About Our Church…
Midway Full Gospel Church is an old-fashioned pentecostal holiness church that desires to see everyone enjoy the goodness and fullness of life that comes with living a life that is surrendered to Christ.
The Bible reveals many wonderful things to us about the nature of God and His will towards humankind — and the way by which you and I can receive His blessings.
When God sent His only-begotten son Jesus Christ to this earth in order to reconcile mankind to Himself, He had an angelic band announce a very specific message to us:
“on earth peace, good will toward men”
Peace and goodness is what God wants for you and I. There are many, many places throughout the Bible that talks about God wanting us to enjoy blessings, goodness, abundance, and joy. And importantly, the way by which we connect with God and position ourselves to receive His blessings is through His Son Jesus Christ.
Consequently, it is the passion and desire of Midway Full Gospel Church to help as many people as possible find God through Jesus Christ so that as many people as possible can enjoy a life blessed by God.
In other words, God wants the best for you…and all of us at Midway Full Gospel Church want the best for you too.
What We Believe…
We believe that the Bible is God’s divine word, guide-book, and rule-book to mankind and that each of us will be judged accordingly. We believe that the Bible is God’s infallible, inspired Word (II Timothy 3:16). The Word of God alone shall be the Doctrine, Practice, and Discipline of this body of believers: it being understood that we receive it as the inspired Word of God and the Divine rule of faith and conduct.
We believe that the solution and remedy for every problem starts with establishing a committed relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
We believe that God wants to know us personally and that He wants us to know him intimately. We believe that the best possible life stems from daily worship, prayer, and Bible reading.
We believe in the “Trinity” — that there is a triune God-head, namely the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
We believe that there is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4), that he was manifest in the flesh Through Jesus Christ (I Timothy 3:16), and that his spirit dwells in believers (Romans 8:11)
We believe that man is by nature fallen from God’s grace through sin (Romans 3:23, 5:12)
We believe that the grace of God has appeared unto all men to bring salvation (Ephesians 2:8, Titus 3:5)
We believe that salvation is available to all (II Peter 3:9) through faith and obedience to the gospel, namely, repentance, baptism in the name of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost for the remission of sins, and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38, I Peter 3:21, Romans 8:10).
We believe that the believer is called to holiness and purity of lifestyle (II Corinthians 6:17-18, 7:1, Hebrews 12:14).
We believe that divine healing is still experienced through prayer and faith (James 5:14)
We believe that the gifts of the spirit should be effective in the company of believers (I Corinthians 12-14)
We believe in the imminent return of Jesus Christ to rapture his church (John 14:3, Acts 1:11, I Thessalonians 4:16), and look for that blessed hope (Titus 2:13, Revelation 22:20).
We believe that all people will be judged according to the word of God (Romans 2:16, Hebrews 9:27), and rewarded according to their deeds with either everlasting life or eternal punishment (Romans 2:5-11, Revelation 21:7-8).
We believe in God the Father Almighty. Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried and arose on the third day according to the Scriptures, afterwards ascended into heaven where He is now seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence He shall come again to judge the quick and dead.
We believe in Water Baptism and that is should be administered to every believer according to the Scriptures given by St. Matthew 3:17; 28:18; St. Mark 16:15; Acts 8:36-38.
We believe that the Blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth from all sin, and sanctifies the believer, thus making him or her eligible to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost which is given to them that obey (Acts 5:32) and the evidence of such experience shall be according to Acts 2:4.
We believe in the resurrection of the dead and the Communion of the saints, the Lord’s Supper and washing the saint’s feet. We believe that divine healing for our physical bodies was included in His suffering as mentioned by the prophet Isaiah 53:5. It is still available to all who meet conditions and according to His will (James 5:14).
We believe that all ministers should be of good report (1 Timothy 3:7-12) including Pastors, Evangelists, Deacons and Elders (Titus 1:5-7); and husbands of one wife.
We believe the Church of Jesus Christ to be a living Organism. The Body of Christ, and habitation of God through the Spirit (Ephesians 2:20-22), and that each true believer is a member of the Body (1 Corinthians 12:14; Acts 2:47).

About Our Church History…
Midway Full Gospel Church was started in 1955 by Reverend Lawrence Ragsdale and his wife Mary. At first, services were held beneath a “Brush Arbor” — an open-air framework of upright poles covered by tin sheets to block the sun or rain — until the initial church building was constructed in 1957.
The Ragsdale’s pastored the church until 1959 at which point Reverend Leroy Sewell and his wife Robbie became the pastor. The Sewell’s pastored the church for 48 1/2 years, retiring at the end of 2007. At the beginning of 2008, Reverend Lonnie Duckett became the next and current pastor.
