Transform Our World
Transformation: As a Transformational Church, we believe in impacting the spheres of business, government, healthcare, entertainment and education. We apply the principles of the Dr. Ed Silvoso’s “Two Banks of the River;” The Five Pivotal Paradigms and Prayer Evangelism.
The Five Pivotal Paradigms are:
- Discipling Nations not just Individuals (Matt. 28:18-20)
- The Marketplace is the heart of the nation and has been redeemed by Jesus; it must now be reclaimed (Luke 19:10)
- Labor is worship; and every Believer is a minister (Luke 10:3-4)
- The Kingdom must go where darkness is for Jesus to build His Church (Matt.16:18)
- The premier social indicator of transformation is the elimination of systemic poverty (Rev. 2:9)
4 Steps of Prayer Evangelism (Luke 10:5-9)
- Bless-Speak Peace (Vs.5)
- Fellowship-Get to know people (Vs.6-8)
- Minister-Heal the Sick (Vs.9a)
- Proclaim-The Kingdom of God has come to you (Vs.9b)
Outreach: Reaching God’s People
Fish and Loaves Feeding Ministries
In the ongoing establishment of Impact Church, we started our “Fishes and Loaves” feeding ministry in the Fairgrounds Plaza and continued feeding literally thousands of meals over time. Not only did we feed people with food, but we prayed with people to which many persons were also got healed and delivered from drugs and alcohol, as well as have their families restored through the church. Not only that, but along with the feeding ministry, the desire to build a Community Clinic to serve the healthcare needs of the people began to roll out. Medical Doctors such as Dr. William Anderson and Dr. Ingrid Lopes from the nation’s number one Osteopathic Medical School, Touro University, came to help and volunteered their time. Impact Church’s members, Dr. Joyce, Suzette Goodwin, Art Goodridge, Julia Neal and others would serve meals and collect data to see what were the number of people who needing medical services. This outreach ministry sustained for a good while until county bureaucracy got in the way. But God may have new opportunity for us now.
Flippin’ Fridays and Church Without Walls
Nonetheless, after noticing violence rising in the community, Holy Spirit led us to start the “Church Without Walls” ministry. Each Wednesday evening before Bible study classes took place inside of the Church; we were having church outside, praying for and teaching people in the Word of God. We ministered to hundreds of men and women each week. Many still testify of being free from addictions, gainfully employed, families reconciled, children doing better in school and life being better altogether. Although we only see a few of them on Sunday mornings, they have declared that, “Wednesday evening is their church time.” We continue the Church Without Walls ministry to this day. Also along the way, our evangelistic staff, Pastor Landon Goodwin, Sister Alicia Roundtree, Mother Ann, Lauren Harris, Anna Gil and others have done “door to door” campaigns to bless and reach the families in the community.
Impact Bible Ministries steadfastly shows to love families, through Annual Winter Carnivals, Outdoor Summer Worship Series, Flippin’ Fridays (hot dog and burger give-aways), Vacation Bible Schools and Family Fun Days. Our heart is to be effective and relevant for living life every day. With solid Bible instruction, consistent community engagement and being “socially minded,” we have a world vision to make life better for God’s creation, His people. Today through live streaming and social media, Impact’s messaging with the gospel of Jesus Christ is going forward to reach the local community, the states across America and the nations of the world.

Discipleship: Teaching God’s People
The weekly teachings and foundational Biblical classes and study are insightful, intensive and promote accuracy in the Word of God. The Transformed life can apply the Biblical principles each day wherever they are. We believe by living out and applying the Word of God, it enhances every area and aspect of a person’s daily existence.
