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.

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because it was inspired by God, the Bible is truth without any mixture of error and is completely relevant to our daily lives.

2 Peter 1:21, 2 Timothy 3:16, Deuteronomy 4:1-2

The Trinity

We believe God eternally existing in three persons the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

God the Son

Jesus Christ is completely human but, at the same time, completely God. He is the only plan for bringing people who are far from God back into a right relationship with God. He lived a perfect life, so that He could be a substitution for us in satisfying God’s demands for perfection. He defeated death in His resurrection so that we can have life.

God the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the presence of God on the earth within us.  He guides believers into all truth and exalts Christ. He convicts people of their sin, God’s righteousness, and the coming judgment. He comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts, and makes us more like Christ.


The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the only way of salvation through the forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.


Man was created to exist forever. He will exist either eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him after His second coming  is Heaven. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.

Water Baptism

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.

Romans 6:4, 1 Peter 3:21, Colossians 2:12


We believe in the divine healing of God through the anointing of with oil and the laying on of hands.

Praise and Worship

We believe that praise and worship is our response to the goodness of God. We worship corporately because we believe scripture tells us time after time that it is a valuable and necessary tool for fighting battles in the spiritual realm. We worship God because He is deserving of praise. We use instruments and any tool available as we believe they did in scripture.


We believe Holy  Communion is instructed by Jesus as a time for us to remember Him. We drink from the cup and eat the bread as a representation of His blood and body that was poured out and broken for us, so that we may be saved. We believe it is necessary for people to examine their hearts for sin before receiving the elements of communion.

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 122:166:1-2John 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
