OUR LEADERS - Apostle Dennis & Pastor Paulette Powell

Apostle Dennis Powell was born in Panama City, Panama. He accepted the Lord as his personal savior at 9 years old. It wasn’t until 2007, when the Lord separated him in Martinsburg, WV that he completely sold out his life for the calling. Apostle Dennis is the Senior Pastor of Heaven on Earth Worship Ministries located in Laurel, Maryland. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from the North Carolina College of Theology. He is submitted as a “son” to Apostles Daren and Valerie Phillips of Christ United Church in Loganville, GA and Apostles Gildo and Cecelia Forcheney of Cativa, Panama. He enjoys playing and listening to music, traveling to other countries and it is his dream to share the gospel around the world. Apostle Powell is married to Pastor Paulette for over 17 years and together they parent 4 natural children and are spiritual parents to many. Most of all, Apostle Powell loves to talk about the Holy Spirit. His favorite scripture is John 4:24 “God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship him in Spirit and in truth”.

OUR HISTORY

In 2007, The Holy Spirit spoke to Elder Dennis Powell about starting Heaven on Earth Worship Ministries. It took 2 years to birth, but on Wednesday, April 1, 2009, HOEWM gained favor with Resurrection Church in Silver Spring, MD and started meeting for Bible Study. Pastor Dennis and Pastor Paulette were ordained Sunday, May 17, 2009 and charged to "always remember". Remember where they came from and remember to love people. Soon after on July 5, 2009, we held our first Sunday Service in Greencastle Elementary School in Silver Spring, MD. In July 2014, the Lord blessed us with our current location. In April 2016, Pastor Dennis was ordained as an Apostle of Heaven on Earth Worship Ministries. 

OUR BELIEFS

We believe the Holy Bible as the inspired Word of God, without any error, the all-sufficient authority in matters of faith, doctrine, and Christian living. (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Corinthians 2:13)We believe in one God, eternally existing in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:18&19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, and that He is true God and man. He died on the cross for our sins. He rose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father and is now our High Priest and Advocate. (Luke 1:26-35; John 1:18; Isaiah 7:14; 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4; Romans 4:25)We believe that man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and therefore lost. Only through regeneration by the work of the Holy Spirit can man's salvation and Spiritual life be obtained. (Romans 5:12, 18)We believe that eternal salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from man's works, and is possessed by any and all who have faith in and receive Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. (Ephesians 2: 8-9; Hebrews 9: 12, 22; Romans 5:11)We believe that baptism is by immersion and the Lord's Supper is a memorial to His suffering and death on the cross. These are ordinances to be observed by the church in its present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means for man's salvation. (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2: 34-36; 19:1-6; 1 Corinthians 11:28-32)We believe in the personal, bodily, imminent, and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ and that His Second Coming inspires believers for dynamic and zealous life and service for Him while waiting for His return. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, the everlasting blessedness of the saved in heaven (John 5:24; 3:16), and the everlasting punishment and separation from God of the unsaved in hell. (Mark 9:43-58; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 20: 10-15)We believe in the operations of the gifts of the Spirit as enumerated in 1 Corinthians 12-14, as manifested in the Early Church.

COVENANTED RELATIONSHIPS

HOEWM is covered under and covenanted with- Christ United Church, Inc. in Loganville, GA  under the leadership of Apostles Daren and Valerie Phillips and Triumphante de Restauracion in Cativa, Panama under the leadership of Apostles Gildo and Cecelia Forcheney.Building personal relationship with God has been the consistent message since 2009, and will continue throughout all teachings. We are an Apostolic Ministry in pursuit of establishing the Kingdom System in the Earth. Apostolic Ministries are relational ministries, meaning covenant is inevitable in this setting. Thus we need individuals who will be willing to become covenanters who make covenant and preserve covenant. A covenant is as solemn agreement between members of a church to act together in harmony with the precepts of the gospel. In an Apostolic Community, the premise and the maintenance of Covenant is found in the Word of God. The scriptures teaches us that when we covenant with one another we should keep our word and exert 100% of our will to keep our part of the agreement. It teaches that the dynamics of sustaining and maintaining covenant is 'Integrity'.  Covenant is 100% equal giving and equal receiving. The characteristics of a Covenanter are:1.  Covenanters are devoted to Apostolic Teaching 2.  Covenanters are faithful to the fellowship 3.  Covenanters are devoted to the fellowship 4.  Covenanters are devoted to the breaking of bread 5.  Covenanters are givers 6.  Covenanters understand that it is their responsibility to support the Ministry financially. As a covenanter of your local assembly there must be evidence of your treasures in that local Church. At the end of every service, we close with - "By this shall all men know that we are His disciples, if we have Love one for another.  Its better when we do it together. We are doing great things in the Earth because our great God in Heaven has given us authority in the Earth and we will never forget that Heaven rules, Kingdom rules!  Be it done unto us O' Lord according to thy Word.
