In 2014 the Lord spoke to Elder Keith Moore about pastoring Scripture Church. After fasting and praying, Elder Moore was led to Temple Hills,MD in 2016 where Scripture Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ was re-opened at Uniqek Banquet Hall, 3130 Branch Avenue, Temple Hills, MD 20748. Pastor Moore is very passionate about the work of the Lord as he continues to share the joy of the Lord through worship, teaching and winning souls for Christ.
Our mission is to win souls for Jesus Christ. It is our belief to teach Lord Jesus Christ.
