After seven years of ministry under the New Jerusalem Fellowship,our pastor, the honorable Apostle John Cornish Sr.was inspired with the vision St.Johns' Holiness Church.While on their way to return arental van to Wilmington,De.with Deacon Freddy Young and Bro.Terrell Kinta Cephas, the question was asked by Deacon Freddy,"What's stopping you from getting your OWN? From that point on the vision began to manifest into what is now St. Johns'Holiness Church,Inc.After sending Evang.Savannah Morris and Deacon Freddy Young,along with their families to search for a building,one was located! Thanks be to God,on May 23,1997,St.Johns' was fully chartered and ready to go forth in God. The building located by the group sent by the pastor, was once a "Dominos'Pizza." God used not only our pastor,but our General Mother,Mother Rosa Lee Cornish,Deacon Freddy Young and family,as well as Evang.Savannah Morris and family to be a great financial support to the vision of the pastor.After much hard work,our first place worship was located at 201 East Carroll Street in Salisbury,Maryland.The building was dedicated on June 15th of 1997 which was Fathers' Day. The honorable Bishop C.Cornish of Marion ,SC officated to service.BUT THEN....Prophecy after prophecy came to us stating that the building was to small for what God had for us.We as the people of God stood on His word,and did just what He said He would do.On December 31,1997 we received a bigger building.
We believe that there is only one correct Water Baptism to be administered in the church age,and that is in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.(ACTS 2:38.ACTS 8:16,ACTS19:5&acts4:12) Colosians 3:17,reads;"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord jesus,giving thanks to God and the Father by him." Water Baptism is Apolistic in orgin and practiced by the Apostles & sanctioned by Jesus Christ,(Acts2:38 &Hebrews 2:4). It is agreed by the biblical students that the Apostles & Prophets are the founders & the foundation of the church Jesus Christ himself is the Chief Cornerstone. We believe and understand that commission given by Jesus to the Apostles in Matthew 28:19,Go ye therefore,and teach all nations, baptizing then in the name of the Father,and of the Son,and of the Ho'ly Ghost : was obeyed by the Apostle Peter and the rest of the Apostles in Acts 2:38,When Peter said,"Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,and ye shall recieve the gift of the holyghost." Acts 2:39 picks it up and states,"For the promise is unto you and to your children, and to all that are afar off,even as many as the lord our God shall call.Then they that gladly recieved his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls." (Acts2:41). We believe that Jesus while he was here on earth in the flesh and after his resurrection taught the disciples and opened their understanding that they might understand the scriptures.(That they understand how to bapitze).St lule 24:25,St john 14:26 & St luke 24:46-47). Jesus said unto them,"Thus it is written and thus it behooved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, Beginning in Jerusalem." The Apostles obeyed this command, the first converts they baptized after this command was given, was on the day of Pentecost, when they baptized about three thousand souls in the name of Jesus Christ> (Acts2:41)
