Our Beliefs & Values.

.

Jesus Christ

We’re all about Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus was who he said he was, the Son of God who came and died for our sins. So, if this is your first time in church, we hope that get to know Him as we do, because He’s truly what life is all about for us!

People

We’re all about people. Every person who walks through our doors is important to us, so if you ever feel like just another number, we’re doing something wrong and I give you permission to tell me about it.

Relationships

We’re all about relationships. We hope to cultivate and grow meaningful and positive relationships between each other, but also go further by getting and growing in relationship with God. Christianity is all about a Person, and less about a set of rules. That means that we exist to be in a relationship with someone, that’s Jesus and you.

“If you’ve got a specific prayer request, please take the courage to submit it via our prayer request tab. We’d love to pray for you, so I encourage you to make use of this opportunity and allow us to serve you in this way.

SENIOR  PASTOR

Our Pastor: Demetrius E. Moffett

Pastor Demetrius “Demo” Moffett is a native of Detroit, Michigan where he graduated from the prestigious Mumford High School Class of 1981. Pastor Moffett enlisted in the United States Navy where he achieved a stellar career.

Pastor Moffett received his ministerial ordination from Church of God Ministries, Anderson, Indiana, studying Theology at the College of Biblical Studies and Grace Theology Seminary, Houston Texas. Pastor Moffett has earned a Masters of Science Management and Bachelors of Science Criminal Justice from Colorado Technical University.

Pastor Moffett serves on the Economics Development Advisory Board (City of Orange) and serves as director of “Kingdom Development Services and Eastgate Community Development Corporation” all focusing on building the quality of life in the community.

Growing up in Detroit while Young Boys Incorporated (YBI) was recruiting children as couriers of heroin, Pastor Demo knows firsthand the influence of others joining together to make a safer, better community.

Coming from a broken home,” Pastor Demo says “my father was always there. We were not without financial challenge, but the community raised the children.”

Pastor Demo living through the era of the YBI agreeing to stop soliciting those under the age of 14 for criminal activities, he said he saw a harvest of potential when he first arrived to Orange in 2010. “I made it out,” Pastor Demo said, “I know the unity of the city it can happen and know how it can be. If it worked in a city of over two million people, it can work here.”

Becoming involved in the community from the moment he arrived has been involved with several organizations from serving as the president of the Orange Branch of the NAACP, President of the Tri County Rebuild SETX Long Term Recovery Executive Board, recognized as Texas State Board of Education District 7 as Hero for Children and recently being named to the Economic Development Board for the city of Orange Texas.

Pastor Demo volunteered each week as part of the Build Great Readers Community Partnership at West Orange Stark Elementary School while working with students on reading skills, vocabulary, pronunciation and comprehension. “I enjoy helping people,” Moffett said. “I want to see Orange prosper. When the community is strong, the city is strong.”

Pastor Demo said his two mentors growing up were his father and grandfather. “My dad was my focal point,” Moffett said. “My grandfather was also my mentor. They taught me the difference between being a male and being a man.”

Sunday morning worship classes for children (1st through the 12th grade) begin at 9:30 a.m. with Children’s Time review at the end of the worship service.

You’ll find just about every type of person here – married, single, divorced, widowed – professionals, workers, retired – life-long Orange County residents and those who have just recently moved to the area. But even more important than the kind of people who go here is the kind of people who are welcome here – everyone!

Do you have to dress up to attend your worship service?

No!  Dressing up is not a requirement to worship with us at Orange Church of God-Embassy of Grace. Some do wear their “Sunday best” but you’re also likely to see someone in slacks and a casual shirt, or even jeans. We believe the most important part about Sunday morning is showing up, ready to worship God.

Can a visitor take communion?

Yes! We take communion each 1st Sunday of the month as a tangible reminder of God’s gift to us in Jesus Christ. We believe in open communion – that means that anyone who believes in Jesus Christ is welcome to take communion, whether they are a church member or not.

What are King’s Kids? What will my child do there?

King’s Kids is a Montessori-influenced program which tells Bible stories using multi-sensory tools and offers children the opportunity to form responses to the stories out of their own life experiences.  Children learn the meaning of church traditions and learn to prepare for participation in the church’s worship practices. They learn to prepare themselves and quiet their minds in order to enter into worship and relationship with God, they learn how to talk with God and they learn stories from the Bible in a way that they can understand.  Children receive Lunch after morning worship.

Do I have to belong to your affiliation to attend?

Not at all! In fact, many in our congregation come from a church background other than the Church of God Ministries (Anderson Indiana). We have many from different backgrounds. We are a “Real Church for Real People woven together” by God’s grace.

We strive to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere at Orange Church of God-Embassy of Grace.
