History of MFC.
Restoration of lives, Isaiah 61:1-4
Training disciples to minister to others, II Timothy 2:2
Edifying and strengthening people through the local church, I Corinthians 15:58
Our Values that enable Focus...
Fellowship with the Lord through continual prayer, I Thessalonians 5:17
Living lives of obedience without compromise, I Samuel 15:22
Maintaining a spirit of excellence with all the Lord has instructed, I Corinthians 4:2
Distributing finances and resources to others in need, II Corinthians 9:8
Going to the lost of the World, through evangelistic Home Cells, Acts 20:20
We believe the scripture of the Old and New Testament to be the inspired Word of God, presenting to us the complete revelation of God’s will for the redemption of mankind, and constituting the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice. (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21)
We believe that God is a Trinity, in unity manifested in three persons: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 3:16-17)
We believe that man is created in the image of God but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. (Romans 5:12, Romans 3:23)
We believe that salvation is made possible through the meritorious work of Jesus Christ on the cross and that we are saved by faith through God’s grace. (John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9)
We believe that the true church is the body of Jesus Christ, Jesus himself being the head. It is made up of all true believers that witness a born again experience. (Colossians 1:18, Ephesians 2:19-22)
We believe that God calls men and women to serve in the five-fold ministry, and specifically endues the one called with the talents and abilities peculiar to that office. Under no circumstance should anyone be set apart to ministry unless the calling is distinct, evident, and confirmed by the Presbyter. (Ephesians 4:8-13)
We believe that water baptism is by immersion and is a direct commandment of the Lord for all believers. The ordinance is symbolic of our identification with Christ in his death, burial and resurrection. (Matthew 29:19, Romans 6:4,Colossians 2:12)
We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a gift from God and is available to all believers. The baptism in the Holy Spirit is a second work of grace received after salvation, the initial sign of which is speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance. (John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, Acts 2:4)
We believe that sanctification is a definite yet progressive work of grace in the life of a believer, beginning with the new birth and consummating at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (II Corinthians 3:18, II Peter 3:18, I Thessalonians 5:23, Hebrews 12:14)
We believe in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper. In a real way the presence and power of God is revealed in communion. We neither believe transubstantiation, nor consubstantiation, but believe the Lord is in the communion in a real and personal way being received by the believers. (I Corinthians 11:27)
We believe that healing is part of the atonement and can be appropriated by faith in Jesus redeeming work. (Acts 10:38, I Peter 2:24)
We believe in the resurrection of the just at the return of Christ. We further believe that the righteous dead is in the presence of God until the resurrection. (I Thessalonians 4:16-17, I Corinthians 5:8)
We believe in a visible return of Christ and a literal catching away of the church to meet the Lord in the air. Inasmuch as there is great dispute in the body of Christ concerning the actual placement of this event on the calendar of God, let it be stated that we believe in a pre-tribulation catching away of the elect. Let it further be stated that the doctrine of the rapture is not a point of fellowship in this church or in the body of Christ. (II Thessalonians 2:7, I Thessalonians 4:16-17)
We believe that one who dies without Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost, destined to literal hell with no further opportunity of repentance. (Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 19-20)
We believe in the tithe, recognizing that tithing existed before the law, and during the law, and after the law. Jesus Himself commended the tithe. The writer of Hebrews establishes the tithe as New Testament practice. Tithing is representative of our personal commitment to the Lord and is a reflection of our covenant relationship with Him. (Genesis 14:18-20, Malachi 3:10, Matthew 23:23, Hebrews 7:8)
MFC Ministries Inc.
Morgantown Faith Center began in 1998 with a salvation from a home visit and grew quickly into a home Bible study. The house to house meetings soon became a vibrant church on fire for God. In 2006, Morgantown Faith Center reorganized and became MFC Ministries, Inc., a 501(C)(3) tax exempt non-profit corporation, with Morgantown Faith Center being a registered trade name still used for the conduct of worship services and similar activities. Continued growth caused the ministry to move several more times to a location that would accommodate the ministry’s needs and now includes two campuses. In that time, the pastoral anointing transitioned into an apostolic gift to set order and guide other leaders and their giftings to fulfill their destiny.
Since the beginning of this ministry, we have committed ourselves to fulfilling our responsibility to be accountable to God who has entrusted this work to us; to honor those who support MFC Ministries Inc., and to comply with all governmental requirements, including those relevant to exemption from federal income tax under 501(c)(3).
MFC Ministries Inc. implements the following measures to help assure that we fulfill
our responsibilities to God, to you, and to the government.
Morgantown Faith Center began in 1998 with an unincorporated religious association meeting from house to house. Over the years, that home Bible study grew into a vibrant church on fire for God. In 2006, Morgantown Faith Center reorganized and became MFC Ministries, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit corporation, with Morgantown Faith Center being a registered trade name still used for the conduct of worship services and similar activities. Men of Honor Ministries (a men’s ministry), Women of Witness Ministries (a women’s ministry), and Leading Ladies Ministries (another women’s ministry) have all been birthed out of MFC Ministries and
operate as trade names within MFC Ministries, Inc. The next year, a second church, Salvation House Ministries, was founded in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania as another non-profit corporation under the MFC Ministries, Inc. group exemption. In 2009, Restoration Christian College and School of Ministry, a Bible school, was founded as another non-profit corporation under the MFC Ministries, Inc. group exemption. MFC Ministries controls the activities of Salvation House Ministries and Restoration Christian College and School of Ministry.
Each member of MFC Ministries' Boards of Directors complies with a conflict of interest policy, requiring each board member to rescue him or herself from any deliberations and voting on any matter that directly relates to him or her, and to always act in the best
interest of the organization.
Since 2006, MFC Ministries Inc. has been monitored monthly by a prominent national outside accounting firm.
MFC Ministries Inc. does not rely solely on our own resources, but, when needed, we retain the services of nationally known and knowledgeable legal and compliance advisors to provide insight, guidance,
In accordance with "best practices." as recommended by our accounting firm and auditors, MFC Ministries Inc. has implemented additional internal controls related to deposits of cash and checks, purchasing , system protection, inventory, security, etc. to protect organizational assets.
Compensation guidelines for all staff members, including Apostle Joe Perozich and Pastor Rena Perozich, officers and directors, prevent any employee from benefiting from church resources beyond what they specifically earn. The compensation (including any appropriate housing allowance) for Apostle Joe Perozich and Pastor Rena Perozich, officers, directors, and key employees is established and reviewed once annually by an independent Executive Leadership Compensation Committee (ELCC) as required by the Internal Revenue Service. The ELCC is composed of non-interested non-compensated directors advised
by respected professionals. The committee reviews independent compensation survey data and each individual’s contribution to the achievement of the Church’s ministry objectives when setting each person’s compensation. This method is consistent with “best practices” for nonprofit organizations, and with a “safe harbor” method preferred by the Internal Revenue Service, and prevents Apostle Joe Perozich and Pastor Rena Perozich, officers, directors, and key employees from setting their own or each other’s compensation.
MFC Ministries takes its responsibility as a recipient of your donations very seriously. All control party compensation and other general or administrative costs of the organization are funded by contributions from the attendees of the Morgantown Faith Center church services. This means that 100% of any other contributions to MFC Ministries or its other related ministries, such as donations by mail, telephone, or Internet, are utilized for spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and other tax-exempt 501(c)(3) purposes. Similarly, all contributionsto Salvation House Ministries and Restoration Christian College and School of Ministry remain “in house” to
fund the continued provision of church services, Bible classes, and other 501(c)(3) tax exempt activities by that organization.
Internal Audit Team
Our internal audit team is sanctioned and established by our board. This team has considerable authority to accomplish consistent compliance throughout the organization. All employees, including Apostle Joe Perozich and Pastor Rena Perozich, officers, directors, and key employees, are required to abide by the team’s determinations.
MFC Ministries Inc. is committed to operating at the highest level of financial integrity with the primary vision of advancing the Kingdom of Jesus Christ around the world and empowering Christians to come into the full Blessings of God!
