What we believe
We believe in the great commission and are endeavoring to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with love, mercy and compassion.
We believe there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4).
He is the creator of heaven and earth, and of all living beings. He has revealed Himself to humanity as the Father (Creator), as the Son (Savior), and as the Holy Ghost (indwelling Spirit in the church today).
(Ephesians 4:5, Revelation 1:8, Colossians 1:19)
We believe in water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sin. Through baptism we identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
(Romans 6:3-6, Colossians 2:11-14, Acts 2:38, 1 Peter 3:20-21).
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues
(Acts 2:4, Joel 2:28-32, Isaiah’s 28:11-12, Acts 17:4-6).
We believe in the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. He ministers to His people through tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy; words of knowledge and wisdom, discerning of spirits, faith, working of miracles, healing, helps and government
(Mark 16:15-18, Acts 5:16, 2 Corinthians 12:1-11)
We believe that as Christians we are to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing , are for the church today
(Mark 12:28-31; 2 Corinthians7:1; Hebrews 12:14; 1 Corinthians 12:8-10, Leviticus 19:2, Leviticus 20:7)
Pastor Alex Fallin, his wife Misty and their sons, Elisha and Samuel
About our pastor and family:
For nearly 4 years the Fallins taught home Bible studies in Cleveland, while faithfully attending FAC Maryville. During this time God began to give the Fallins a burden to bring an Apostolic church to Cleveland, TN. On January 6th 2019, the very first FAC Cleveland service was held. Since that day, the church has seen consistent growth through the same principles of home Bible studies and sharing the hope of Jesus with everyone.
When the global COVID pandemic struck in 2020, the Fallins led our church with a steady hand. Through exercised wisdom the church not only to survived, but thrived during what caused many church doors to close permanently.
The Fallin’s love and compassion for people is evident in all they do. Their desire to reach lost souls drives them, and is integral to the culture of FAC.
Pastor Fallin also serves as national Adopt-A-City Director for Missions America, and as the Tri-State Missions America Director.
The Fallin’s have two sons, Elisha and Samuel.
They invite you join us in seeing why there is a mighty church in this city!
In 2014 Alex and Misty Fallin were asked if they knew anyone in Cleveland that would be interested in attending a home Bible study. When that list grew to over 25 people, it became clear that this was the start of something bigger than they had anticipated.
The group (that would later be known as FAC Cleveland) met for the very first time in a basketball gymnasium, with 20 people in attendance. Over the next 5 years more than 70 people would be taught, “Search for Truth” in the Cleveland public library led by the Carpenters and the Ericksons, who serve as pastors of FAC Maryville. The influence of FAC Maryville was instrumental in the forming of both the Fallins and FAC Cleveland. As time progressed, the Fallins took on more and more responsibility and quickly became the sole teachers of the Bible studies in Cleveland.
Personal Bible studies are what FAC Cleveland has been built on. These Bible studies produced key leaders in the church. Bible studies and personal connection are still a crucial part of FAC Cleveland’s culture.
FAC Cleveland’s first service was held at the Holiday Inn and this would remain the location of Sunday services while midweek services took place in the Fallin’s home until April of 2020 when we held our first service in our first building. The dedicated family of FAC worked tirelessly to completely renovate our current facility. In just 30 days FAC raised money and renovated a building that was in desperate need of repair. This was nothing short of a miracle. The hard work and dedication that was put into the church facility is another key ingredient to our wonderful story.
Since securing a building, we have launched small groups and discipleship programs. Personal relationships remain at the core of who we are. The vision of FAC Cleveland is not only to build a healthy church in Cleveland but also in surrounding cities. We want to see the gospel preached to every tribe, nation, and tongue.
