|We believe in the Holy Ghost, who was sent from God the Father and the son. That the Holy Spirit convicts and converts sinners,
dwells in the believer, keeps the believer from the power of sin and leads him to the Father through His Son - Jesus Christ.
We believe the Bible is the Word of God given by inspiration through Holy men. That in the Bible, God seeks to reveal his will to
man and man seeks to respond to God's revelation. We believe the Bible to be the final authority to any spiritual question(s) or
issue(s) that may arise.
We believe that the union of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost is revealed through His church, founded on the day of Pentecost, and
that all believers are united into one body, the Church. We believe that Christ is coming back for His Holy Church, without spot or
wrinkle, and that without holiness in spirit, body and soul, no many shall see God.
We believe in the Apostle's Creed as stated in such manner: We believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under
Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell, the third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended
into Heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Catholic (universal, one) Church; the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sin, the
resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
We believe in the Father, who is God Almighty, the Creator of
all things and the preserver of light and life.
We believe in the Son, who is Jesus Christ, God's only begotten
Son. He was human and Divine, truly lived suffered and died,
rose again from the dead, ascended on high and is coming again.
We believe that Jesus was sent by God to man, that whosoever
believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. John

CALENDAR OF EVENTS
SUNDAY SCHOOL: Sunday School is held from 10:15-10:45 a.m on Sunday mornings. Faculty involved with the teaching aspects
are Rev. Judy Wells, superintendent; Rev. Sonya Thompkins, Rev. Donna Finley, Rev. Jonathan W. Blake and Rev. Tina
Thompkins will serve as an alternate.
MORNING WORSHIP SERVICE: Love Center will be opened on this coming Sunday, 11:00 a.m.-1 p.m. The Trustee Board will
be on hand to receive tithes, offerings and assessments from auxiliary presidents, treasurers and members. The service will be
streamlined at that time. Let me make this clear, Gov. Mike DeWine's insight into May 1st reopening plan (see Gov. Mike DeWine
offers new insight into May 1 reopening plan/wkyc.com) for places of worship is as follow: Large Venues (e.g., sit-down dining,
movie theaters, sporting venues and places of worship) CAN operate under moderate physical distancing protocols. Love
Center has operated under these strict guidelines even before the May 1st reopening plan was enacted by the Governor. Therefore
we WILL resume having services in the Center. However, members who fear being in the presence of other congregants for their of
own safety may continue to stay at home. Again, I will not debate, argue or justify those who attend services at the Center, nor
those having their own opinion as to remain at home during this crisis. Those who wish to remain home, is asked to continue to pray
for those attending service in the Center, send your offerings and assessments (Pastor Paul Carrington, 5077 Arch Street, Maple
Heights OH 44137) and above all keep peace.

It is with sadness of heart that I write to inform you that my Pastor, Dad, Friend, Confidant and Church Overseer, Rev.
Lawrence Curtis Roberts, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, July 14, 2008. Words alone cannot express the
role Rev. Roberts played in my life. It was Rev. Roberts who encouraged me in the ministry at a very crucial moment in
my life. His words to me when I felt like I had made a mistake by entering the ministry, let alone pastorship was: "If God
called you - then you can't quit."
A lasting bond ensued from our meeting, and as a result of Rev. Roberts and his lovely wife, Bootsy's encouragement and
support to the Love Center ministry, we were able to build a new edifice and dedicate it in year 2003. Rev. Robert's
appear on the choir's latest CD entitled "Music for the Church," along with his wife Bootsy. He will be greatly missed by
this congregation, and we vow to keep his memory alive.
