The Promise is an online church community. A social media church. A church with out walls, or borders.MATTHEW 18:20 – FOR WHERE TWO OR THREE ARE GATHERED IN MY NAME, THERE AM I IN THE MIDST OF THEM. ** We are all Christians despite our Denominations. Everyone can come here and uplift Christ Online.
Hello, My name is Brother Derrick W. Jackson and I am ecstatic and proud to show you my social media church / Online Church. While I am a new Minister (Please note I have not been ordained nor do I have a minister's license but I have answered the call to spread the word) I am not new to the church and worshipping Jesus Christ. I'm his human clay that he is molding every day, in other words I'm not perfect and have made a lot of mistakes that I do not want others to repeat. As the fires burn in California we pray for the victims. Life shows us all the time that we are not always in control and bad things happen to good people. A lot of times we scream out, "WHY GOD!!!!" Several months ago I broke down on Labernum Avenue in Richmond, Virginia screaming, "He plays games with peoples lives!!" God is not like man and remember he loves you unconditionally. And life does not turn out as we expect it but we know "his will be done". Wi
We have witnessed another killing of a black man at the hands of the police. His name was George Floyd and he was arrested for using a counterfeit $20 allegedly at a store. Police had detained him and he died after an officer had him on the ground and handcuffed and pressed his knee into Floyd's neck for over 8 minutes. Floyd was heard in the video telling the officer he could not breathe several times then calling for his mother. Days afterward people mostly black gathered in front of the third precinct which was later burned to the ground. I know this makes us in the Black Community upset, disappointed, and sad but we cannot be violent by no means. We must remember that this officer is not all police. Most police dedicated their lives to protecting the community. This death should not have happened and is unexcusable.
