****RESPONSE TO COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS)****
 
 
Compassion Church Family,
 
If you have been around Compassion Church recently, you know that we want our church to be known for loving Morristown and the surrounding communities. The current outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a serious and real threat to people in our community and around the world. Particularly in this time of uncertainty, how we respond in love to our community will reveal our faith in Jesus as well as the value we place on human life and the vulnerable people in our community. Would you join us in stepping into this season not from a mindset of panic, but of faith, love, and service?
 
Services Updates:
Combining recommendations from county and state agencies with the President’s Task Force, as well as from the leadership of our church, Compassion Church has decided to postpone in-person services until further notice. Online services will always stream via Facebook & YouTube (No YouTube account necessary. Simply search for Compassion Church Morristown to find services). Stay tuned for updates to our Sunday morning service plans in the near future.
 
For the next few weeks, we are going to honor our government’s request to practice “social distancing” physically. With your help, we think it is possible to be “socially distant and spiritually connected.” The church has never been about the building anyway. Now, we have an opportunity to prove that! Also, this will be a great opportunity to engage your friends and neighbors by sharing our online videos and likely, online services with them.

Can I still give tithes/offerings?
 
Yes! Please do continue your contributions to the Kingdom of God. We’re still doing outreaches, taking care of people, and anything our church building needs, even while being away. You may give 2 different ways:
1. Click the “Give” button here online and do a secure and quick account. 
2. Mail them in to P.O. Box 1373 Talbott, TN 37877
 
 
What’s next?
The church is still functioning because the church is YOU! Our goal is that while we may not be meeting in person for services, we will continue our rhythms of faith as best as we can.
We will do our best to communicate with you regularly to keep you informed of any developments. Keep this website handy, like us on Facebook, Subscribe to our YouTube channel, and follow us on Instagram.
 
Let’s continue our faith in God, place our full trust and hope in Jesus, and love our community like never before.
 
Blessings!
Pastor Travis Mills

THERE’S A PLACE FOR YOU!
 
 
 
 
What We Believe
 
 
The Bible:
We believe that the Bible is verbally inspired of the Holy Spirit. (2 Timothy 3:16 and 2 Peter 1:21)
 
The Trinity:
We believe in triune Godhead: one God existing as three separate and distinct persons. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are eternally self-existent and function as one entity. (Matt. 3:16, 17; 28:19; John 14:16-17; 26;15:26; 2 Cor. 13:14)
 
Jesus Christ:
We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. We believe that He was conceived in the virgin named Mary by the Holy Spirit. Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected from the dead. He has ascended to heaven and now at the right hand of God as our Intercessor. (Luke 1:26-35; Matthew 1:18-25)
 
Sin:
We believe that all of us have sinned and come short of God’s glory and therefore, repentance is not only commanded by God but necessary for the forgiveness of our sin. (Mark 1:15, Luke 13:3)
 
Salvation:
We believe that our justification, regeneration and New Birth are made possible through our faith in Jesus’ blood. (Roman 5:1; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 1:23)
 
Holiness:
We believe that Sanctification is scriptural and that it is brought about through faith in Christ’s blood,through the washing of God’s Word and through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Holiness results through a daily process of commitment. (Romans 5:2; 1 Corinthians 1:30)
 
The Holy Spirit:
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. (Acts 2:44; 10:44-46)
 
Spiritual Gifts:
We believe in Spiritual gifts and that they should be operative In the church. (1 Corinthians 12:1, 7, 10, 28, 31; 14:1)
 
Water Baptism:
We believe in water baptism by immersion as a testimony of our Conversion. We should be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as Jesus said. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 1:9)
 
Healing:
We believe that divine healing is provided for us in the atonement. (Matthew 8:17; James 5:14-16)
 
Communion:
We believe in The Lord’s Supper as a reminder of Christ’s sacrifice. (Luke 22:17-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
 
Return of Jesus:
We believe in the pre-millennial second coming of Christ. Jesus will first resurrect the righteous dead and catch the saints away and then He will reign on the earth for a thousand years. (1 Corinthians 15:52; 1. Thessalonians 4:15-17; Jude 14,15; Revelation 5:10)
 
Judgement:
We believe that eternal life in heaven awaits the Saints and that eternal punishment awaits the wicked who have rejected Jesus Christ. (Matthews 25:46; Luke 18:30)
 
Marriage:
We believe in the sanctity of marriage as established by the Bible. That God created marriage, and that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Ephesians 5:22-33; 1 Corinthians 7:10-16).
Mission Statement
 
 

We are “striving for the radical reflection of God’s love!”


In Jesus’ teaching of the “Good Samaritan”, He reveals to us that Christianity is a personal relationship with Christ in which we Catch, as a mirror does, God’s love for humankind and then reflect it back into the World. Compassion Church strives to know God intimately and to make Him known to others in a relational way.

 

The Multi-Dimensional purpose of our church is discovered in the book of 

Acts 2:42-47. This is how we have based our ministry at Compassion Church. 

» Worship through which we grow stronger. 
» Ministry through which we grow broader.
» Discipleship through which we grow deeper.
» Evangelism through which we grow larger.
» Fellowship through which we grow closer. 

 
 
PURPOSE
 
 
 
 
One by one, we seek to reach individuals through our relationships with each other. No matter who you are or what you have been through in your life, we want you to know that when you walk through the door of our church, you are loved and accepted.
 
 
Compassion Church exists to become a voice and a family that crosses every generational, racial, and socio-economic barrier by ministering the Gospel in a clear and effective way, and by seeing people restored from all walks of life. This is all done by the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

TRAVIS & NOELLE MILLS
 LEAD PASTOR                 
 
 
Pastor Travis was born in Knoxville, TN and raised mostly in Jefferson County where he went to school and graduated. While in school at Jefferson County High, he was involved with FCA and teaching at church after getting saved at the age of 15 and filled with the baptism of the Holy Ghost at 16. He then went to Tennessee College of Applied Technology, where he graduated with a diploma in Graphic Arts and Photography. Two years later he met the love of his entire life, Noelle. Noelle was born and raised in Morristown, TN and graduated from Morristown East High School. They married in May of 2011. Shortly after, Travis heard the strong, irrefutable call of God to not only teach and be a youth leader but to preach the hope and power of Jesus Christ. He began to preach at every opportunity and share the Gospel and power of the Holy Spirit. After serving Word of Life Church of God and Compassion Church as a youth pastor for a total of six years, he was then called to the role of Lead Pastor of Compassion Church. Pastor Travis has a sincere passion and burden to reach the lost and to encourage and empower Christians through an active relationship with God, faith, and the Word of God.

At Compassion Church, we believe that giving is a continuation of worship!
 
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,”
Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.
