Pastor Tim Henson - Heart of Worship Church, Parkersburg, WV

Pastor - Tim Henson

My life started in a strong Christian home. My father was a Choir Director and kept a strong faith in God. My mother was strong and constantly prayed. As I became old enough and was able to leave home, I chose not to follow after my father but instead in my thoughts I was to be successful, I was to make as much money as I could to buy the big home, fast cars, and date and marry a model. That meant I had to have a degree, so I attended and graduated from Marshall University. Even when I started excelling in these things, I found I was still lacking something and was working even harder to fulfill my dreams. 

After two near death car accidents and in one having my best friend die in my arms, that desire for a deeper meaning became more relevant in my life. It wasn't until 1987 when the Spirit of the Lord fell upon me and I accepted Christ in my life that I started to understand what that deeper calling was. 

I started in a small Church and a year or two later started as Assistant Pastor. Within 6 months the pastor fell ill and I assumed the pastor ship and have been In the Pastors ship since. It wasn't until I stopped tipping God and started paying Tithes that God started blessing my business, my home, my family and our Church. 

When we become obedient to God, He will bless us and supply our needs by His riches in Glory. I would not trade what I have with My Lord for anything in this world today or forever.

What We Believe

  • We believe in the Trinity, that there is one true living God (eternally) existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 
  • We believe in God the Father as a Supreme Being, active in creation, in providence and Salvation; that He is eternal, omnipotent (all powerful), omnipresent (all present), and omniscient (all knowing). 
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, and His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal, tangible return to power and glory. 
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Triune Godhead, that He is ever present and efficiently active in and with the church of Christ, convicting the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement, and that the Holy Spirit continually abides in the Christian as helper, teacher, and guide from the time of conversion. 
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the regeneration of sinful men; that the Holy Spirit baptizes every believer at the time of conversion into the body of Christ. 
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the regeneration of sinful men; that the Holy Spirit baptizes every believer at the time of conversion into the body of Christ. 
  • We believe that at the heartfelt repentance, sin is remitted and by exercising saving faith in Christ, the soul is made new by the Holy Spirit and freed from dominion of sin; that this is regeneration of the new birth.
  • We believe all born again Christians are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8) and should strive to enter the straight gate (Luke 13:24) always abiding in Christ, lest they become unfruitful and are cast forth (John 15:1-7) and become a castaway (1 Corinthians 9:27) and may be fallen from grace (Galatians 5:4).


  • We believe in Baptism by emersion only. We also believe in the meaning of Baptism as stated in Romans 6:3-6 and in Colossians 2: 12-14


  • We believe that Sanctification is initial at regeneration and continues progressively through the Christian experience, becoming final and complete in Heaven, as God's word has told us in John 17:17 and in 1 Thessolonians 5:23


  • We believe that Salvation is deliverance from sin through atonement of Jesus Christ as God's word describes it in 1 John 1:9, Colossians 1:20 and Galatians 1:4.
