently moved to the Audelia Road Baptist Church as an outreach mission of the host church.
In 1998, the
African Baptist Church of North Dallas acquired and moved to our first property at 10051 Shoreview Road, Dallas, Texas 75238, where we remained until May 2005.
June 2005, the
African Baptist Church of North Dallas moved to 3901 Lawler Rd, Garland, Texas.
2011 the church name changed to Anointed Body
of Christ Church.
