(Matthew 16:24-25)

Who We Are

The Woodworker's Church are fellow worker's of Christ on His Mission! That being, the church exists to fulfill the Great Commission by preparing and making ready the Church for the eminent return of Jesus Christ. As fellow workers, we are to perfect the saints of God for this purpose, and to tell the world (beginning in our own town and city) about Jesus Christ, and his soon coming.

We're here to study, pray, teach, and to live holy blameless lives before Christ in anticipation for His return. The Woodworker's Church is a Full Gospel Church, who should be the beacon of the light of Christ as an end time Church-bringing salvation to many people.

Our Beliefs

The Holy Scriptures


We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God: true, immutable, steadfast, and unchangeable (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).




The Eternal God Head


We believe that God is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the Three are coexistent, coeternal, and equal in divine perfection (1 John 5:7).




The Fall of Man


We believe that man, created in the image of God, by voluntary disobedience fell into the depths of sin and iniquity, bequeathing sin’s nature and consequences to all mankind, with their accompanying loss of intended meaning and purpose (Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12).




The Plan of Redemption


We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, took our place, and with His life’s blood purchased the pardon for all who believe in Him (John 3:16; Titus 2:14).




Salvation Through Grac


We believe that salvation is wholly through grace; that no human righteousness or merit can contribute to our receiving God’s love and favor (Ephesians 2:8).




Redemption And Acceptance


We believe that, upon sincere repentance and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God through Jesus’ sacrificial death (Romans 10:6-10; 1 John 1:9).




The New Birth


We believe that the change that takes place in people at conversion is a very real one; that having received righteousness in Christ and having received of His Spirit, people will have new desires, interests, and pursuits in life (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).




Daily Christian Life


We believe that it is the will of God that those who have been born again grow in sanctification, become partakers of His holiness, and daily grow stronger in the faith, power, prayer, love, and service (2 Corinthians 7:1).




Baptism


We believe that being baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is an essential response to Jesus’ command, testifying to His lordship as Christ and King (Romans 6:4). We believe in observing the Lord’s Supper, receiving the broken bread and the fruit of the vine with joy and faith as we partake anew of the life and triumph of Christ’s Cross (1 Corinthians 11:24-26)




Baptisim Of The Holy Spirit


We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit empowers believers to exalt Jesus, to live lives of holiness, and to be witnesses of God’s saving grace; we expect the Spirit’s incoming to be after the same manner as that in which He came upon believers in the days of the Early Church (Acts 1: 5, 8; 2:4). We believe that there is one baptism into the faith and once one receives Christ as Savior and Lord they receive His Spirit at conversion (Eph. 4:4-6), and yet there are many fillings of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4; 2:17-41) with many cases through out scripture in the early church. (Acts 2:4; 2:17-41)




Spirit Filled Life


We believe that it is the will of God that believers walk in the Spirit moment by moment, serving the Lord and living lives of patience, love, truth, sincerity, and prayer (Ephesians 4:30-32; Galatians 5:16, 25).




Gifts And Fruit of The Spirit


We believe that the Holy Spirit bestows enabling ministry gifts upon believers, and that these gifts will build up the Body of Christ through edification and evangelism (1 Corinthians 12:1-11); as evidence of a Spirit-filled life, believers should show spiritual “fruit”: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance (Galatians 5:22-25).




Moderation


We believe a Christians’ moderation should be obvious to others and that relationship with Jesus should never lead people into extremes of fanaticism; their lives should model that of Christ in uprightness, balance, humility, and self-sacrifice (Colossians 3:12, 13; Philippians 4:5).




Divine Healing


We believe that divine healing is the power of Jesus Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith; He, who does not change, is still willing and able to heal the body, as well as the soul and spirit in answer to faith ( Mark 16: 17, 18; James 5:14-16).




Secomming of Christ


We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent; the certainty of His coming and the fact that no man knows the hour of His coming prompt our evangelistic efforts; that the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven, the dead in Christ shall rise, and the redeemed will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air (Matthew 24:36, 42, 44; 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17).




Church Family


We believe that it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with a congregation of believers with whom we can worship God, observe the ordinances of Christ, exhort and support one another, labor for the salvation of others, and work together to advance the Lord’s Kingdom (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:24).





Woodworker's  History

How We Began

The Woodworker’'s Church was birthed out of, and is affiliated with, NYC Full Gospel Theological Seminary.  During the spring of 2009, the seminary had been meeting at The Woodworker’s Cabinetry Shop in Naples Florida. Dr. Frank Garofalo and fellow members felt burdened to begin a Church, whose focus is to prepare its people for the second coming of Jesus Christ.

On October 11th 2009, after much prayer and renovations,   The Woodworker's Church launched it's first service in the store front of The Woodworker's Cabinet Shop.  

Our Name

Our name came about as one of our members was looking at the Woodworker’'s Cabinet Shop sign. He felt Jesus Christ was a woodworker (a carpenter) and craftsmen in what He did. That Jesus was a crafted worker for His Father-as means of salvation for the world. The member’s agreed and felt we too are His fellow worker’s (craftsman), which are to continue to carry out His mission. This seemed to be God's leading, and the birth of The Woodworker’s Church and its mission began.
