  • HYPE Liturgical dance | MWCDayton

    HYPE DANCE TEAM Dance is a word used to describe one of the most basic ways humans express feelings and faith through body movement. Dance is said to be our oldest art form. Every culture throughout history has used dance to express religious faith and to celebrate important events in life -- birth, death, healing, natural phenomena. Sacred dance includes individual forms (private meditation) and liturgical forms. Liturgical dance has as its purpose the deepening and focusing of the worship experience; it is not merely ornamental or decorative. Psalms 149 and 150 instruct us to praise God with dance; the apocryphal Acts of John has a description of the disciples at the Last Supper circling around Jesus as he calls them to dance; Romans 12:1 and 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 bless the body as a worthy instrument. ​ Liturgical dance requires the dancer to bare his or her soul in worship. There are no words to hide behind, rarely a character to portray, no literal use of facial expression or gesture—only the abstract essence of a basic idea, text or piece of music. The body does not lie; therefore, raw, real emotions, shapes, and feelings must be wrung from the depths of the soul in each dance in worship for the dance to be the powerful conduit to God that it is capable of being.

  • Praise & Worship | MWCDayton

    Praise & Worship Maranatha services always start with prayer the reading of the Word of God and Praise and Worship. ​ Praise in the original Greek means to sing, to tell of, to give, or to confess.* In simpler terms, it means to be thankful for God’s blessings, and to declare that good news to God and to others. ​ Psalm 79:13 tells us to praise God by passing from generation to generation the knowledge of His goodness, grace, and mercy. Worship, in both the original Greek and Hebrew, convey the idea of: “to prostrate oneself, to bow down, to fall face down, to pay homage and to pay respect.”* In other words, worship is the highest form of honor and respect that we can show towards God. While worship can be done in public, its main directive is very different from praise. Worship is a direct conversation between you and God. It is highly intimate and personal. Here are some examples in Scripture: ​ Luke 17:15-16, 7:36-38 explain that by worshipping, we are putting God first in our lives. This coincides with what Jesus said in Matthew 22:35-40 when He quoted the greatest commandment from the Old Testament. ​

  • Evangelism | MWCDayton

    EVANGELISM EVANGELISM Prayer is the foundation upon which all evangelism strategies should be built. By focusing the strategy upon prayer, Maranatha's strategy is connected to the source of the Holy Spirit. Regular prayer meetings should be conducted and primarily focused on reaching the unbelievers in your communities. Organise prayer times where you confront territorial spirits in your area. We believe that we need to be very keen on prayer meetings focused on unbelievers. Bishop Truman often organizes prayer walks in the neighborhood. Tuesday, Thursday, Friday night, and Saturday morning Men's prayer. Download The Audio As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send My messenger before your FACE, which shall PREPARE Your way before You. The VOICE of one CRYING in the WILDERNESS, Prepare you the WAY of the Lord, make His paths STRAIGHT (Mark 1:2, 3).

  • Senior Saints | MWCDayton

    Senior Saints RESPECT The Bible has a lot to say about respecting those who are older. Job 12:12 says, “Wisdom is with aged men, with long life is understanding.” Proverbs 16:31 says, “The glory of young men is their strength and the honor of old men is their gray hair.” Proverbs 20:29 says, “A gray head is a crown of glory; it is found in the way of righteousness.” First Timothy 5:1-2 says, “Do not sharply rebuke an older man, but rather appeal to him as a father . . . to the older women as mothers.” The Bible also has a lot to say about caring for those who are older. Psalm 68:5 says, “A father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows is God in His holy habitation.” James 1:27 says, “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress.” First Timothy 5:3 says, “Honor widows who are widows indeed.”

  • Our History | MWCDayton

    OUR HISTORY OUR HISTORY ​ Maranatha Faith Temple Church (Maranatha Christian Fellowship) was founded in 1977, as a result of a vision from the Lord to the founder and Pastor. Dr. Truman L. Martin. "Little is much when God is in it" and God certainly was in the beginnings of Maranatha. This little congregation of only (7) seven members not including children had very humble beginnings. The church has experienced several renovations and location changes. In November of 1977, services were held in a little Cabin on Hanover St. (Dayton). Without any heat (except for that from a kerosene heater that filled the place with smoke and fumes). The little congregation decided to move services from home to home and later held all services in the home of Pastor & Mrs. Martin. Church in the Martin home was like being in a real church. The stained glass panels, the carpeting, the piano in place, even the shape of the windows gave the appearance of an Ultra-Modern Church. It was there in the pastor's home that the real spirit of Maranatha was born. The spirit of love, peace, friendliness, warmth and prayer. Mrs. Beverly Martin organized the choir and became the first minister of music. Mrs. Earnestine Lenoir became the first superintendent of Sunday School and her husband, Lee, the first Deacon. Always praying and looking for a more permanent Church home, a condemned building which at one time housed a dry cleaner and beauty shop was located at the corner of Hoover and Leland Avenues. Pastor Martin ordained and installed three deacons. The first baptism was on August 10, 1980 and the first wedding was February 7, 1981. What seemed at that time an impossible renovation project, a project of "Faith" began in 1978. On Mother's Day 1980, the church opened its doors at the new location of Hoover and Leland Streets. In 1985, the second renovation project was completed a Children s Church was formed. A baptism pool was added after a building fund project in 1988. Due to continued growth and prosperity two Sunday morning services were held beginning the first Sunday in April 1990. Because this did not meet all the needs of the congregation, on October 6, 1991, the congregation moved to a new home at 4501 Wolf Road. The congregation has continued to grow and within six months the new sanctuary was filled and we now have two Sunday morning services, again. In addition, to fulfill the vision that the Lord has placed in the Pastor's heart, in 1993, the church purchased 23.1 acres of land adjacent to the church. The vision has begun answering the vision that God has placed in the hearts of hope, and determination to press on in the quest set before us. Key Milestones: •1981 Maranatha Faith Temple changed to Maranatha Christian Fellowship •October, 1991 purchased new church building at 4501 Wolf Road. •1993, first missionary trip to Africa •1993, Maranatha purchases an additional 23.1 acres of land adjacent to the Church •1996, Mortgage paid in full •1998, Maranatha Family Youth & Cultural Center construction began •2001 Maranatha Family Youth & Cultural Center construction is completed.
