Buckeye Hollow Church is an independent Holiness Church. We believe in the Trinity, Father, Son(Jesus), and Holy Ghost. We believe in shouting, running, jumping, and speaking in tongues as the spirit gives utterance in our services. We are a Bible believing church that believes in both Holiness on the inside as well as the outside. We are very conservative in the way we dress and conduct our lives.
At our church you will find freedom to worship God in the beauty of Holiness. We have spiritual gospel singing on a nightly basis. Our singers and musicians are not professionals, but the Lord blesses and anoints them. Our main focus in all things is to Glorify God and for the Lord to have his way.
Our church has always had a reputation of being a spiritual and shouting church. Even though the world has commercialized it, there is still a difference between the fake and genuine. We still have the genuine Holy Ghost move in our services and we would like to welcome you to attend!
Trinity - Triune Godhead
We believe that God is a Triune Godhead made up of God the father, Jesus the son, and the Holy Ghost. We believe that each person has their own individual role, but they all agree as one! Godthe father is the creator. He is the father of Jesus and only he knows when Jesus will be returning for his second coming. Jesus is the Son of God. He is the Savior of the world. He died for our sins. The Holy Ghost is the God that came to dwell on Earth after Jesus ascended into Heaven. His role is to convict the lost of their sins, to comfort the Saints of God, and to move upon Christians to lead and guide them.
We first find that God the father, addresses Jesus and the Holy Ghost when creating man in the book of Genesis. Genesis 1:26-27: 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him. There is further evidence in the New Testament of all three persons when Jesus is baptized in the book of Matthew. Matthew 3:16-17: 16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Here we see all 3 persons of the Godhead in the same place at the same time. God the father is speaking about his beloved son, Jesus is being baptized, the Holy Ghost is coming down in the form of a dove.
We believe that Salvation through and by the blood of Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven and Eternal life! Jesus states in John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
We believe that Salvation is free unto all men and women. Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
We believe that a confession of sins and a repentant heart is the way to Salvation. 1 John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." We also believe that Godly sorrow is the only way to achieve a true repentant heart. 2 Corinthians 7:10 states: "For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of:" For a man or woman to be saved they must feel conviction of the Holy Ghost, feel sorrow for the sins they have committed, confess to the Lord that they are a sinner, and ask Jesus to forgive them. It is that simple.
Baptism of the Holy Ghost and Speaking in Tongues
We believe that salvation comes to all that ask for forgiveness of their sins, but the Baptism of the Holy Ghost is a separate experience with the evidence of speaking in tongues. John the Baptist said in Mathew 3: 11: "I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire."
Jesus speaks several times of the coming of the Holy Ghost. Jesus says: But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify [speak] of me” (John 15:26). He said in Luke 24:49: "And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high." Again in Acts 1:8 "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
We believe that this promise of the power of the Holy Ghost is given to Christians as a second blessing after Salvation. We believe that a person must seek God for it and obey his will. They must be living a holy sanctified life in order to be a candidate for this Baptism. The evidence of the Baptism of the Holy Ghost will be evident by speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives them utterance. "And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." (Acts 2:4)
