About CHP

History

Pastor John A. Kilpatrick

In 2005, the Lord began to deal with me about planting a church on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. Shortly afterwards, a prophet, which I love and respect, called me and said, "John, I had a dream about you last night. I saw you standing before the Lord, and you had on an admiral's uniform. You took off your hat  and put it under your arm. The Lord was sitting behind a desk, talking to you and  said, 'Well John, I see that you've made the rank of admiral, but you don't have a ship. We've got to get you a ship.'" The prophet then told me, "That ship, John, is a church. The Lord is saying, 'You don't have a church, and we've got to get you a church.'"

After sharing the dream, he made some small talk. Right before he hung up, he said, "The Holy Spirit says to tell you that He's leaving a lantern light for you in the tree line of Mobile Bay. At first, you will have to go by lantern light, but in just a matter of time, and it won't be long, the lantern will go out; and you will have the noonday sun. Everything will become extremely clear, and you will have understanding"
After that, I was praying and asked, "Lord, what do I name this church? I don't know what to name it." The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, "What's the most important thing in your life?" I said, "Your Presence." He said, "Well, call it Church of His Presence." As soon as I heard that name, I knew that was exactly what I was going to name the church.

I started the church on January 8, 2006 in the Daphne Civic Center in Daphne, Alabama with no advertisement, and 227 people showed up on that first Sunday. We have been growing ever since and continue to see the Lord move powerfully. God has blessed us tremendously!

Church of His Presence is a church filled with people that have been touched by the power and presence of God. It is a church where people come and truly experience the sweet, glorious, refreshing, and rehabilitating presence of the Lord.

We Believe In...

God

There is only One True God—revealed in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.  As God’s Son, Jesus was both human and divine.

The Bible

The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.

Fall of Man

Although originally good, man willingly fell into sin—ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

Salvation

Every person can have restored fellowship with God through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.

Church Ordinances

We practice two ordinances:
Water Baptism by immersion and Holy Communion.

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers.

Evidence of the Baptism
in the Holy Spirit

The initial physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is “Speaking in Tongues."

Sanctification

Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers become more Christlike.  

The Church

We believe “the Church” is the Body of Christ and consists of  people  who have accepted God’s offer of redemption through Jesus Christ.

The Ministry

A divinely called and scripturally ordained leadership ministry serves the Church. 

Divine Healing

Divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today.

The Rapture

This blessed hope is when Jesus raptures His Church prior to His return to earth (the Second Coming). 

Millennial Reign of Christ

The Millennial Reign of Christ is when Jesus returns with His saints at His Second Coming and begins His  rule over earth for 1,000 years.

Final Judgment

A final judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ.

New Heavens and New Earth

We believe and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. 

Marriage

We believe in the sacredness of marriage between one man and one woman.

Tithing

We believe in the Biblical principle of tithing.
