Our Mission & Vision
Our vision and mission is to help connect people to faith
We want to be a beacon of hope for North Central West Virginia. We believe Jesus has a plan for everyone – and that includes you!
Mission & Purpose
Jewel City Church is not about a building or a place. It’s not about fancy lights or a musical style. Our church isn’t designed to lift up what we do at all, Jesus is the focus of everything you will find here. We exist to serve others and point others to Jesus. We don’t give for the recognition we give out of gratitude for what has been done for us. You can’t out give God. We also realize there was only one who was perfect and that’s why we follow Him, come as you are. At Jewel City Church we realize we have been shown grace and mercy and that is why we feel burdened to be compassionate for others and make a difference in our community. We use any means necessary to reach our community, not for a church but for Christ. Jesus changes everything.
What To Expect
Our Beliefs & Values
Jewel City Church is a Bible-based church that believes that Jesus Christ died on a cross for our sins.
God the Son
God the Holy Spirit
We believe in water baptism by immersion as is commanded to us in scripture. The act of baptism does not bring salvation but its a command of Jesus that should be followed as an outward sign to others of an inward decision after repenting and accepting salvation.
Praise and Worship
Jesus Changes Everything

Our Team & Leadership
Our Pastor: Robert Shingleton
Robert Shingleton began Jewel City Church over 25 years ago with a small group of believers in a garage. Over the years he has been part of a move of God in the Meadowbrook area. God has blessed this church, as a result, he has seen lives changed, addictions broken, families restored and new believers come to Christ. Robert and the rest of the team believe that the best days of JCC are ahead.

Why Do We?
Worship So Joyfully?
Worship is joyful and reflects both our appreciation to God and His Son and our love, joy, and peace found in our salvation. (Psalms 122:1; 66:1-2; John 4:23-24) “And be not drunk with wine wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing, and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” Ephesians 5:18-19
Clap and Lift Our Hands?
The act of clapping our hands is a form of praise which is mentioned frequently in the Scriptures. “Oh clap your hands all you people; shout aloud unto God with the voice of triumph.” Psalms 47:1 Lifting our hands is also a form of praise. More then fifty times in the Psalms the work translated “praise” means to extend the hands in praise. “Thus will I bless Thee while I live, I will lift up my hands in Thy name.” Psalms 63:4 “I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands without wrath and doubting.” I Timothy 2:8
Pray for the sick, anoint with oil, and Laying Of Hands?
“Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.” James 5:14-15 “And these signs shall follow those who believe: In My Name they shall… lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.” Mark 16:17-18
Dance Before the Lord?
“Then David danced before the Lord with all his might, and David was wearing a linen ephod.” 2 Samuel 6:14. “Let them praise His name with dance; let them sing praises to Him with timbrel and harp. Psalm 149:3. “A time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to morn and a time to dance.” Ecclesiastes 3:4
