HEALED after he was given up to die. His assignment is to teach believers about their rights and privileges in Christ including divine healing.

Our church began from a bible study group that was formed by Pastor Holmes in March of 1976. These bible study classes were held at Triumph the Church and Kingdom of God in Christ, 134 Oak St., Chester, South Carolina, with the permission and blessing of the pastor. At that time, Pastor Holmes was still a part of the Deliverance Evangelistic Center Inc. (headquartered at 621 Clinton Ave., Newark NJ.) under the leadership of Rev. Ralph G. Nichol. In August of 1977, the Deliverance Evangelistic Center Inc. held a "southland regional convention" at the Township Auditorium in Columbia, SC. At the close of this convention God led Pastor Holmes to begin a new independent work (which would later be called Full Gospel Miracle Tabernacle). While preparing to start this work, Pastor Holmes continued to have bible study as well as Sunday night services at Triumph the Church and Kingdom of God in Christ in Chester, SC. In addition, Pastor Holmes traveled locally between Chester and Rock Hill, SC, and Charlotte and Gastonia, NC conducting healing services. In January of 1978, Pastor Holmes conducted a 3 night divine healing crusade at the White's Chapel Church of God in Gastonia, NC. This "3 night meeting" lasted approximately 5 months. Through these services many were saved and healed. Tremendous miracles of healing took place. While the meeting was going on in the month of April, Full Gospel Miracle Tabernacle was officially registered with the Secretary of State of South Carolina and the "independent work" had begun. Sometime during the month of May, the healing services at Whites Chapel Church of God came to a close. However, the Lord led Pastor Holmes to open a church in Gastonia, NC. We leased a building which was formally a nightclub, and converted it into a place of worship. Finally, on Sunday, September 15, 1978, we had our first service. We also continued having our Sunday night services in Chester SC, which continued through December 1978. In 1980, we purchased a tent and began conducting tent services. In 1983, Pastor Holmes took the tent to Beaufort, SC for 8 days in the month of May. In February of 1984 we opened a church. This was the beginning of the establishment of the church in Beaufort, SC which opened the first Sunday of March 1984 at the Battery Creek High School. In 1988, we conducted a fellowship conference (our annual campmeeting) at the Unity Baptist Church in Columbia, SC. At that time, God began dealing with Pastor Holmes concerning our ministry relocating from Gastonia, NC (our headquarters church) to Columbia, SC. In October of the same year, the Lord directed Pastor Holmes to change the name of our church from Full Gospel Miracle Tabernacle. As of January 1989, our church name became Full Gospel Word & Worship Center. Pastor Holmes continued to pray and seek God about the timing of our move from Gastonia, NC to Columbia, SC. In March of 1991, the Lord spoke to Pastor Holmes saying, "In the fall of next year move." On October 25, 1992, we had our first service at our new and present location, 6015 N. Main St., Columbia, SC. In 1995, we purchased property in Beaufort, SC, located at 21 Bruce K. Smalls Dr. (Grays Hill). On September 30, we dedicated this facility and had our initial service. Presently, this is still the home of our Beaufort branch of Full Gospel Word & Worship Center. We are one church in two locations.

Do not FEAR. Do not PANIC! God is still on the throne and His Word has not, will not, and can not CHANGE!! Continue to stand on Psalm 91 and ALL of God’s promises!

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:1-16‬ ‭KJV‬‬

[01/20/20]   “The value that you place on God and the Word of God is the value that you place on your life!” -Pastor Dana A. Holmes

[12/25/19]   “Blessed be the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the Comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NKJV)

During this holiday season, many people are experiencing great joy, while others are experiencing deep sadness for various reasons.
I want to take a moment to pray for those whose Christmas is NOT so Merry...

Heavenly Father, God of all comfort, I pray that you minister by your Spirit to all those that are experiencing grief, sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, and/or any other emotion that’s keeping them from experiencing your great LOVE, JOY, and PEACE. Help them to know that you care, and that you’re always looking out for them, that you’ll never leave them, forget them, or forsake them.
I pray that they sense your presence and your peace even now, in the mighty and incomparable name of Jesus! Amen

Have a blessed, spirit-filled Christmas!!
-Pastor Dana A. Holmes

Oh give thanks into the Lord, for He is GOOD!! Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
