Restoration Faith Assembly

Restoring Lives One Life At A Time

Restoration Faith Assembly, a place to be “restored,” began in September 2005 with only 15 faithful members at the Emerson YMCA. Our Bible Study was held at the Lewis & Clark Library. Through great opposition, but standing on the promises of God, the property at 9839 Diamond Drive was purchased. The first service in our new edifice was held on October 16, 2005.

One morning while in daily devotion, God spoke to Elder Triplett in a profound way. HE let him know that it was time for a change and that a new season was about to dawn. Something “great” was about to take place. God then revealed to Pastor Triplett “Restoration Faith.” This church would be a place of healing, salvation, and deliverance. God was going to restore unto His people everything that was lost and all that the devil had stolen. Since the new start of a new season, the church is growing and we strive to impact our community, region, and the world.

Restoration Faith Assembly is a place where people of all walks of life can be restored. This ministry has been sent to prisons, hospitals, and nursing homes. Restoration Faith is a place of healing, deliverance, and “true” restoration to those who have been wounded or who have fallen along the way. Since then, the church has been moving forward. Members have been added, gifts are coming forth, needs have been miraculously met, and the glorious presence of the Lord is with us. We here at Restoration Faith have great expectations regarding all that God wants to use us for in these last days.


What Do We Believe?

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God, written by holy men of old as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

We believe in one God who is Infinite in power, holy in nature, attributes, and purposes, as well as omniscient and omnipresent. We believe that He was revealed to us as Father in creation, as Son in redemption, and as the Holy Spirit in His grace that never leaves those who trust Him.

We believe that in Jesus dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, for it pleased the Father that in Him should all the fullness dwell.

We believe in the virgin birth. Jesus was both human and divine. He was God manifested in flesh. We believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. We believe that He ascended on high and sent His spirit, the Holy Ghost, which was poured out at Jerusalem over 2000 years ago, and it is the same Spirit that is filling the hearts of those who diligently seek Him today.

We believe in baptism in water by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and in the baptism of the Holy Ghost, speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. This constitutes the new birth.

We believe in a holy, sanctified life. We believe in divine healing, communion, and feet washing. We believe also in the glorious catching away (the rapture) of the saints when Jesus returns in the clouds in glory to take His people to heaven.

We believe that Jesus is the only saving name ... And whatsoever you do in word or in deed, do all in the name of Jesus.
